Jemployed by
American Airlines, Logan Airport, Boston, Massachusetts,
telephone 617-634-5307, was interviewed at his place of
employment, in the presence of Trooper! [.,
Massachusetts State Police, Middlesex county, uambndge, ...
Massachusetts. After being advised as to the purpose of the
interview and the identity of the interviewing agent, he provided
the following:

MISURACA is a ramp service/customer service manager for


American Airlines AA. He was hired in March of 1970. He
supervises an entire AA ramp of nine to eleven crew chiefs, with
one hundred to one hundred fifty employees in total. His
supervisor is ramp supervisor HOWARD CRABTREE. MISURACA is also
under midnight cabin service supervisor DAVID SARTORI
phonentic, who usually is just coming off work when MISURACA
arrives. '9/11 Law
Enforcement
On September 11, 2001, MISURACA started work at 4:00
a.m., intending to finish at 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. He had yesterday Privacy
and the day before off from work. The crew chiefs under him for
September 11, 2001, that he could remember, were:
DONNIE BENNETT chief for AA flight 11
JOHN MOULTON
DAN BOUCHARD assignment crew chief
ARTHUR ARGENZIO
DAVID DICARLO
JOE GRATIANO
JOHN GRATIANO

When MISURACA came to work on the morning of.September


11, he drove around to check security and make sure that the
crews were working. He did not recall any problems. .

The aircraft for AA flight 11 came in to Lpgan Airport


on September 11,2001, at approximately 6:06Xm., as flight 198
from San Francisco. This was a "turn-around flight," meaning the
aircraft was to be serviced and set off later 6n another flight.
Flight 11 was a non-stop to Los Angeles, departing approximately

7:45 a.m. out of gate 32 with approximately eighty three people


on board. A different flight crew, from Boston, would fly the
plane to Los Angeles. JOHN ORANOWSKI was the pilot. DONNIE
BENNETT was the crew chief for preparing flight 11, and his crew
was: ANTHONY DURANTE, a line employee, working as a flight

September 5, 2003 3:53 pm Page 1


service clerk, MANUAL SUVA, and RICK SORBELLO. BENNETTs crew's
job is to load baggage.

BENNETTs crew worked flight 198 as the first thing


that shift, unloading that flight's baggage, and loading the
baggage for flight 11. The next plane the crew worked after
flight 11 was flight 156 for London. A seperate cabin service
crew works on the passenger compartment, and checks for trash,
objects, and people remaining on the plane. The makeup of a
cabin service crew is kept to the same four or five guys, but
crews might rotate so that one might not find the same crew
servicing the same flight every day. Crews usually do not have
much mixing or transfer of people. People bid by senority for
which crew they want, usually to work for a favored supervisor.
On September 11 there were no new faces, and no employees were
missing.

Catering does a seperate sweep to clean and prepare the


plane. The catering service is SKY CHEF. SKY CHEF's morning
shift is their premium or senior shift. Everyone on this shift
has a year or more in service. They take out the old foodstuffs,
and replace it.

Baggage is handled by the baggage room, which for


aircraft of flight 11's design, loads baggage onto hardbody LD8
containers. The containers are then placed on the plane. Last
minute passenger's bags or oversize bags are put in the plane's
baggage compartment last, without being put into an LD8
.,pontaine,r-->,l^aiLLs<t3TPUight up from the mail house and freight
building. Flight 11 had some mail containers, and two mail
containers were not placed onboard because the plane was full.

Profile passengers, that match indicators for a


hazardous person, are subject to an X-ray examination of their
baggage. Once this has been done an orange dot is placed on the
luggage. If the passenger does not board the plane this baggage
is pulled from the flight. That did not happen to flight 11.
The above baggage treatment refers to checked baggage. Carry on

[PDF page 2]

SALVATORE P. MISURACA 9-11-01

luggage is treated differently.

Flight 11 was cleaned and loaded without incident.


There were no strangers, or absences of employees. Flight 11 was
locked up and ready to go at 7:40 a.m. Prior to that, at 7:30
a.m., the baggage crew received a call from passenger service.
Passenger service advised that a passenger was on board the
plane, and that they were calling to make certain that his two
bags had made it over. BENNETT said that he had the two bags,
but tt!at),he.pJiixt y/as,JQpked up and the bags would not be put
on. The bags were given to AA bag expiditer PHILIP A.
DEPASQUALE, aka ZIP. Note that passenger service usually does
not call about a bag, unless the passenger has asked to ensure
that his bags are put on the flight.

