Comment: The picture shows molten metal spitting out down the building. The yellow and white tones in the fire show the temperature was extraordinarily high and they are with molten metal. This shows ordnance was present. Probably DU. It was probably a DU bomb that punched a hole in the building and allowed the plane to enter neatly and land wholly inside the building.
Comment: The same colors are showing in this picture of molten metal spilling down the side of the building.
Comment: Color chart showing the different temperatures associated with different colors of flame, fire.
Nuclear bunker buster
Fig. 2 The Pentagon has a growing collection of high precision conventional weapons capable of defeating hardened targets. In this sled-driven test, the GBU-28 laser guided bomb with its improved BLU-113 warhead penetrates several meters of reinforced concrete.
Comment: This kind of bunker buster either using DU or using a nuclear warhead was used to punch a hole in the walls of the WTC Twin Towers. Note how the bunker buster can be precision-guided into the target. The picture shows a concrete barrier several meters thick being penetrated. The WTC walls were made of steel and glass. They formed a kind of mesh.
Comment: This picture shows a press vehicle that was hit by a missile fired from an Israeli UAV during the Lebanon-Israel war in 2006. The precision of the hit is evident in this picture. It is with the same precision that the WTC towers were hit. The missiles that penetrated the walls of the WTC towers had special electronic fuzes that allowed for a high degree of precision in the firing of the missiles with regards to timing and location.
Evidence of a bomb on the plane – molten metal
VIDEO: Molten metal coming down the side of the tower
Comment: This video shows the spilling out of molten metal from the building. This indicates that ordnance was used that raised the temperature so high that metal melted. Later in the video as the South Tower explodes you have a good view of various mushroom clouds that develop during the different phases of the explosion.
Comment: I am not sure what this picture is supposed to be showing. Maybe I included it to show the extent of the fire shortly before the tower exploded. There were only small isolated pockets of fire.
Plane parts crashing down heard in this video
Comment: I can’t download the video. I think this video was included to show that there were planes that crashed into the towers unlike what many no plane theorists claim. Or the crash can be the sound of the missile firing into the building.
Comment: This shows the entry hole made by the plane. You can also make out Edna Cintron standing on the right of the picture holding an arm up.
The no-plane theory examined
Comment: This is an engine part of one of the planes.
Caption: The photograph on the left shows a portion of Flight 175’s engine at the corner of Church and Murray Streets. The idea that this assembly, which is about three feet in diameter, is too small to be from a 767 is unfounded. Boeing 767s use high-bypass turbofan engines such as General Electric CF6-80, the Pratt & Whitney PW4062, or the Rolls-Royce RB211. Such engines have a fan measuring nearly 10 feet in diameter, but their core, containing the high-pressure turbines, compressor, and combustion chamber, is about a third of that diameter.
Did this concrete barrier crumble into a dust heap after a short while? No, it didn’t.
Comment: More proof that there were planes that crashed into the buildings and they weren’t “phantom” planes.
Purdue simulation of plane crash (doesn’t show bomb as a cause)
VIDEO: Purdue simulation of WTC plane crash
Comment: This simulation doesn’t take into account the fact that aluminium parts of the plane would not have sliced through the thick steel perimeter of the WTC tower like they do in the simulation.
The thin aluminum skin of the plane tore through the thicknesses of the steel box columns that made up the exterior and the core like a knife slicing through butter according to FEMA.
Aluminum skin was able to crash through the steel column “netting”
Comment: Construction of one of the WTC twin towers. Note the steel “netting”.
Comment: It is hard to believe that the aluminium wings and parts of the planes sliced through the thick steel spandrels and box columns that made up the perimeter of the WTC towers.
Comment: This diagram shows the thicknesses of the columns and spandrels of the sections that made up the perimeter of the WTC Twin Tower buildings. The steel columns were typically spaced 3’4″ apart. The box columns were typically about 1 foot square in cross-section.
Comment: Another picture of the fireball seen on impact with the plane with the tower. The fireball has this appearance because ordnance was used to punch an entry hall into the perimeter and also destroy the aircraft. In the fireball, the aircraft has been consumed by an explosion shortly after it had impacted the building. This accounts for the sprays of molten metal ejecting downwards from the fireball. The molten metal comprises the aluminium of the plane as well as the metal of the destroyed perimeter wall of the tower.
