  • Why the extra detail in the simulated accident?

    I was looking through the documentation being used for a planned simulated crash of a bizjet into the carpark of the NRO building in Washington on the 11th of September 2001. (NRO Exercise)

    The document includes background information on the fictitious flight including a mocked-up CVR transcript of the last few minutes of the flight. (The plane in question is a Learjet which suffers an explosive engine failure shortly after takeoff).

    What puzzles me is that the exercise is clearly an evacuation drill, not a crash investigation drill, the information I've mentioned is extraneous to what is being attempted.

    Any ideas (not conspiracy related) as to why this was done?
