So the length of a wing is 52.64 feet (rounded). From the centerline of the fuselage to the center of the engine is 25.667 feet at that same angle so that calculates 14 feet from edge of plane to center engine and 38 feet (rounded) from wing tip to center line engine. Now the outside columns are 3.33 feet center to center and 9 columns would be 30 feet. Now the engine will impact the building at the same angle and this calculates to 32 feet. right were it should impact the building as the image you presented shows. So you are wrong in your assertion that the ninth column is "no where near the engine" Tell that to Purdue and the fellas at MIT. __________________ www.yankee451.com www.911crashtest.org Last edited by yankee451; 1st January 2020 at 12:00 PM.

You saw it on television, that's why you believe what you believe.

From page 34: https://911crashtest.org/wp-content/...t-Impact-1.pdf Obviously from the diagram as the plane was not perpendicular to the face of the building when it hit, as the videos from the south side demonstrate. But yes the damage in the videos is exactly as it should have been, the math overturns your eyesight. You don't accept those facts as they negate your belief. It is no use presenting facts that are in concert with the damage. Unless you come up with some evidence that disproves the damage other than your belief, I'm done with you.

 1st January 2020, 01:26 PM #174 JSanderO Illuminator     Join Date: Mar 2013 Location: nyc Posts: 3,089 From my perspective all of the work presented to explain or model/simulate the collapse events at the WTC are at best "educated guesses". I think all probably have nailed some of the elements but none get it all exactly as it went down. So what? All these "models" show is that it is completely reasonable for the plane to have been the initiating event leading to the collapse of the towers. Many people want/expect a micro second and millimeter precise explanation of each collapse. While theoretically possible. It would serve no practical purpose. People wanted to know how it was possible for the buildings to collapse first and foremost. The work done demonstrates this. Probably all the attempts are flawed or incomplete or somewhat inaccurate. How could they be anything else? How is it possible to reproduce or simulate these events to 100% fidelity? Why is that necessary? What you don't want is making up stuff and fooling with the laws of physics. Why resort to crazy stuff when the actual stuff can do what we saw? __________________ So many idiots and so little time.

Presumably the impact of the nose would cause velocity decrease as well as crushing or the nose etc. It probably had enough kinetic energy to punch through the facade. I am not sure I understand why the wings structures would fold back. Intuitive to my thinking is the plane's entire front profile would impact the building. If the impact slowed the fuselage why would the wings fold back? If anything they might maintain their velocity as the fuselage is crushed??? What is the structural design where the wings are? I would think (but I don't know) that wings are not simply bolted the the fuselage. Please explain. Your problem is simply the ratio of mass and area that is being impacted by it. In the case of fuselage you have a huge mass hitting a small area containing the decelerating components. The kinetic energy is concentrated in that small area resulting in a huge force from its deceleration. In the case of the wings the area is much lager and the force created by dissipating of the kinetic energy is distributed over it, resulting in smaller force over unit of area - pressure, if you wish. For that reason the wings are not able to follow the fuselage at the same speed penetrating the building material.
 1st January 2020, 03:57 PM #178 Jack by the hedge Safely Ignored     Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 10,977 It seems that yankee451's problem with a plane having made the plane shaped hole is principally that the damage due to the left wing appears in his chosen photo to indicate that the impacting object was moving to the right as it struck, and didn't hit the building square on. Since the plane didn't hit the building square on but at an angle aiming to the right, I'm wondering why he thinks that is a problem at all. His next objection appears to be his "oops" feature: There's a hole which suggests a harder or heavier part hit there, some way outboard of the port engine. Without knowing how various structures are placed in the wing, I have no idea what part might have hit there, but since I don't assume the wing was a featureless, amorphous structure internally, it seems a bit premature to assign it an "oops" unless yankee451 already knows the layout of the 767's wing structure. If he does have this information, I have yet to see him reveal it. Still, his ambitious plans include the purchase of a 767 wing for destructive testing purposes so he may yet gain first hand knowledge of which parts fit where. We must hope he'll share his findings.

There are dozens of entirely plausible explanations.

