"Certainly, this combination of symbolsis likely to make even the most cynical readers do a double take when they first observeit. However, a minimal amount of research reveals that the Wingdings claim is based on anoutrageous lie and therefore has no validity what so ever. None of the planes involved inthe 9/11 attacks had the flight number "Q33 NY". The flight numbers of the planes thatcrashed into the Twin Towers were in fact "11" and "175". Clearly, someone has simplymade up this supposed flight number in an attempt to make the spurious claim seem valid.In an absurd twist, the current version of the hoax actually contradicts itself. One partof the message states, "The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flightnumber 11." Later in the same message it states "Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is theflight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers."
Some haveclaimed that "Q33 NY" was actually the tail or registration number of one of the planes.However, this is also untrue. The actual tail number of Flight 11 was "N334AA". Nor didany of the other hijacked aircraft have the registration number "Q33 NY" (see Data Tablebelow). Searches of the Federal Aviation Administration website afforded no results for"Q33 NY". In fact, most civil aircraft registrations in the United States start with theletter "N" and nationality and registration markings are commonly referred to as"N-Numbers""
