Member of"9-11/The 19 Hijackers"
One of the "19 hijackers" whose ID reportedly survived the impact of the plane better than its black box.

Salem al-Hazmi (also transliterated as Alhazmi) was one of the five alleged hijackers of American Airlines Flight 77 as part of the September 11 attacks.


The 9/11 Commission report declared that Salem al-Hazmi (like Satam al-Suqami) was "unconcerned with religion and, contrary to Islamic law, [was] known to drink alcohol."[1]

Between September 2 and September 6, 2001, about a week before the attacks, the five alleged hijackers attended Gold's Gym in Greenbelt, Maryland, where, reportedly, they were "awkwardly lifting weights and using resistance machines." [2] Gold's Gym regional manager Spero Courtis has described, "They seemed not to really know what they were doing." [3] According to Gene LaMott, the CEO of Gold's Gym International Inc.: "They weren't on the masculine side. They looked like students from the university." [4]

The al-Hazmi brothers' ID's were found in the rubble at the Pentagon, and appeared genuine upon examination.[5]
