Tin Hat Tuesday

It has been awhile since I have pulled out my trusty tin hat and dove into a little conspiracy theorem. I pulled the following story from a news source you can find on Google News, which passed over site earlier this year. I guess stories on chemtrails and government cover-ups are more newsworthy than posts on Jack Bauer.

Conspiracy Planet posts a story written by Tom Flocco which claims the plane flown into the Pentagon on 9/11 was not a 757 as reported, but a Cold War era Douglas A-3 Skywarrior as part of the plan to send us off to war. The Skywarrior was first flown in 1953 and served in Vietnam; the last of the 282 Skywarriors built were retired in 1991. Like the A-3; Douglas is not around anymore as it was bought by McDonell, which was then bought by Boeing (who makes the 757). See how it is all connected?

Douglas A-3 Skywarrior

I have a couple of questions about this claim:
1) What happened to Barbara Olson and the others who died on 9/11 aboard American Airlines Flight 77?
2) Why did the government (who has thousands of planes at their disposal) choose an aged bomber which has been out of production since the Kennedy administration? Wouldn't an old warplane draw unwanted attention? I guess Elvis was more comfortable flying the A-3 than a more modern airplane.
