Source Ananova(!), at least they are up to speed:

Airline confirms loss of two flights with 156 on board

A US airline has confirmed the loss of two flights with 156 people on board.

American Airlines says its Flight 11 from Boston to Los Angeles had 81 passengers and crew on board.

American Airlines Flight 77 from Dullas Airport near Washington to Los Angeles was carrying up to 58 crew and passengers.

It is not yet known exactly where each plane crashed.

Aviation authorities have reported several planes are still unaccounted for in addition to those crashed.

United Airlines has confirmed its flight from Newark, New Jersey, to San Francisco has crashed near Pittsburgh.

The airline also says it is "deeply concerned" about flight number 175 from Boston to LA.

The company refused to say whether flight 175 is one of those that crashed and would not give details of how many people were on board. There are no further details at this stage.

In Wilmington here the red cross is asking people to come donate blood, because they need it for everyone hurt... so thats what I'm going to go do.
2001-09-11 11:57:49 AM  
I don't claim this to be true or anything, but please take one second on this busy day to read....it's interesting to say the least.

This was an old hobby of mine, I'm not a wacko who actually believes this stuff...but
Nostradamus worked in anagrams, in 1999, I was freaked out and would not go to NY because he said, paraphrasing now, "fire burns the new city at 45 degrees 1999."

Nostradamus worked in anagrams..the anagram of 1999 is 9111, today's date, and the day that fire burned new York city ( the new city, located at 45 degrees on the map)

spooky stuff to think about. what an awful day for America

also, Nostradamus said the new antichrist that would be fought would be an anagram of the work "mabus" Usma b...en Laden....

European parliament is being evacuated as a precaution.

It's 5pm here so I'm going home now to plug myself into the TV. Good luck to all US Farkers - thoughts are with you.

Christ Almighty. I just heard there could have been 20,000 people still in the towers
2001-09-11 11:58:51 AM  
From News.com :

The president ordered a full-scale investigation to "hunt down the folks who committed this act."

FOLKS? Jesus...

NBC is reporting that there were possibly bombs/explosive devices inside the WTC, besides the plane impacts.
2001-09-11 11:59:25 AM  
All my guests at the hotel where I work are staring at the TV right now... Yanks, hope you get to nuke the bastards responsible for this!
And to all moslems celebrating this: YOUR GOD CAN NOT HELP YOU NOW!
2001-09-11 11:59:38 AM  
Ahh, Nostradamus, who makes vague prophecies that can be interpreted any way.
2001-09-11 11:59:47 AM  
One last post: 9th September was date of Palestinian annexation in 1922. Nothing to do with bloody Nostradamus.
2001-09-11 12:00:06 PM  
I hope the peace lover now realize the world is not a basket of flowers. Gen Y folks will be fighting this war now.

I work right here in DC and can see the Pentagon smoke from here. My co worker is actually biatching because her softball game will be canceled.

Stern is calling for nuclear attack on the Middle East. He's an hour overtime. Beware the demogogues.
2001-09-11 12:01:10 PM  
And I'm sure all muslims aren't celebrating this. Has it even been confirmed yet? Still, lets not go out and persecute american muslims now...
2001-09-11 12:01:26 PM  
Too late for me over here, thanks to all for keeping me updated. I'm off to bed. You are in my prayers.

Bush Jr. was quoted as saying "this act of terrorism will not stand"....

Bush Sr. during the Gulf War: "This agression (against Kuwait) will not stand...."

I live in Brooklyn. This is a really sad day. Just got contacted by an ex-coworker who currently works in the World Trade Center. Thank god he was late for work today. Still trying to find out if one of my good friends made it out of the World Financial Center (next door) safely.

Fourth Plane down in Summerset Penn?

anyone confirm?
2001-09-11 12:02:23 PM  
If you are able, I urge each and every one of you to go donate blood today
2001-09-11 12:02:26 PM  
Now I hear that they're evacuating the Rennaissance Center in downtown Detroit (GM's world HQ - a big group of tall buildings). Possibly hijacked plane in Toledo airspace. Another report of a hijacked plane on the ground at Toledo with a bomb in it. wow.

CNN.com is up and running....everything removed but top story
2001-09-11 12:03:21 PM  
The best thing we can do to retaliate would be to rebuild those towers. That and shoot those responsible in the head.
2001-09-11 12:03:24 PM  
I'm glad I live in Canada.
Still, this is quite terrible...

But nuking probably isn't the answer.
It seems that nuclear weapons are more a method of preventing violence rather than causing it (a method of keeping balance one might say).
Before everybody goes off yelling "nuke! nuke!", think of the possible rammifications(sp) of that.

Do your really think that all other countries are going to stand by while someone gets nuked?
2001-09-11 12:03:45 PM  
NBC showed Palestinians celebrating in the streets, chanting God is great, "America is the head of the snake, always stands behind Israel."

Just WATCH how we stand behind them now.
2001-09-11 12:04:04 PM  
Rumors out here in LA are something is suppossed to happen at 9am. We'll know in the next few minutes.

I'm just really worried about a friend of mine who lives about 6 blocks from WTC.
2001-09-11 12:04:17 PM

2001-09-11 12:06:18 PM  
BTW. If Lamonte Henderson happens to be a farker. Send some e-mail out to LA.

2001-09-11 12:06:45 PM  
they just woke us up over here in Korea, it's unbelievable. Is the entire military over there getting ready? What news sites are working on the web right now, no tv up here. Are phone lines up throughout the states?
2001-09-11 12:07:29 PM  
Get on fark chat.
2001-09-11 12:07:39 PM  
Phones are crazy here in DC. My friends keep emailing me to make sure I'm ok. We saw the Pentagon go up before CNN reported it.
2001-09-11 12:08:02 PM  
All phones are up
2001-09-11 12:08:13 PM  

I'd stay here, all major news sites are farked...or try salon.com.

NVM- My Girlfriend works in Wheaton and could see the smoke
2001-09-11 12:09:42 PM  
It's really scary here. My boss won't let us leave. Says we're better off here than running around outside. Good thing, since I live very close to Cheney's house.
2001-09-11 12:09:55 PM  
There are blood collection points all around NYC.

Dan Rather just called this "Pearl Harbor II".

Anyone out here know where I can get a shelter built? :|

2001-09-11 12:10:09 PM  
first, thank you Drew and Co. You've provided a service here today.

Second, do not think this is an ISLAMIC attack. This is a TERRORIST attack.

Third, repercussions and consequences here are enormous. Death toll in multi-thousands, definite. Retaliation, for sure. Economic meltdown, good chance. Other unrelated violence, probable. Loss of some freedoms here in the US, you bet.
2001-09-11 12:10:44 PM  
If anyone out there reading this is in the NYC area:
2001-09-11 12:11:06 PM  
Who all is taking credit? I"ve heard the Jihad, Palestine, Osama bin Laden, etc.

United 175 was the second plane to hit the Towers...
2001-09-11 12:12:21 PM  
Whew! I am glad I did my blood duty just yesterday...
2001-09-11 12:12:29 PM  
CBC just reported, a van illegally parked outside the Canadian parliament has caused the building to be evacuated... Probably just Bob McKenzie, but you never know...
