  washingtonpost.com: Mysterious Trip to Flight 77 Cockpit
Hanjour's abrupt transformation in the early 1990s is one of many tantalizing, if inconclusive, clues that only hint at why a decade later, authorities believe, Hanjour was in the cockpit when American Airlines Flight 77 struck the Pentagon, killing 184 victims.
Hanjour, who was 29 when he died, spent tens of thousands of dollars on pilot training but is not known to have held a job.
Hanjour, in fact, had piled up hundreds of hours of pilot training, but months before the attacks had failed to earn a rating to fly a Boeing 737 (the hijacked plane was a 757).

Hani Hanjour, the hijacker who is believed to have piloted American Airlines Flight 77 that struck the Pentagon, conducted test runs in careful preparation for the final attack.
Hanjour's flights were disclosed to U.S. interrogators by what one source identified as a "senior detainee."

Hanjour conducting these practice target acquisition flights is seen as just another layer of preparation.

It appears that Hanjour was the only applicant of the 15 who was initially refused — although this is not entirely clear, because the consular officers did not always circle "Issued" or "Refused" (as required by law) on the other forms.
On the subsequent application filed two weeks later, Hanjour was armed with all the right answers.
On the second go-round, Hanjour applied for a twelve-month student visa, and changed the purpose of the visit to "study" and the desired length of stay to a more appropriate "one year." But so many changes, all of which smoothed out rough spots on the original application, should have troubled the consular officer.

 Killtown's:  Did Flight 77 really crash into the Pentagon? - The alleged hijackers...
Hanjour, who investigators contend piloted the airliner that crashed into the Pentagon, was reported to the aviation agency in February 2001 after instructors at his flight school in Phoenix had found his piloting skills so shoddy and his grasp of English so inadequate that they questioned whether his pilot's license was genuine.
Hanjour may have lived in Phoenix, Ariz., and San Diego, Calif. Federal Aviation Administration records show a Hani Hanjour as receiving a commercial pilot's license in 1999 and listing a post office box in Saudi Arabia as his address.
