Did I understand him correctly? The controller for American 11 and the Egyptair 990 was the same guy? And also a third aircraft?

Yep. Looks that way, Flight AA11, UA175 as well as Egyptair 990.

Who is this Pete Zalewski? Maybe the question should be who WAS he? Followed by another, what was he? How long had he been ATC prior to 9/11 and how long afterwards was he an ATC?

Perhaps he came from the same spook pool as that guy with the Harley emblazoned sweat shirt and BB cap who explained on the day how the WTC fell '...mostly due to structural failure because the fires were just too intense.'

Yes. Pete Zalewsi was Responsible for AA11, UA 175 and for Egyptair 900 in '99...

I am wondering, why he isn't mentioned here more frequently.

My name is Pete Zalewski, I was a Special Operations Intelligence Officer during the Gulf War and I believe I may have contracted the Mycoplasma you suspect maybe-causing problems in some veterans.

This might be an explaination, Pete. But it doesn't work as an excuse.

...

My symptoms over the past two years included a constant sore throat (with cobblestoning), night sweats, shortness of breath, dizziness, joint pain, short term memory loss, headaches, double vision, diarrhea, and other bowl problems, skin inflammations and severe moderate fatigue. My whole immune system seemed effected.

See, Pete, is there any poetic justice?.

...

...Putting that together with the matching symptoms (I even noticed, like Darrell, that flying in aircraft and dealing with pressure/altitude changes makes it very likely that the symptoms will occur),

Doesn't sound as if Flight Controller is the aprropriate job then.

the efficacy of particular antibiotic treatment, and the fact that I had frequent contact with all sorts of suspect things (SCUD missile parts, Iraqi prisoners, etc.)

Yep. SCUD missles and Iraqi prisoners. (Sic!)

I saw too many pieces fitting together to treat this all as mere coincidence.

actual sections from their report:
http://www.archives.gov/legislative/resear...rt-sept2005.pdf

QUOTE
FAA air traffic controller Peter Zalewski, stationed at the Boston Air Route Traffic
Control Center (Boston Center) radioed directional instructions: "American 11 turn
twenty degrees right." Flight 11 replied: "twenty right American 11." This was the last
routine communication received from the flight. Seconds later, air traffic control radioed
Flight 11 again, this time instructing the aircraft to climb to 35,000 feet. The flight did
not respond. Over the next ten minutes, air traffic control tried nine times to contact the
flight. All attempts were unsuccessful. 47

(47 NTSB report, Air Traffic Control Recording-American Airlines Flight 11, Dec. 21, 2001;'FAA report,
Aircraft Accident File ZBW-ARTCC-148, Feb. 15, 2002)


QUOTE
Shortly before 8:25 A.M., air traffic controller Zalewski heard two clicks over the
frequency assigned to the flight, and radioed in response, "Is that American eleven trying
to call?" Five seconds later, a voice with a foreign accent addressed the passengers. "We
have some planes. Just stay quiet and you'll be okay. We're returning to the airport." 65

(65. FAA audio file, Boston Center, position 46R, 8:24:38 and 8:24:56; Peter Zalewski interview (Sept. 23, 2003)


QUOTE
Because the wrong button was pushed, this message was heard not by the passengers but
by air traffic control. The controller did not comprehend the first sentence ("planes"); it
was understood 30 minutes later after a facility manager was able to locate and replay the
tape. (See 9:03 A.M. entry below.)

(At about 9:03 A.M., Boston Center reported to the FAA's New England regional office
that the hijackers stated, "We have some planes" during the 8:25 A.M. transmission from
Flight 11 - 106)

(106 Peter Zalewski interview (Sept. 23, 2003.)


QUOTE
Seconds later, Boston Center heard the following transmission from the same foreign
voice: "Nobody move. Everything will be okay. If you try to make any moves, you'll
endanger yourself and the airplane. Just stay quiet." 66

(66 - FAA memo -F'Full Transcript; Aircraft Accident; AAL l1;NewYork, NY; Septemberi 11,-20.01,"1' Feb.. - :. -
- 5, 2002. p.-11; Peter Zalewski interview (Sept 23, 2003).


