Airspace on 9/11 was not conducted in accord with preexisting training and protocols. It was improvised by civilians who had never handled a hijacked aircraft that attempted to disappear, and by a military unprepared for the transformation of commercial aircraft into weapons of mass destruction. As it turned out, the NEADS air defenders had nine minutes’ notice on the first hijacked plane, no advance notice on the second, no advance notice on the third, and no advance notice on the fourth.

The 9/11 Commission noted that the fire drills conducted in the WTC were not comprehensive enough to address such a massive fire as that caused by the aircraft on 9/11, and that tenants were never advised that a roof rescue was not part of the evacuation plan. During evacuation drills, tenants were advised to evacuate only a few floors below the fire. Apparently, WTC tenants were not the only individuals not informed of the lack of a roof rescue contingency.
