See the official FBI page on the hijackers



American Airlines Flight 11
Boston to Los Angeles
Struck the north tower of the World Trade Center

Waleed Alshehri, 25

He lived in Daytona Beach, Fla., and may also have lived in Hollywood, Fla.
 

Wail Alshehri, 28
He may have lived in Hollywood, Fla., and Newton, Mass. He also lived in Boynton Beach, Fla.
 

Mohammad Atta, 33
Rented a car at Logan Airport Alamo and drove to Maine. Then flew down from Portland, Maine, early Tuesday before connecting on Flight 11.

Attis is from United Arab Emirates. Born in the United Arab Emirates and is believed to be the cousin of suspected United Airlines Flight 175 hijacker Marwan Al-Shehhi.

Investigators say the two followed parallel paths.

Atta received pilot training at Huffman Aviation in Venice Fla., and took two three-hour courses at SimCenter Inc. in Opa-locka, Fla., where he trained on a Boeing 727 full-motion flight simulator.

Atta lived in Venice, Coral Springs and Hollywood, Fla., and Hamburg, Germany, investigators say. He held an Egyptian driver's license.

Atta studied electrical engineering for eight years at the Technical University in Hamburg and had ties to an Islamic fundamentalist group that planned attacks on American targets, German investigators say. He and Al-Shehhi left for the United States in May.

Both went to a sports bar in Hollywood last Friday night. Atta played video games while Al-Shehhi drank with another man.

 

Abdulrahman S. Alomari, 38
Rented a car at Logan Airport Alamo and drove to Maine. Then flew down from Portland, Maine, early Tuesday before connecting on Flight 11.

Alomari lived in Vero Beach, Fla., with his wife and four school-aged children. He paid $1,400 per month in rent.

He also lived with two other men. One man, Amer M. Kamfar, was wanted for questioning, but is missing and may be armed with an AK47.

Alomari gave his landlord 30 days notice and said he would be out of the house by the end of August. Then he pushed the date back until Sept. 3 and moved out that day, telling his landlord he was going back home.

Alomari was rated as a private pilot and flight engineer, listing his address as Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, according to FAA records. He listed his previous employer as Saudi Flight Ops, which handles maintenance for Saudi Arabian Airlines at Kennedy airport in New York.

Al Suqami is from the United Arab Emirates.
 



United Airlines Flight 175

Al-Shehhi was born in the United Arab Emirates.

He ented room with Atta in Florida while they attended Huffman Aviation School in Venice, near Sarasota, on Florida's west coast, where they trained on small Cessna and Piper aircrafts.

Like his cousin Atta, Al-Shehhi received pilot training at Huffman Aviation in Venice, Fla., and took two courses at SimCenter Inc. in Opa-locka, Fla., where he also trained on a Boeing 727 flight simulator.

Al-Shehhi lived in Venice and Nokomis, Fla. He studied electrical engineering for one year at the Technical University in Hamburg and had connections to Islamic extremists. He and Atta also lived together in Hamburg.