QUOTE
According to Ong's simultaneous reporting, no announcements had been made from the cockpit to
the passengers. This suggests that the hijackers' announcements were not heard in the cabin, and
that they did not know how to operate the radio properly.

8:25 A.M. After hearing the second transmission from the aircraft, controllers at Boston
Center believed that Flight 11 had been hijacked.67

(67 Peter Zalewski interview (Sept. 23, 2003); John Schippani interview (Sept 22, 2003)


QUOTE
Also at 8:25 A.M., an American Airlines air traffic control (ATC) specialist at the SOC
sent another ACARS message to Flight 11: "Plz contact Boston Center ASAP.. .They
have lost radio contact and your transponder signal." Again, the aircraft did not respond
to this or subsequent ACARS messages attempting to reestablish contact with the
cockpit.68

(68 American Airlines record, Dispatch Environmental Control/Weekly Flight Summary for Flight 11, Sept
l 1, 2001)



the rest of the commish's "peter zalewski" referrences:
QUOTE
107 AAL transcript, telephone call from AAL system operations control to FAA Air Traffic Control
System Command Center, Sept. 11, 2001.

108 Boston Center was reporting information it had received from an FAA headquarters teleconference.
NEADS audio file, Identification Technician position, Channel 7, at 9:21:10.

109 The report of Flight 11 heading south - the cause of the Langley scramble - is reflected not just in
taped conversations at NEADS, but in taped conversations at various FAA centers, on NORAD's instant
messaging system, and on taped conversations of the Pentagon-convened "significant event" (which
transitioned to an "air threat") conference call. The report was also readily acknowledged in Commission
interviews of operational personnel in FAA and NORAD. Nonetheless, it is not recounted in a single
public timeline or statement issued by the FAA or the Department of Defense. Instead, the scramble at
Langley was publicly attributed to the reported hijacking of Flight 77, Flight 93, or some combination of
the two.

That is when Pete Zyleski slid back in his chair and calimed he had a hijack.

Still can't ever remember aircraft being scrambled for an emergency except Payne Stewart. We wouldn't have scrambled until the aircraft was considered hiajcked. If Mohammed Atta never spoke on frquency, then yes eventually we would have interpreted it as a hijack. I can't say when because each controller is different. I would assume in about five minutes from the turn, that being the most unexpected event.

Even then who knows, as it was when Peter Zyleski stated it to the supervisor the supervisor questioned him "do you really think its a hijack" Pete replied with "F#$% Y%$".

In this story we refer to him as "Cheap Shot", but I have verified his real identity. These are his views, and do not represent the views of any group or organization.
Final release date: October 28, 2007"

Q: First of all, could you briefly introduce yourself and tell about your work experience.

Cheap Shot: I am a controller at Boston Center, have been since 1982. In 1989 I did two years in the Airspace and Procedures office at Boston Center. In 1991 I returned to the Airspace Office on a permanent basis. In 1995 we restructured at the Center and I also assumed the Military Liaison or Military Specialist Position along with my Airspace Duties.

As the military specialist I am responsible for all military procedures between Boston Center and the military units in my airspace, and any visiting military units that participate in any of our Special Use Airspace (SUA). Through the years I have developed a pretty good working relationship with those units. One of the main units I deal with is the Northeastern Air Defense Sector (NEADS). They schedule the majority of SUA in Boston Center Airspace.

zalewski is a ghost online. outside of the 9/11 referrences, i havent found any information on him. searches at http://www.natca.org/ and http://www.atca.org/ show no results for him.

also missing, is any info linking him to the Egypt Air crash. i hate to disappoint anyone, but if im not mistaken, Peter Zalweski of 9/11 was working the Boston ATC center, while the record shows egypt air was in contact with New York's ATC before its crash:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EgyptAir_Flig...0#_note-ntsb-3a
QUOTE
U.S. Air Traffic Controllers provide trans-Atlantic flight control operations as a part of the "New York Center" (referred to in radio conversations simply as "Center" and abbreviated in the reports as "ZNY"). The airspace is divided into "areas", and "Area F" was the section that oversaw the airspace through which Flight 990 was flying. Trans-Atlantic commercial air traffic travels via a system of routes called North Atlantic Tracks, and Flight 990 was the only aircraft at the time assigned to fly North Atlantic Track Zulu. There are also a number of military operations areas over the Atlantic, called "Warning Areas", which are also monitored by New York Center, but records show that these were inactive the night of the accident.[5]