Later, MISURACA and others heard of the crash and


called regarding the two bags. DEPASQUALE had put them on flight
181 for Los Angeles. The bags were retrieved.

Flight 11 was a 767 aircraft. These have access from

September 5,2003 3:53 pm Page 2


the passenger compartment to the baggage compartment via a trap
door near the cockpit. The door is under the rug.

MISURACA has never observed a crew member pass luggage


to a passenger, and there is absolutely no access between the
passengers and their checked baggage.

It would be difficult for a stowaway to make it on


board flight 11. Particularly because it was a "turn-around"
flight, going directly on another trip after landing in Boston.
A stowaway on this flight would really need assistance from a
plane service crew member. It would be easier, but still
difficult to stowaway on a plane that sits overnight. MISURACA
notes that he is more familiar with the baggage elements of plane
servicing, than with the passenger compartment details.

MISURACA is also a ground security coordinator. As


such, he has tested the security and found frequent failings.
Security is not doing a good enough job.

Coordinator GSC, U.S. AIRWAYS USAIR, Portland International


Jetport, 1001 Westbrook Street, Portland, Maine, telephone number
207775-5210, was interviewed at her place of employment. After
being advised of the identity of the interviewing agent and the
nature of the interview, she provided the following information:

GRANEY has been employed with USAIR for approximately


twelve years. As a CSA for USAIR, GRANEVs duties include
conducting passenger check-ins, checking baggage, making seat
assignments, and issuing tickets. She performs her duties at
either the USAIR Ticket Counter or at the individual airport gates.
As a GSC, she deals with aircraft, airport, and general security
issues.

On September 11, 2001, from 5:00 AM to 1:00 PM, GRANEY


was working at the USAIR Ticket Counter. At some point in her
shift she heard of the attacks on the World Trade Center in New
York, and that one of the flights was American Airlines Flight 11
out of Logan Airport in Boston. As a GSC, she went and pulled the
passenger lists for the USAIR flights to Logan to see if any USAIR
passengers had a connection on that flight. GRANEY saw that there
were two passengers on USAIR Flight 5930 to Logan that had a
connection to American Airlines Flight 11. The two names were
MOHAMED ATTA and ABDULAZIZ ALOMARI. She also noticed the two were
scheduled to sit in First Class on American Airlines Flight 11.
GRANEY thought it was suspicious that these two passengers could
have taken a better, more direct flight then what they had
scheduled.

GRANEY observed that ATTA and ALOMARI had checked two


bags in at the USAIR Ticket Counter, and that MICHAEL TUOHEY was
the CSA who checked them in. She spoke to TUOHEY about the two
passengers, and he advised her of what he had observed. She then
contacted CHUCK SEVERANCE, USAIR Station Manager, and informed him
of what had happened and what she had discovered.

GRANEY advised that later when she saw ATTA's picture on


the news, she believed she had seen him before. She thought he may
have tried to jump seat once with USAIR, and he was in uniform
using an American Airlines pilot identification. She believed that
this happened within the last six months. She advised she searched
the USAIR jump seat paperwork to see who had gone through for June
2001, July 2001, and August 2001, but was unable to find ATTA's
name. She advised the jump seat forms are only kept for 90 days.
She became more concerned about this when she heard on the news
that some American Airlines uniforms were stolen in Italy.

GRANEY was then requested to review a photograph array


containing twelve pictures of twelve of the alleged hijackers.
GRANEY identified the picture of MOHAMED ATTA as the person she
remembered seeing prior to September 11, 2001 attempting to jump
seat a USAIR flight. She also identified the picture of MARWAN
ALSHEHHI as someone she had seen sometime at the airport ticket
counter. She identified the picture of WALEED ALSHERI as someone
who looks familiar. Both GRANEY and the interviewing agent dated
and initialed the pictures she identified.

imperative that he had to be in Los Angeles by Sunday 09/23/2001


at 10:00 p.m. VOGEL thought it was also unusual that NARAYANAN
asked for Flight 886 specifically. She said that it was unusual
because if he was so familiar with that particular flight then he
should have flown Southwest Airlines before and realized that they
had open seating at boarding and that he could not be assigned a
front row seat; further, Flight 886 always arrives in Los Angeles
at 10:50 p.m., and he had made it clear that it was imperative that
he arrive in Los Angeles before 10:00 p.m. When she indicated the
late arrival tima to him, NARAYANAN indicated that was okay, and
that he had to be on Flight 886.

Immediately after NARAYANAN'S contact with VOGEL at the


Southwest Airlines counter, she observed him go over to the United
Airlines counter two times and make some sort of contact with
United Airlines staff there.