The Purdue simulation doesn’t show the extensive fireballs OUTSIDE the tower that caused most of the disintegration of the plane. This photo shows the external fireballs. In the pictures you can see the shower of silvery confetti-like debris: this is the aluminium skin of the plane raining down as well as the steel columns vaporized by the ordnance.
Simulation of the aluminum-skinned plane crashing into the exterior wall.
Comment: The simulation makes it look like the plane slipped into the building. In reality, the plane was mostly destroyed by the ordnance that was exploded very shortly after the point of impact of the plane with the building. It was important from the perpetrators’ point of view that the planes be destroyed as much as possible as the planes contained valuable clues to investigators.
WTC crash caught by tourist
VIDEO: Czech catches Flight 11 crashing into WTC1
Comment: This video shows the fireballs and mushroom cloud that forms after the ordnance is exploded prior to the plane’s entry and after it has entered the tower. If the fireballs were from the jet fuel on the planes, it must have been mostly consumed by the fireball and it doesn’t make sense that there was significant part of the jet fuel left after this explosion and fireballs to then melt steel columns as the government claims.
Judicial Watch was able to get the Pentagon security camera videos only by suing the government under the Freedom of Information Act the government was so intent on the public not seeing the video of the crash which shows evidence of an ordnance blast and would show this more clearly if frames hadn’t probably been removed from the video.
Pentagon video 1
VIDEO: Judicial Watch Pentagon crash 1 out of 2
Comment: The plane hits at about 1:34 minutes. In a similar way, the plane that hit the Pentagon was consumed by the explosion caused by ordnance on the plane and fired from it a short time after it hit the Pentagon. You can see the same kind of fireballs that were seen in the Twin Tower plane hits.
Pentagon video 2
VIDEO: Judicial Watch Pentagon video 2 out of 2
Comment: The plane impacts about 17 seconds into the video. Once again ordnance fireballs are seen.
Times of plane crashes and tower collapses
Comment: The collapses occur too soon after the impacts for the collapses to have been caused by fire-induced weakening of the central steel cores and steel trusses of the towers. South Tower – impact occurs at 9:03 am and then the collapse occurs at 10:05 am, 1 h 2 min later. North Tower – plane impact is at 8:45 am and collapse occurs 1 h 43 min later at 10:28 am. Tower 7 collapses at 5:25 pm. The other buildings in the WTC complex also collapsed/were destroyed. They probably were destroyed about the same time as the WTC 1 and 2 buildings collapsed but smoke plumes and dust clouds obscure views of what happened to them. The mainstream media hardly mentions them in the media.
Comment: You can see Edna Cintron on the right in the pictures above. She is standing at the lower limit of the hole made by the plane. Even though the authorities say that the steel core was being melted through and weakened at this point in time, the fires were not hot enough to deter people from standing less than a dozen meters from the fires. And obviously they haven’t been burned to a crisp by these fires that were supposed to be hot enough to melt and buckle thousands of tons of steel in less than two hours.
Comment: In the picture above you can see the proximity of Edna Cintron to the fires. These fires were supposed to be weakening thousands of tons of steel of core columns and trusses at the moment the picture was taken.
Plane crash diagram
Comment: This picture does not show the fact that most of the plane had been consumed in the explosion that shortly occurred after the plane made impact as evidenced by the fireballs of ordnance detonation. You can see in this diagram the wings of the plane where much of the fuel is stored. Apparently the fuel from the wings percolated down about 90 stories of the tower beneath the point of impact and melted the steel core and steel trusses. It is impossible to believe that this volume of fuel did all the destruction it was supposed to have done.
Plane crash and bomb impact
Comment: This diagram shows where the plane made impact on the building. Note the thickness of the wings. The wings held most of the fuel that was supposed to have done all the damage to seven buildings within the WTC complex, along with gravity.