Interaction between ZNY and Flight 990 was completely routine. After takeoff, Flight 990 was handled by three different controllers as it climbed up in stages to its assigned cruising altitude.[5] The aircraft, like all commercial airliners, was equipped with a Mode C transponder, which automatically reported the plane's altitude when queried by the ATC radar. At 1:44, the transponder indicated that Flight 990 had leveled off at FL330. Three minutes later, the controller requested that Flight 990 switch communications radio frequencies for better reception. A pilot on Flight 990 acknowledged on the new frequency. This was the last transmission received from Flight 990.

karl is there an index of sources for the video (are any mentioned in the video)? it would be helpful to find out where they got the information that connects Zalewski to Egypt 990. im not saying its claim about zalewski/990 is not true, but so far i havent been able to corroborate it.

by the way - thanks karl for posting the video...

cheers.gif


ETA:
just to be clear, egyptair crashed in late oct 1999, 2 years prior to 9/11. so there is every possibility that Zalewski may have worked in NY in 99 and Boston in 2001, nothing rules this out. it just awaits confirmation (somehow)...

Excellent work, paranoia!

It's obvious, that Zalewski's roll was to help staging the 'hijacking'.




I'll move this thread to 'American 11' Subforum later and PM our librarian.

after reading thru the ATC transcript for the Egypt Air crash, i have a question for any aviation professionals in da house:
http://www.ntsb.gov/events/ea990/docket/Ex_3A_attA.pdf



how common is or isnt it to have an UNKNOWN craft transmitting? not to go off topic too far if it is indeed a common occurrence, but if it is NOT, please elaborate on how. thank you.



ETA:
not long ago i was looking into u93 and the cleveland "rumors" about NASA's center adjacent/attached to the airport there, when i came upon a fairly obscure tidbit related to the Egypt Air 990 crash:

EA990 is another one of those aircraft catastrophes which i consider the murder of many to camouflage the murder of a few.

as i think i have mentioned many times, airliner catastrophes are very convenient mechanisms to hide murder. from my analysis over the years, i call the arrow air "accident" in gander, pa103, twa800, aa587, as261, ea990, sr111 as murders disguised as catastrophes.

there are many aspects of ea990 that seemed to go unreported. such as, why did that aircraft take 2+ hours longer than normal to transit conus. there are reports that it stopped at edwards afb to pick up a coterie of egyptian general officers.

but i think we shall never know that. correct me if i am mistaken, but isn't it true that the records of the flight of this aircraft have been sequestered by the state?

i also think that there was a spook on this flight that exited at jfk. quite candidly, i think that this spook[on mossad's payroll?] placed an explosive device on this plane prior to his departure. but i could be wrong.

on the other hand, perhaps hosni mubarak was content to see these general officers go. perhaps he recognized them as potential coupsters.

all i know for sure is this, no journalists[sic] cared to focus on investigating these catastrophes. and neither did dick collins.

but as many of us have concluded, aopa is a corporate aviation lobbying entity today, cloaked as a genav organization.

aopa will not be ruffling any corporate, state feathers.

did you notice that an El Al flight was also in the air at the time? i would be over-stepping the usual research boundaries by stating so, but maybe there was a direct connection. i cant really say how any El Al flight could directly play a part in any sabotage, but i did find its presence to be (at least) "interesting".

but one can not rule out the mossad as possible suspects (regardless of the El Al flight), given the nature of the their adverserial relationship with egypt. but you are right that detailed information (of a "sensitive nature") about the 990 flight is probably highly guarded/classified or otherwise unavailable, so we wont be able to confrim or prove any possible suspicions.

btw - at the moment i am busy watching an NBC dateline special online, that tells 911 from an ATC point of view. there are 5 vids there that i recommend watching:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14754701/

look for this box:



the interview with Pete Zalewski starts around 3:33 of the first video.
this screencap is from the second video:

(Pete Zalewski)


also on that NBC page is the following transcript:
QUOTE
8:14 am.: 14 minutes since take-off
American 11 is headed up to its cruising altitude of 35,000 feet, but not before Zalewski radios the pilot a routine order to turn, to keep enough space between American 11 and another plane.