At about 3:30 to 4:00 p.m. on that same date (Saturday,


09/22/2001), VOGEL went to go to lunch at the Portland Airport food
court at the Macheezmo Mouse on her break and she observed VINOD
NARAYANAN and the white male adult who was with him seated. The
white male adult was on a cell phone. NARAYANAN was writing in his
notebook and he took VOGEL's name, and asked her about how many
restrooms there were on the flight and if they were on front of the
aircraft or on the back of the aircraft. She advised he also
wanted to know how full the flight was and if it was going to
depart on time. NARAYANAN also told VOGEL at that time that he had
booked a flight on United Airlines; however, VOGEL went back to the
Southwest Airlines counter, checked the booking reservations, and
discovered that NARAYANAN had made a reservation at 2:14 p.m. with
Southwest Airlines.

Additipnally, on Sunday, 09/23/2001, about two hours


before the 7:25 p.m. departure of Flight 886, NARAYANAN had
canceled his reservation and transferred it to Monday, 09/24/2001.
At the time of the interview on 09/24/2001, NARAYANAN had never
actually purchased a ticket and had no-showed for that reservation.

Besides the name VINOD NARAYANAN, the only additional


information included in the reservation information was that the 9/11

VOGEL described NARAYANAN as a very dark complected Privacy

Anchorage, Alaska, from which it will be departing back to India.
For that reason, he was now able to fly out himself, and that had
caused the previous cancellations. He did not recall haying

Naheed "Robbie" Toulani and Reynaldo Galindez assisted in this
search. Together, they searched a 767, a 757 and a Super 80, which
was searched last. The Super 80 was parked at Gate 14. They were

suspicious.

might sympathize with terrorist activities. He did not notice

LYNN ANN BODE, Customer Service Trainer and Ground


Security Coordinator. United Airlines UAL, Newark International
Airport NIA, Newark, NJ, was interviewed at her place of
employment and provided the following information:

BODE has been employed by United Airlines for 23 years.


She was in the UAL Training Room in Terminal A at NIA during the
morning of 09/11/2001. As a result, she had no contact with, nor
any chance to observe, the passengers or crew of UAL Flight 93.

After the UAL employees in the terminal heard about the


crash, BODE spoke with several of the customer service personnel
who processed the flight. One gate agent, MARVIN WESTNEY, told
BODE he remembered four Arabic males who "stood out" from the other
passengers because of their Arabic-sounding names and because one
of the men asked WESTNEY if the flight would be leaving on time.
WESTNEY told BODE the men were traveling in First Class; two were
seated together and the other two were seated individually.

BODE advised there might be information about the four


males in the "selectee cards" for the flight. BODE explained that
some passengers are selected on every flight for enhanced security
scrutiny. This selection can be automatic, based on criteria set
out by the Federal Aviation Administration FAA. In addition,
customer service agents can designate passengers for selection
under certain circumstances, such as not having an identification
at check-in, mismatch between names on a passenger identification
and the passenger ticket, etc. BODE advised that her supervisor,
ANTHONY REID, had taken the cards after the crash.

I /white male, was advised of the identity of the interviewing


Agent and the nature and purpose of the interview. Forbes was
interviewed at his residence. Forbes provided the following
information:

Forbes was employed as a flight attendant with United


Airlines. He was employed with United Airlines since April of
1984.

On October 23, 2001, Forbes was a flight attendant on


United Airlines flight 1908 from Denver. Colorado, to Indianapolis,

Forbes assisted with the boarding of passengers onboard


United Airlines flight 1908. He recalled that an elderly couple
sat in seats 1C and 1D. He did not recall their names but
described them as being white and in their 60's. He thought that
the elderly male was originally assigned to seat 1B.

Forbes helped an unknown Middle Eastern male place his


carry-on luggage in the overhead bin above seat 1C. Forbes thought
the Middle Eastern male was originally assigned to seat 1C. At the
time, there was a backpack and some blankets and pillows in the
overhead bin. Forbes moved the backpack to make room for the
Middle Eastern male's carry-on luggage. Forbes also removed the
pillows and blankets from the overhead bin to make additonal room
for the carry-on luggage. As Forbes pulled out the blankets and
pillows, he heard a scraping sound coming from under the blankets
and pillows. Underneath, he found a box cutter.

Forbes gave the box cutter to the purser, Margaret Last


Name Unknown LNU. She in turn gave it to the Captain, a male,
name not recalled. The Captain contacted the Ground Security
Coordinator and the decision was made to deplane the flight.

Forbes did not know where the knife came from. He did
not think the elderly couple or the Middle Eastern male brought it
