RE: Foil Hat Time?
I'll explain further. An airplane is made to be lightweight. It isn't going to punch a huge hole in the re-inforced side of a building. The Pentagon was built to accept such an incident. Also, the side that the aircraft crashed into was recently renovated... it was even stronger than before. The wall served it's purpose. The plane is made of lightweight material... not something that's going to destroy a concrete and steel wall. Also, the glass in the Pentagon is blast-proof glass... that explains why it didn't shatter. The glass, for the most part, did it's job. Also, why can't we find the alumnium scrap anywhere? Easy, aluminum has a low melting point. Jet fuel burns hotter than this.
I'd go on, but I just found this link. It explains some stuff. http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/blflight77.htm
