    For the Pentagon there are lots of pictures, just none that are suitable for framing. The plane was traveling app. 500mph which is 703fps. The cameras outside the Pentagon were not high speed-high definition type cameras and not designed or intended to capture images of things moving at that speed. As much and the producers of CSI and NCIS would like us to think, every inch of the US is not monitored by surveillance cameras, even the Pentagon is/was lacking in some spots.
    Yes, and there was one frame on that video that showed a blurred image of the front of the airliner just before it hit the Pentagon. You could clearly see that it was an airliner.

    What about building 7? Are you saying that the terrorist just got lucky with that building too? Building 7 was only 40 something stories, but came down with the same "controlled demolition" as buildings 1 and 2. News teams made a video of the collapse of 7 after reports came in that some diesel storage tanks had caught fire. The fire was mostly contained, yet firefighters were instructed to leave the building, and shortly after everyone was clear, it came down. The building housed all the legal documents for the Lehman Brothers financial crisis. Follow the money. The guy that owned the management company controlling the world trade center, just months before the attack, took out a double indemnity clause on his insurance that pays double if the buildings were destroyed as a result of a "terrorist act". Instead of having to pay 11 billion to remove the asbestos from the buildings, he walked away with 200 billion (for each tower)in insurance money, and the government cleaned it up for him. Follow the money.

    I might have been wrong about no other building being built that way. As I understand it, the WTC was build using a central core and the outside walls of the structure to support the weight of the floors, with no columns between them. I think tis is the basic design used on the new WTC except the central core is MUCH stronger (and it may have more support columns between the floors). My understanding is that both the Empire State Building and the Sears Tower are built differently. However, it was very innovative at the time.

  5. And what is your structural engineering viewpoint on the collapse of building 7????

    Good series of articles on how much Larry Silverstein walked away with from the insurance compamies.

    The World Trade Center Towers collapse as an Enormous Insurance Scam.
