9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes

Most active military monitors in the Northeast have heard of NORAD's NEADS (Northeast Air Defense Sector located at Griffiss AFB, NY), callsign Huntress. If you think you are hearing all the juicy stuff on your scanner, think again. During the 9/11 terror attack, NEADS played a pivotal role in the US response to the attack.

Now, in an exclusive Vanity Fair article at the magazine's online website, you can hear excerpts from over 30 hours of never released tapes from the control room of NORAD's northeast headquarters. Read the transcripts, hear the chilling words, and read the story of 9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes. Read and listen to the stuff you wouldn't hear on your scanner.

Amd a tip of the MT-Milcom ballcap to Bruce Conklin for the heads up.
