9/11 mystery jet plane was a military doomsday plane

Just before 10 am on the morning of September 11, 2001, a mystery aircraft appeared in restricted airspace over the White House. There has never been an official explanation for this incident.

So it had provided fuel to the rumors of a fourth hijacked plane headed for Washington DC.

CNN has now learned from two government sources that the 9/11 mystery plane was a military aircraft and has determined that the blurry image on video appears to match photos of the Air Force's E-4B (explained here on Wikipedia). It was a specially modified Boeing 747 with a communications pod behind the cockpit.

"The E-4B is a state of the art flying command post," CNN explained, "built and equipped for one reason -- to keep the government running no matter what, even in the event of a nuclear war, the reason it was nicknamed the 'doomsday plane' during the Cold War."

9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton told CNN he was aware of the incident but it was not so important to add it to the report.

The plane was previously identified as the E-4B a year ago by one researcher on a forumLoose Change. associated with the 9/11-conspiracy film,

But despite of identifying the plane, a mystery is still there. Why it was there at that time? A coincidence?

The following video is from CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, broadcast on September 12 on this 9/11 mystery plane.
