911: In Plane Site: Director’s Cut is a 2006 documentary that advocates a number of 9/11 conspiracy theories. Photographs and video footage from that day are presented as evidence that the public was not given all of the facts surrounding the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. The full-length version of documentary was released on Google Video in January 2007. Several of the claims made in the film have been rejected by individuals in the 9/11 Truth Movement.



The films ask a series of leading questions about 9/11 conspiracy theories, then analyzes the events with selected evidence to answer those questions:

  • "Why were America and the world never shown the video and photographs of the Pentagon, before the outer wall had collapsed showing only one 16 ft (4.9 m). hole? Many people do not realize that the outer wall did not collapse until almost 30 minutes after the initial impact.
  • "Given that the outer wall of the Pentagon had not yet collapsed and the only hole is approximately 16 ft (4.9 m). in diameter - how does a jetliner over 44 feet (13 m) tall and 125 ft (38 m). wide fit into that hole as shown in the crystal-clear and close-up photographic evidence from the Pentagon? Furthermore, can physics explain why there is no damage to the Pentagon's upper floors where the tail section would have hit?
  • "Why was there no Boeing debris outside the Pentagon building immediately after the event?"
  • "In the aftermath, it was reported by media sources, that a giant 100 ft (30 m). crater was plowed into the front lawn of the Pentagon as the result of a powerful airliner crash? Why does photographic evidence overwhelmingly show that this was absolutely not the case? Why no crater? Why no skid marks? Why no burn marks? Why was the entire world deliberately misled?
  • "How does a Boeing 757, constructed from lightweight aluminum, penetrate over 9 ft (2.7 m). of steel reinforced concrete?
  • "At the World Trade Center, why did firefighters, reporters and other on-the-scene eyewitnesses describe a demolition-like, pancake collapse of buildings One, Two & Seven?"
  • "What is the bright flash on the right side of the Boeing 767, seen just before impact on both the North Tower & the South Tower, captured on video by 5 separate cameramen including CNN and ABC? Slow motion analysis reveals startling verification of this extraordinary event and raises the question, "What is it?"
  • "Why were there numerous reports of bombs & explosions going off in and around the WTC before any buildings had collapsed? Hear & see the testimony of the reporters, rescue teams and eyewitnesses who tell a different story of potential demolition charges, unexplained explosions, and vehicles loaded with explosives as reported on live television the morning of Sept. 11, 2001."
  • "Why did a FOX News employee, who witnessed the second tower attack, report seeing no windows on "Flight 175" a commercial United Airlines jetliner? Why did another eyewitness report that United Airlines Flight 175 was not a commercial airliner? What kind of plane hit the second tower?"
  • "Is there some type of exterior swelling protruding from the undercarriage of "Flight 175"? An independently conducted computerized digital analysis says yes. Where was this "instrument" attached? How could it have departed from a commercial airport without being noticed? What purpose did it serve in the attacks?"

Criticism of the claims of In Plane Site

  • Despite the film's assertions that "a jetliner is too large to fit into the hole made in The Pentagon," others have refuted this claim by showing that a hole of over 90 feet (27 m) in width was made on the first floor. Films such as In Plane Site and Loose Change only refer to the smaller hole on the second floor.
  • One theory the film suggests, that at least one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center towers was a twin engine U.S. military plane, not a commercial airliner (swapped plane theory), has been refuted by a number of researchers, however the supporters of this evidence have published articles criticizing such articles.
  • The film also suggested that "pods" were attached to the undersides of the planes which hit the World Trade Center towers and fired missiles into the buildings.

Some who research the events of 9/11 assert that such mixing of clear hoax claims -- i.e., the involvement of pods, missiles, "flashes", and tanker planes -- with valid questions about the attack, is a means to discredit what they see as valid questions by association.


A short review in the The Portland Mercury says of In Plane Site, "it features both an exceedingly annoying crackpot theorist and outlandish, unsubstantiated allegations about blurrily pixelized photos that don't really show anything."[1]

Another review at states, "Nor does the presentation explain, if the attack planes were military, what happened to the commercial planes. It hints that they might have been shot down over the ocean. The trouble is that they weren't necessarily over the ocean. And who remembers an Atlantic crash of an airliner where debris such as luggage did not wash up all up and down the Eastern seaboard? If airliners went down in the sea, the secret could not have been kept for long. It's fine to be entertained by this stuff, even if it is a bit morbid. But let's not lose our senses."[2]
