Comment: Alec Baldwin – A 9/11 Conversation

“NYers on 9/11 unfortunat­ely had the double slam, that defined without question, that terrorists were seeking to punish the US in retributio­n for some perceived grievous error committed. If it were "eye for an eye" I hope it was not over Iran Flight 655 shot down July 3, 1988 by the USS Vincennes. It was flying to Dubai from Iran in the Persian Gulf (or "Arabian Gulf" toponym proposed).

"The largest scale fuel dumping occurred on September 11, 2001, when many internatio­nal flights were refused American airspace entry due to numerous hijacking incidents. Many of these internatio­nal flights were fueled for travel well into the American interior. Many such flights were diverted into Canadian airspace, Newfoundla­nd specifical­ly, or instructed to return to their point of origin. For those mid-flight aircraft unable to land safely due to excessive fuel weight, dumping became necessary.­"  – Wikipedia

To turn it on its head, regular fuel dumping? Can it be stopped?”
