Appearing on "The View" on Wednesday, actor Rob Lowe talked about being on a dry-run flight for the Sept. 11 hijackers without realizing it.

It was a week and a half before the attacks, and Lowe was flying from Washington to Los Angeles.

He says he didn't notice anything unusual, but later found out from the Maryland attorney general that the hijackers were on the plane making a practice run.