Plane crash into an apartment block in Tehran
Military plane crashes into Tehran tower block – from Mail Online
Last updated at 16:43 06 December 2005
An Iranian military plane carrying at least 94 people crashed into a Tehran apartment block and exploded, killing all those on board and several others on the ground, police and witnesses said.
The Tehran Coroner’s Office told Reuters it expected between 110 and 120 dead.
“Both the main and reserve fuel tanks were full which is why the plane went up in flames as soon as it hit the building,” Ahmad Ziaie, the head of Iran’s fire brigade told state television.
He said the building which was hit, located in a densely populated area of south Tehran, housed about 150 people.
An Interior Ministry spokesman said several people had been killed on the ground. Many of these were in cars, whose burned-out shells littered the crash site.
The C-130 transport plane, which belonged to the Iranian air force, was bound for the southern port of Bandar Abbas and many of the passengers were local journalists who were going to cover military exercises in the Gulf.
The pilot had reported engine trouble and requested an emergency landing at Tehran’s Mehrabad international airport, but crashed just short of the runway, police said.
Iranian media quoted witnesses as saying one of the plane’s wings was on fire as it came down.
Iranian reporters and cameramen at the scene wept and consoled one another because they knew colleagues on board.
Witnesses said the front of the plane had been completely destroyed on impact. A propeller and ripped wing smouldered in front of the blackened flats. Flames licked out of the windows of the apartments and thick black smoke billowed into the sky.
“Some people were throwing themselves out of windows to escape the flames. I saw two die like that,” a policeman said.
Another policeman said several children were among the dead in the apartment block. Schools had been closed for the day because of critical pollution levels in the capital.
Passerby Hassan Hedayati, his face covered in dust and hands caked with dried blood, was among the first on the scene.
“I pulled 30 bodies out of the plane. They were all charred,” he said.
The apartment block, which was still standing, is in the Shahrak-e Towhid neighbourhood, a special residential area for the military and their families. It lies on the flightpath to Tehran’s Mehrabad airport.

Comment: A plane crashed into an apartment building in Tehran. It too caused a fire. However, there was no sudden collapsing of the tower and the tower only has superficial damage. There are scorch marks and there is a small hole. Most of the plane debris appears outside. It appears that the plane did not penetrate the building. The apartment does not appear to be built with the same kind of robustness as the Twin Towers. It is mainly made from concrete. It does not appear to have a steel core. Nor does it have steel perimeter walls.
Comment: A very similar scenario as the Twin Towers plane crashes but very different outcomes. Fires have broken out in the apartment block caused by jet fuel presumably. However, there is no sudden simultaneous collapse and disintegration of the apartment tower block as there are in the Twin Towers’ cases.
Comment: The aftermath of the plane crash into the tower block in Tehran. The fires are extinguished but not before gutting several stories of the block but there is no sudden collapse and dissolution of the apartment building.
Comment: The fires have been extinguished. You can see the remnants of the plane outside the apartment building. The apartment building is still standing.
Comment: Another view of the same apartment building in Tehran that was hit by a plane.
Comment: The plane did not breach the concrete walls of the apartment building in Tehran but made impact and then fell onto the ground outside. You can see a pocket of fire in the apartment building. The fire seems to be burning with the same intensity as the fires in the Twin Towers.
Comment: The highrise is extensively damaged by fire that affected half a dozen floors of the building. However, even though it did not have a steel core it is still standing. Compare this apartment building with the Twin Towers which did have steel cores and steel columns in its walls. In this picture, the fires are all out. You can see people standing on the balconies looking down.
Comparison of the two plane crashes
El Al plane crash into an apartment building in the Netherlands
Comment: Similarly to the Tehran apartment plane crash, this apartment building is still standing. Fires are confined to the area of impact.
Plane crash into an apartment building on York and 72nd
Comment: This is another plane crash in Manhattan. There was fire on several floors of the apartment block caused by the plane crash. However, the building is still standing. The building is a less sturdy structure than the World Trade Center towers.
Fire still raging in one story of the apartment building after a plane crashed into it. However, the jet-fuel caused fire does not cause the disintegration and collapse of the building one and one-half hour later.
