9/11 Attacks: Bin Laden inspired by Egyptian Pilot who crashed into Sea - New reports

According to new reports, Osama Bin Laden was inspired to carry out the 9/11 deadly terrorist attacks on the World trade centre by Egyptian  pilot, Gameel Al-Batouti, who crashed EgyptAir Flight 990 into the Atlantic ocean in murder-suicide on October 31, 1999, killing all 217 people aboard, including 100 Americans.

The experienced pilot, 59, who was flying from Los Angeles to Cairo, overrode the flight's autopilot and sent the plane nosediving into the Atlantic Ocean. While terrorism was considered as a possible motive, investigators found he had been facing disciplinary issues at work and was about to be banned from flying transatlantic routes.
When Bin Laden heard the news of Al-Batouti murder-suicide, he said: 'Why didn't he crash into a building?'.

Two years later, precisely September 11, 2001, his suicide attackers carried out the single deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil by flying two American airliners into the World Trade Centre.

Two more planes were hijacked, one of which struck the Pentagon, while the other crashed into a field after passengers overcame the terrorists. In total, almost 3,000 people were killed.

The idea was formed in its entirety when bin Laden later met with the attack's principal architect, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who had been independently considering hijacking U.S. planes. Mohammed was captured in Pakistan in 2003 and is currently serving terms in Guatanamo Bay
