Woods took a flight from Boston to Los Angeles the August before the World Trade Center attacks. The other people in first class with him included four men “of Middle Eastern appearance” who acted very strangely. During the entire cross-country flight none of them had anything to eat or drink, nor did they read or sleep. They only sat upright in their seats, occasionally conversing with each other in low tones.
Woods mentioned what he had noticed to a flight attendant, “who shrugged it off.” Arriving in Los Angeles, Woods told airport authorities, but they “seemed unwilling to become involved.”
The attacks of 9/11 occurred and suddenly the FBI are interested. They showed up at his door very early on 10/11/2001.
Woods identified two of the men he saw as hijackers who took part in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and that he “unofficially” heard through other sources that all four men he observed were indeed involved with the airline hijackings on 11 September 2001:
Interestingly, Woods is not the only famous actor to have been on a dry run flight
Rob Lowe told a chilling story on The View about how he learned he was actually on one of the “dry run” flights with all of the 9/11 hijackers just days before the terrorist attacks. It was while filming The West Wing that he was on the American Airlines Flight 77 from Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles — the flight that eventually was crashed into the Pentagon. Lowe says he remembers nothing abnormal about the flight and didn’t think of it again until a year and a half later when he was tapped to be deposed for the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, who was eventually convicted for helping plot the attacks.
