Excellent Popular Mechanics article on this topic.
I apologize if this is a repost.
It's not reposted in this thread, and I've not seen it. I agree with you about "eyewitness" testimony, in fact many only claim it was a commercial airliner after the official story tied flight 77 to the Pentagon crash.
I'm afraid that link doesn't answer many questions. If one wing was sheared when it hit the ground, according to many "eyewitnesses", where is the resulting damage from that? I also don't buy the "liquid" thing squeezing the plane into the small hole. I'm also not convinced about a landing gear causing the punch through in wing C. Many assertions made, but nothing in print that convinces. And what's with this photo?
This is supposed to be proof of wreckage? It's a freakin' piece of a cowling. So what? And it's the only photo that shows anything.
And nothing explains the manuvers a rookie pilot hijacker did with a 757 from 7000 feet, or why nothing was done about this plane, when it was all alone in the air for 30 minutes after it was known planes had already hit the towers. Where are the fighters? Where is the building defense? Why the difficult flight approach in the newly remodeled, thinly populated side
of the building that this plane should not have been able to do?
