Flight attendant Amy Sweeney of Flight 11 has been on the phone with her friend and American Airlines flight services manager Michael Woodward, describing what’s been going on. She was the second of the attendants on the flight to make a call, and has been on the phone since 8:25 AM. Her phone call ends with the following exchange.
SWEENEY: Something is wrong. We are in a rapid descent… we are all over the place.
WOODWARD: Look out the window. Can you see where you are? [paraphrase]
SWEENEY: I see the water. I see the buildings. I see buildings.
SWEENEY: Oh my God!
SWEENEY: We are flying low. We are flying very, very low. We are flying way too low.
SWEENEY: Oh my God, we are way too low.
These are Sweeney’s last words.
Betty Ong is still on the phone with Nydia Gonzalez. Her call also ends at this time.
ONG: Pray for us. Pray for us.
<line goes dead>
GONZALES: I think we might have lost her.
Still nothing in the media. Four more minutes.
