|Views from underneath the plane that crashed into WTC 2 reveal a 20m. long cylinder about 30 cm. in diameter. |
Those are some very precise inferences from a streak that registers
only a few pixels wide.
(The same "finding"
is prominently featured on several pages, such as
in an apparent effort to maximize the mileage from this discrediting idea.)
The reader who examines the shape of the underside of a 767 --
or similar aircraft, such as a 777 --
will see that the streaks under the fuselage are readily explained
as specular reflections of the low morning sun,
interrupted in the middle by the torsion box bulge.
(The torsion box is the structure attaching the wings to the fuselage.)
There were four flights that went missing on 9/11:
- American Airlines Flight 11; A Boeing 767-223ER flying from Boston to Los Angeles
([ N334AA]), alleged to have crashed into the North Tower.
We do not know the flight paths after they turned off the transponders:
the US Military has classified that all data.
In fact, we know less about these flights that we might think:
- Flight77 is said to have crashed in the PentagonAttack, but
we know with certainty it did not. Where it went is unknown.
provide any scenarios that might make sense of the disappearance of Flight 77.
- Flight 11 is said to have hit the north tower, WTC 1. But the
plane that hit the north tower appears to been much smaller than a Boeing
(see Sept11Videos), and an engine found in the TwinTowers debris
is too small: see our page WTCPlaneEngine.
The blurry flying object in the Naudet Brother's video of the
North Tower crash is the correct size for a 767-200.
The impact damage matches the profile of a 767-200 down to the
engine pods, wingtips, and tail.
The engine parts that landed on the street
were also the correct size for 767 engines.
- Flight 175 is said to have hit the south tower, WTC 2. But the
plane that hits the south tower has a 20m. long cylinder about 30
cm. in diameter underneath. The cylinder opens at the last moment
before impact and ejects something; see Sept11Videos. It is
unlikely UA 175 had such a cylinder.
It is unlikely the plane had such a cylinder.
This claim about the 20m X 30cm cylinder is repeated at least
6 times on 9/11 Review, leading both this and the
The prominence of this claim may be a measure of its
potency as a
is said to have crashed just north of the Somerset County
Airport, about 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, 124 miles or
15 minutes from Washington DC. We have no reason to doubt that, but
it may not be the only plane whose debris came down there.
If more than one plane crashed there, it means
that responders to the crash were in on the scam.
More people "in the know" means less containability.
