The Forgotten: The Flight Crews of 9/11 The Very First Responders by Barbara Dorger available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Xlibris. In my 2004 book, Turbulent Skies, I wrote, Someday I will write about the incredible actions of the flight crews on the morning of September 11, 2001. In my first year of writing, as I researched and wrote, my body would chill, and I would cry. Once an article was finished, I could hardly get up out of my chair. I truly felt like I was on the planes with the crews. I knew if I was to continue, I had to control all that emotion. The reader will learn how the air traffic controllers cleared the skies, how Canada responded by handling all the incoming international flights, and how the failures of the FAA, the FBI, the CIA, and the airlines allowed this attack to take place. I also realized how it might have been prevented if the crews had been properly trained and informed. The book further examines how political forces changed the priorities for counter terrorism, and also impeded the examination of how the attacks could happen. The aftermath of the attack, and how it forever changed the airline profession and added significant restrictions on traveling public.
