Another BBC style - knowledge of event before it even happened.

They say in the clip that they were told to evacuate the tower, is that "normal" ATC procedure?

Pittsburgh Control Tower Evacuated Over 15 Minutes Before 9/11 Crash Sunday, published September 23, 2001:

City and county officials haven't had time to fully analyze every action that was taken here Sept. 11, a day when most Downtown employers started sending their employees home in the middle of the morning, which created gridlock on city streets.

It wasn't a forced evacuation, officials noted, just a reaction to the crash of two planes into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon and fears that the fourth plane that crashed in Somerset County had been headed to Pittsburgh.

It is clear from 911 tapes that local officials had less than 15 minutes' warning that the hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 was in Pittsburgh airspace before the plane crashed at 10:06 a.m. in Somerset County, killing all 44 people aboard.

Full learned about the errant plane at 9:53 a.m. That's when he got a call alerting him that the control tower at Pittsburgh International Airport had been evacuated. Thirteen minutes earlier, he had talked to an airport official who had no indication of any threat.

Between those two conversations, the Pittsburgh tower had received a call from the Cleveland air traffic control tower, saying a plane was heading toward Pittsburgh and refusing to communicate with controllers. The FAA ordered the Pittsburgh control tower evacuated at 9:49 a.m. Full said Flight 93 was probably traveling at 300 to 400 mph. At that speed, Full said, "there is nothing we could do" to evacuate people before a crash.

Once the plane had crashed, "we made a joint decision with the city of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County that there was no credible threat on our territory and we would not order a mandatory evacuation," Full said.