Zalewski: I turn him to 20 degrees right, he took the turn. I then told American 11, “Climb and maintain flight level three-five-zero, 35,000 feet.” There was no response.

A moment of concern perhaps, but that was not uncommon.

Zalewski: At that point, I was just thinking that it was, you know, maybe the pilots weren’t paying attention, or there’s something wrong with the frequency.

Zalewski followed procedures, continuing to try to raise American 11 on the frequency.

Zalewski: And at first, it was pretty much, you know, American 11, you know, “Are you paying attention? Are you listening?” And there was still no response. I used the emergency frequency to try and get a hold of him through that. There was no response.

By now Zalewski is running a mental checklist, trying to account for the loss of communication — a technical problem or maybe a mistake on the pilot’s part?

Zalewski: I went back the previous sector to see if the pilot had accidentally flipped the switch back over on the radio. At that point there was still nothing. We weren’t hearing from him.

American 11 was “NORDO”—“no radio contact.” Zalewski stepped up his efforts.

Zalewski: I would go on to call that aircraft 12 times.

And as it went on, I begin to get more concerned.


so check it out.

The Credits before the end of the video show the usual suspects,
one of them is "pilotsfor911truth.org"... tongue.gif

The historian, Mr Hauß, stated, that it was later reported by another
ATC that Zalewski was responsible for the flight route of EA990.
He didn't mention the name of the man.

but are either of the 2 above the same boston ATC peter? i lean in favor of probably not.

Now I am inclined to agree. Particularly as, in the pic's available he does not look old enough to be a first Gulf War vet.

However it was the very lack of information on him, as you indicated with your 'ghost' referrence, that prompted me to enquire so as to learn if others had more on him.

The ATC dialogue WRT Pete Zalewski isn't the only jarring note with ATC dialogue that day.

Great job Paranoia, on the research! thumbsup.gif

EA990 has always been mysterious, and I agree that it and TWA800 were probably taken down as a way to execute somebody. If there is ever a book written them, the passenger lists must be important somehow.

Thanks for that link, gid!

WTF are these guys talking about?
Although, they report precisely every minute,
they anly talk about lost radio contact and lost transmitter signals
and how they turned over the plane to another controller, about thinking
what this could mean, about the highjacker's "mistakes" of transmitting
radio to the control center instead of into the cabin and switching on UA175's
transponder briefly... and so on. -
But not a word, not even the mentioning of the idea, of contacting NORAD
in the first 4o minutes or so of the obvious highjacking. Not a word.

And the moderator of the show doesn't even try to implicate that
this should be a standart procedere.

-first off, sorry Carl for misspelling your name in my earlier post. (i promise it wont happen again wink.gif )

-second, i just wanted to mention (carl, omega) i'm not trying to prove anyone wrong, i hope i didnt come across that way. i always welcome your research/deductions, as i hope you do mine. my only aim was to assign some probability (based on my own deductions) to the possibilities that were presented.


regarding Zalewski's "ghost status": part of the problem (imo) is the spelling of his name. there are at least 5 variations of how to spell it, and im not sure NBC got it right (possibly intentionally). i have in fact tried every spelling i could think of, but run into either too many referrences for a particular spelling, or very few. i am certain he has to exist on the net somewhere, but havent yet figured out the proper search terms for a successful query.

i wanted to add, and maybe this is common knowledge for you aviation guys, but i had no clue that Boston ARTCC is actually in New Hampshire, not in Boston! i had been looking for Zalewski in Massachusets, when he could have been in NH. but the Boston ARTCC (in Nashua NH) is located less than 50 miles from Boston, so perhaps with a long commute, Peter could have still lived in Massachusets, so who knows? none the less, i still havent found him, but wanted to make that distinction (about Boston ARTCC vs. Logan Airport's Boston control tower) for some of the other laymen who were unaware of it.


now regarding the Egypt Air allegation about Zalewski, i found 2 original sources for that information:

FAA employee: Hijacked jets almost collided

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — The two hijacked jets that demolished the World Trade Center nearly crashed into each other while heading to their target, according to a Federal Aviation Administration employee at a regional control center. "The two aircraft got too close to each other down by Stewart" International Airport in New Windsor, N.Y., about 55 miles north of New York City, the employee told The Telegraph of Nashua. It wasn't clear how close they got after they left Boston 15 minutes apart Tuesday morning, both headed for Los Angeles. Hijackers gained control of American Airlines Flight 11 around Gardner, Mass., said the employee, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Gardner is about 45 miles northwest of Boston."

