Any videos of WTC 7's Collapse from the south?

All angles I've seen of WTC 7's collapse are only from the north side. This neither proves or disproves the NIST report which shows the collapse from the south side which looked like this.



If anyone has a video or a picture of the building's collapse form the south side please show it. It would certainly put my mind at ease.

Do you mean taken from where the debris from the twin towers was located and had broken the ground into the basement levels, making the area inaccessible? No, there's no video shot from there, not sure why.

It's an interesting question why no cameras were positioned south of the WTC at that time.

I'd guess it has much to with two rather obvious factors:
  • There is so much more Manhattan to the north - all the media companies with there fixed TV cameras overlooking the city were to the north
  • Evactuation of the area around the WTC was done mostly to the north. The main staging areas of the emergency response services were to the north (we have about three videos from the North-West, where plenty of FDNY and medical rescue vehicles were lined up).

I suspect that getting south of the WTC was impossible after quite early in the AM. The west side was clearly closed off... and that left Broadway a few blocks to the east. Chambers was most likely also closed. Battery tunnel entrance is just south of the WTC and so that would not be a way to get south of the Trade center. It was likely closed in bound. People were escaping lower Manhatten.

Staten Island Ferry??? It was taking people off the island but one would have to get to SI to get to lower Manhattan.

FDR drive would be an option from uptown if it wasn't clogged up.

Very few and ify options to get south of the WTC site....

There's several reasons why there was no videos or stills from the south as some have already said. Here's a couple more.

1. Cameras were nowhere near as prolific in 2001 as they are now. Sure they were popular but the majority of the population wasn't carrying one in their pocket back then.

2. The smoke plume drifted toward the south. Not exactly optimal conditions for shooting video, even if a camera made it into the disaster area pre-collapse. At least one news crew did just that, by the way. They were able to shoot only from the north side on Barclay Street.



Cropped from this image, spoiler tagged because of image bigness.

^ the "smoke plume", though, is not coming from WTC7, but from WTC6.

And drifted south.

ETA: That's the majority of the destroyed Trade Center burning along with WTC 7, not just WTC 6.

That's the Terence Hill rule for fires: Just as the villains in the bar brawls walked up to Terence Hill one by one, to get knocked out one by one, well-beaved fires know to burn in only one building at a time. Hence, when you show us that WTC6 was burning, we know for a universal fact that of course WTC7 could not possibly have burned at the same time.

Glad I watched my Terence Hill movied in the 70s!

Dude, this is the immediate aftermath of the towers collapsing and has nothing to do with the situation AJM and I were posting about. Go back to bed.

Nope. The photo I posted was taken in the afternoon. Check the shadows - the sun was towards the west.

I made a map showing the camera locations for most of the 25 video cameras that caught the WTC 7 event: http://www.911conspiracy.tv/7_WTC.html#map

None to the south.

Anyone familiar with the battery would understand why there would not be many cameras professional or amateur down there with a good "sight line" to the WTC.

It should be obvious to all but the thickest of you by now. The thermite planting ninjas escaped detection by rappelling down the south face of WTC 7 under the cover of thick smoke and lack of cameras.

We need a new investigation.

That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! Of all the lame-brained, lack-of-thought expulsions from someone's facial orifice, that's got to be the most lack-witted in existence!

Everyone knows ninjas don't do thermite!

It was commandos.

Swarms of superintelligent, suicidal jellyfish. They evaporate and leave no identifyable trace in the rubble.

Imagine the DNA analyser who finds jellyfish DNA - who in their right mind would publish that? They'd be institutionalized!


Or perhaps lean mean flounders? After they exploded the thermites, they jumped out the towers, fluttered in the wind disguising as paper, and made it to the Hudson River to escape.

That was the plot of my third (unpublished) novel.

With global warming we're seeing the acidification of the oceans, so I figured that extra hydrogen had to go somewhere. Why not jellyfish, whose body structure, and the neurotoxin of their venom is altered by the new ocean chemistry? From there I gave them all kinds of destructive powers centered around their ability to fill their bodies with hydrogen to float into the air and fly into San Francisco where they daisy-chain their bodies from powerlines onto buildings to burn the place to the ground when the gas ignites.

It was a lot of fun.
