Pilots For 9/11 Truth Forum _ At the Gate... _ Can You Board Plane After Push-back?

aviation professionals -- pilots, ramp techs, etc


Some of you may know that there are conflicting accounts regarding the departure gate of AA 11. Some sources say it was Gate 26, some say Gate 32.

I gathered the evidence here (my first 9/11 piece):

The 9/11 Commission Report was published half a year later and presented - in my eyes - confirmation for the oddities at Logan Airport. F.I. in the footnotes we learn that some of the passengers of Flight 11 boarded the plane after the push-back! Can any aviation expert tell me how this is possible?

I'm a former ATC Specialist from Dayton, Ohio. I do NOT believe it is possible to board, after an aircraft has called ATC for push-back, and push-back has occurred. That said, it could happen, that a flight would close the door, call for push-back, and then be told by local operations that they need to board another passenger, whereupon they would reopen the door (prior to actual push-back), and board the customer.