Many controllers also watched events unfold on the Nashua control center's television, but never expected Flight 175 to hit the second World Trade Center tower because of that sustained contact with the crew, the employee said.

"After the first plane hit, nobody imagined it would happen again," the employee said. "We all thought that was it. It totally caught everybody off guard.

"It's not in anyone's mind they're hitting a target," the employee said. "When somebody takes a plane over, they try to negotiate a release with money."

One air traffic controller with the help of an assistant monitored the two Boeing 767s that toppled the World Trade Center, the employee said.

The same controller handled Egypt Air Flight 990 when it crashed off the coast of Massachusetts in 1999, the employee said. The controller is "pretty disturbed" that he lost both planes, the employee said.



Thursday, September 13, 2001 an earlier source (slightly different text) for the above, from a new hampshire publication:

The two hijacked jets that sliced into the World Trade Center nearly crashed into each other before reaching New York City, according to a Federal Aviation Administration employee who works in the Nashua control facility.
FAA air traffic controllers in Nashua have learned through discussions with other controllers that an F-16 fighter stayed in hot pursuit of another hijacked commercial airliner until it crashed in Pennsylvania, said the employee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The center is one of 20 FAA facilities that monitor long-distance flights once they leave airports.
The morning's surreal moments included a controller, who had just arrived for work, discovering that his wife's American Airline flight was involved in the day of terror, the employee said.

One air traffic controller - with the help of an assistant - monitored the flight patterns of the two jets that toppled the World Trade Center, the employee said. He directed American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 - both Boeing 767 jets that had Boston to Los Angeles routes, the employee said.

The same controller handled Egypt Air Flight 990 when it crashed off the coast of Massachusetts in 1999, the employee said. Hijackers gained control of American Airlines Flight 11 around Gardner, Mass., the employee said. "American was just flying around, doing what it wanted," the employee said of the jet's approach to New York.


so i guess (with a fair amount of certainty) that Hauss and Co. (makers of the german documentary) deduced that Zalewski was the guy referrenced by the anonymous source (above) as the Egypt Air controller, based on the eventually public-knowledge that Zalewski was the controller who handled the "hijacked" 9/11 flights.


i did some digging into the NTSB's info on the Egypt Air crash, and found that there was no Zalweski working the ATC that day:

FAClLlTY ACCIDENT/INCIDENT NOTIFICATION RECORD (names and phone numbers):
http://www.ntsb.gov/events/ea990/docket/Ex_3A_attI.pdf

Daily Record of Facility Operation:
http://www.ntsb.gov/events/ea990/docket/Ex_3A_attJ.pdf

the above are fairly detailed records of the events and seem to include names and or referrences to the ATC personnel who were present and involved in the events as related to EA990. there is a "Yesinowski" in the control tower at ZNY that day, so its possible the anonymous source may have made an unintentional error. or he/she intentionally sensationalized the info he/she revealed to the media, but i cant really fathom why.

there is of course, always the chance that the NTSB's EA990 exhibit for whatever reason, is inaccurate, so it is not conclusive. as a result i looked for some sort of way to contact any of the names mentioned as being in the ATC tower when EA990 crashed. the best i could come up with was an obituary page for the Supervisor, Mr.Gordon Lee Biggio (whose name appears in the above NTSB links).


in the online guestbook for his obituary, the guest's posts identify him as a ZNY controller, AND ALSO includes some possible people to contact):

on that page is an easy link button where you can attempt to contact the above people, so if anyone is interested, it might be worth a shot to see if any of them can confirm Zalewski as having been present at ZNY (new york) when EA990 crashed.

so not to take anything away from the german documentary for i found it to be concise, well-paced, and informative, but to make it full-proof, they may want to reconsider that one claim about Zalewski and EA990.
