I dont know if it has been covered by previous posts?

What about the autopilot, and who was pilot flying before the hijacking ?

It seems that autopilot "R" remains engaded during the first turn toward the Pentagon, just after the last radio transmission. If an unexperienced pilot or hijacker takes over controls of an airliner, the first thing I expect to happen is an "Autopilot Disconnect Warning" (on FDR and Voice Recorder) but if he does the turn towards the target by autopilot, this requires far more system knowledege than doing the turn with "stick and rudder".
If you just turn the control column in the direction you intend to fly, the autopilot disconnects.

Who was pilot flying before the hijacking, seems to be the copilot.(R autopilot engaged after T/O)?

Whats AA policy Captain flying AP L, F/O flying AP R?

I just felt the somethings not right feeling while watching your presentation !!
