I notice the original video linked by CE is no longer active, so for reference here is Mineta's testimony.

I was going to save this for the book, but I guess I really need to get some feedback since the "ramifications are obvious". If this has been discussed already and I missed it, then my bad.

Timeline for AAL77 based on radar to correlate with Mineta's testimony.

9:26 - AAL77 was 50 nautical miles out from DC
9:30 - 30 nautical miles out
9:33 - 10 nautical miles out

If this is what Mineta was talking about, then the question to the VP would be after this at some point.

Here are the notes from a Secret Service log done for the 911 Commission and recently released by NARA.

I hate to say it, but at first glance this seems to confirm Mineta's account that the plane in question was AAL77.
