September 24

But most alarming of all was a sound recording taken from the cabin which revealed reluctance to break into the cabin and overpower the pilots. But at this late stage an unidentified man with a commanding voice rallied the perpetrators with the calm, but firm words "Are you guys ready? Lets Roll".
