It is possible that the plan was to allow the two planes to make the attack on the WTC, but because the target of Flight 93 was unacceptable to the junta (a nuclear power plant, perhaps), shoot it down. If undiscovered, Flight 93 could have served as the Pentagon patsy plane. There are lots of mountains in northern Pennsylvania where such an operation could be hidden. Once Flight 93 was shot down in southern Pennsylvania, in an area with sufficient population that the crash was noticed, another plane had to be shot down secretly to assume the role of the Pentagon patsy plane. Flight 77 was chosen because it had the proper characteristics (departed at the right time from an appropriate airport before the airports closed and headed for the west coast with lots of fuel). It may well be that the terrorists had control of only three planes.