Comment: A large pocket of fire which has spread to two stories. However, the outcome is very different to the outcome of the fires in the Twin Towers and the rest of the WTC complex.
Comment: The small airplane caused a four-alarm fire in a building on E 72nd St and York Ave, not far from the WTC complex. The plane crash occurred in 2006.
Plane crash into the Empire State Building
Comment: There was a plane crash into the Empire State building. The picture shows the extent of the damage of the plane crash. The walls are mostly concrete, not steel columns like the Twin Towers.
Comment: The arrow points to the point where the plane crashed into the Empire State Building.
Comment: This was the plane that crashed into the Empire State building.
Comment: This was the hole made by the plane. You can see the mangled wreckage of the plane at the bottom of the hole.
Comment: After the plane crash, the damaged section of the Empire State building is repaired. The building stood after the impact and fire unlike the Twin Towers.
Comment: A later picture of the Empire State building, another skyscraper that was hit by a plane and caught fire from the jet fuel.
Pirelli Tower plane crash

Three dead as plane hits Milan’s tallest building – CNN World
April 18, 2002
A small private plane slammed into Milan’s tallest building on Thursday, killing at least three people, injuring dozens more and carving a huge gash in the 32-story structure.
The aircraft — a single-propeller Rockwell Commander 112 TC piloted by a 68-year-old Swiss man — hit the 26th floor of the Pirelli Tower in an apparent accident at 5:48 p.m. (11:48 a.m. EDT), 18 minutes after taking off, Italian officials said. [..]
Milan fire brigade officials said the aircraft — containing only the pilot, according to the flight plan — was on fire as it flew into the tower. There was an explosion in the building when the four-seat plane hit, but there is no danger the building would collapse, police said. The tower — which once housed the headquarters of Italian tire and cable manufacturer Pirelli — now serves as the headquarters for the regional government. Italian Interior Minister Claudio Scajola said the pilot, a government official who was working inside the building and a third person who was not identified died in the crash.
Thirty to 40 people from the 415-feet-high (127-meter) tower in central Milan were taken to hospital with injuries, mostly broken arms and legs, a reporter on the scene told CNN.
One Milan hospital, Fatebene Fratelli, said it had received 20 injured, including a woman with burns.
The flight originated in Magadino Airport near Locarno, Switzerland, about 50 miles from Milan. [..]
In the moments after the crash, onlookers gaped from the piazza at the smoking hole carved into the concrete structure. Firemen controlled the blaze within an hour of the crash.
The tower, located near Milan’s central train station, is one of the world’s tallest concrete buildings. Designed in the 1950s by architects Gio Ponti and Pier Luigi Nervi, the building is one of the city’s most prominent symbols, along with the city’s cathedral.

Comparison of plane crashes and damage
Comment: Here the plane crashes with two other high rise buildings – the Pirelli building and the apartment building in Amsterdam – are shown.
In all four 9/11 events the plane got ‘swallowed up’
Comment: The planes in all the crashes on 9/11 including the Pennsylvania and Pentagon crashes are all ‘swallowed up’ by the crashes. That is because in all four cases, ordnance was detonated to destroy the planes on impact or soon after impact.
Comment: The outline shows where the ordnance punched a hole in the steel perimeter wall of the World Trade Center Twin Tower. You can also see in this picture that the fires are emitting black smoke showing they were oxygen-starved and were dying out. This is the full extent of the fires in the tower – confined to a couple of floors. But authorities claim the fires were raging in the core of the building weakening and buckling the steel core and trusses. The fire is glowing a red shade which indicates it is of moderate intensity but not of an intensity to be able to weaken and buckle steel. The perimeter of the tower is made of steel columns but the steel columns are not affected by the fires. There is no buckling, blackening or bowing of the steel columns of the perimeter. However, supposedly the steel columns of the core which are thicker than the steel columns of the perimeter are at the moment that the picture was taken was buckling and bending along its length.
