(Between 8:42 a.m. and 8:46 a.m.) September 11, 2001: Hijackers Take Over Flight 175Edit
in a template
The Commission describes that the hijackers
“used knives (as reported by two passengers(Peter Hanson and[who?] ) and a flight attendant[who?]), Mace (reported by Peter Hanson), and the threat of a bomb (also reported by Hanson). They stabbed members of the flight crew (reported by a flight attendant and one passenger). Both pilots had been killed (reported by one flight attendant).”
These witness accounts come from phone calls made from the rear of the plane, from passengers who’d been assigned seats in the front or middle of the cabin. According to the Commission, this is “a sign that passengers and perhaps crew [are] moved to the back of the aircraft.” 
An unnamed employee at the FAA’s Boston Center later says the hijacking occurs when Flight 175 is above Albany, NY, about 140 miles north of New York City.The first “operational evidence” that something is wrong is at 8:47, when Flight 175’s transponder code changes twice within a minute [see 1].