As one of the photographers paid to pose as an amateur for 9/11, I take it very seriously. That's why I will never talk about it to anyone who isn't in on the conspiracy. What's that you say, I just did? But of course you know better. I know that you are in on it to too. That's why you keep presenting 'evidence' so full of holes that a child could see through it - to discredit the 9/11 truth movement and make sure nobody bothers to look at the real evidence - which irrefutably proves it was an inside job. But this a vast conspiracy - much vaster than a mere 10 to 50 thousand crisis actors. Current estimates put the number of people 'in on it' at ~35 million worldwide, with more joining the conspiracy every day. And not just since 9/11, but before it too. The planning took years, centuries even. You know that bit in the Bible where Jesus says "I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."?

The JASSM has a wingspan of 2.7m, meaning that the body of the missile could pass through a window, leaving only the flimsy (compared to an airliner) alloy wings to damage the columns. So, each missile would need to strike a column exactly head-on and you'd need one missile per column. To cause the observed damage you'd need a swarm of them, but they'd have to strike at different times to avoid colliding with each other while in flight. You haven't thought this through, have you?

Do over! Not only would you need a swarm, but each missile would have to be precisely aimed to mimic the slant angle of the two airliners wings, and a larger missile for the engines holes, and even larger one for the fuselage holes. Also, JASSM (more correctly the AGM-158) is designed to take out surface targets. Its equipped with a 450 kg warhead containing about 100kg of AFX-757 explosive. It has a contact fuse design so that the blast force is lateral. The warhead contains nowhere near enough explosive to make the Shanksville crater... not even close. Also, the AGM-158 casing is constructed from composite materials... so how is it that no remnants of composite materials and no high-explosive residues were found at the Shanksville site, yet human remains, aluminium and aircraft parts specifically identified as coming from N591UA, a Boeing 757-222 were found there. Flight 93 crashed at 10:02 am. First responders started arriving at the scene from around 10:07 am. Five minutes is nowhere near enough time for the sooper seekrit fake-squad to 1. Get to the burning crash site 2. Find and remove all the evidence of the AGM-158's composites and explosives residues from the scene 3. Plant aircraft wreckage and human remains 4. Get away before the first responders see them These twoofer idiots just do not even bother to think about the practical realities of what would need to be done to make their harebrained, bat-**** crazy theories into reality. __________________ I want to thank the 126 Republican Congress members for providing a convenient and well organized list for the mid-terms. - Fred Wellman (Senior VA Advisor to The Lincoln Project) If you don't like my posts, my opinions, or my directness then put me on your ignore list.

Debating them is a waste of time but you have been "schooled". Have decency and humility and admit you were wrong. The so called official story may not be 100% correct / accurate because there were no transducers and so to monitor the buildings and thoroughly. Educated guess were used. This is pretty much what forensic science does to reconstruct a disaster. And not only that... who could possibly engineer and stage what we witnessed... such that it looked like a disaster no one has ever seen? Note how much effort has gone into all the post event study and it still impossible to faithfully simulate the event with 100% accuracy. Your work is not productive. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem. __________________ So many idiots and so little time.

I elaborated a bit on the energy comparison: 100 kg of AFX releases about 500 MJ of energy upon explosion. A fully loaded B767 travelling at cruising speed according to basic formula E=1/2mv^ carries about 5,000 MJ. If you dissipate this energy over just a few meters of stopping distance, the effect will very much resemble an explosion - explosion of about 10 of the said warheads. That gives us some perspective :-). And this doesn't include the power of a substantial amount of fuel that has been atomised by impact, mixed with air and combusted immediately in explosive manner. Note, the numbers are VERY approximate and the above is intended to give just a rough idea what we are dealing with here. Last edited by curious cat; 2nd January 2020 at 04:51 AM.

Deferring to some expert that you consider smarter than you, is your prerogative, but ignoring the evidence is not an option. And Steven E. Jones proved you wrong in 2008 yet here we are again, ps the reason a water Jet cuts steel is because two physical paritcles can not occupy the same place at the same time. It's a very simple Physics priciple one particle the particle with lower energy Has to give way to the particle with higher energy. Hardness friction and superheating do to impact forces all play a role. As I said This was all debunked By Dr.Steven E. Jones in 2008. Oh yes Jones did give caculations. I see no reason to continue the discussion in 2020.