Comment: The jagged hole in the center was made by the missile that was fired from underneath the belly of the plane right before the plane made impact with the tower. The plane made impact with the building but only part of it entered the building. Parts of it fell off and were flung onto the ground, some of them quite a distance away. The plane that did enter the building was consumed in the explosion of ordnance that was detonated a split second after impact. There are only two pockets of fire in this picture. They could have been extinguished by the firefighters that were trying to reach the area if they had been given a chance. However, the tower in this picture was detonated before the firefighters could get hoselines up to the fires and the firefighters were killed along with the person(s) who had survived the plane crashes and were standing at the edge of the hole and waving for help.
Comment: In this picture of the Pennsylvania crash site of the UA 93 plane, there is only a scar in the ground where the plane made impact with the ground. The scar is in the shape of the plane. However, the plane parts are themselves not visible. That’s because the plane was exploded by ordnance shortly after impact just as the Pentagon and Twin Tower planes were.
World Trade Center Twin Tower external column structure built like mosquito netting
Sturdy structure of the WTC Twin Towers
Comment: This photo shows the steel structure of the core. You can see how densely the columns of the core are situated to one another. The fuel from the planes’ wings were supposed to have buckled the steel columns of the core. Gravity then helped pulverize thousands of tons of concrete and steel into dust. The fires somehow avoided damaging the perimeter steel columns and preferentially buckled and burned the steel columns in the core. The fires were supposedly intense enough to buckle and otherwise damage quite some long length of the steel core and the trusses but were not intense enough to burn people standing about ten meters away from them.
Comment: Why don’t stainless cooking pots buckle when you put them over high flame? People cook with kerosene as fuel. However their steel/iron/aluminium cooking pots do not melt or buckle when in contact with the flame.
Comment: It is hard to believe that the thin aluminium alloy skin of the planes sliced through the steel columns of the periphery on its own. Ordnance must have been used to punch a hole into the steel periphery of the tower.
WTC Construction Manager’s statement
VIDEO: De Martini construction manager on the WTC Twin Towers
Interview date: January, 2001. De Martini died in the 9/11 attacks.
“The building was designed to have a fully loaded 707 crash into it, that was the largest plane at the time. I believe that the building could probably sustain multiple impacts of jet liners because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door – this intense grid – and the plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting. It really does nothing to the screen netting.”
Fireballs seen in all four crashes
A shower of debris is visible. The debris includes the parts of the disintegrated plane. Most of each plane that struck the tower was destroyed a second after the plane made impact with the tower. These are fireballs of ordnance detonation.
Debris from the South Tower plane in small shattered pieces
The ordnance smoke plumes are also visible, they are the gray plumes. These plumes are distinct from the black smoke plumes of a kerosene fire. A similar smoke plume was caught on camera by Val McClatchey in the Shanksville crash.
Compare these ordnance smoke plumes with the smoke plume of a jet fire:
Bulk of plane did not enter the tower
The tail and the wings should have been found outside but they were consumed in the fireball before they had a chance to drop onto the ground. However the missile tore a (rectangular-shaped) hole in the building.

It can penetrate more than 13 feet into a target and can be accurate from up to 70 miles away.
Comment: Look at the ordnance flash. Colors seen in this flash are white, yellow and orange. These colors reflect the high temperatures of the fireballs. The materials that burn in an explosion have high temperatures at which they vaporize. The white color is the highest temperature, next yellow, then orange and lastly red. [Include temperature chart of burning materials or steel] This flash looks like the one seen when the planes crashed into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. On these occasions, the flashes were seen just as the planes hit or were about to hit the buildings.
The colors of the fireball show that this is a fireball of ordnance detonation.
Comment: The almost white flame of the fireball right after the plane crash shows that ordnance is involved.

White flare shoots out from the fireball
The law of equal and opposite forces is illustrated here. A streamer shoots out from the fireball explosion by the blast. Note the white flare in this picture. A white flare appears because of the chemicals in the explosive that give off a white flash when they are oxidized.
FEMA: Only 3,500 gallons (13 cubic meters) of fuel burned in each tower
Comment: Some objects are streaking backwards out of the fireball in the opposite direction of the missile that was fired from the plane a split-second before the plane hit the building. These objects are either missile parts and/or parts of the plane that are ejected outwards by the force of the explosion.
