The odd damage to the building...

Last updated:  07/08/2010

Is this all the damage that was done to the façade?

"And then the plane crashed.  My mind could not comprehend what had happened.  Where did the plane go? For some reason I expected it to bounce off the Pentagon wall in pieces.  But there was no plane visible, only huge billows of smoke and torrents of fire," Christine Peterson. -NAU Alumni Association (10/18/01)





Where is the impact hole Flight 77 supposedly made?

Do you see evidence of a plane anywhere?

Excerpts from an interview with Lieutenant Colonel Patty Horoho, who was Assistant Deputy/Personnel & Health Management Policy, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower & Reserve Affairs.
"When I arrived at the impact site there was a huge gaping hole in the middle of the building where the plane had hit. At that time, there wasn’t a fireball or anything. It was just a big, blown out section, and a lot of smoke billowing out. There was smoldering debris all over the place, but not huge pieces. Because of the gaping hole I was able to step into the building where it actually occurred, and saw people starting to come down who were injured, burned, with smoke inhalation, or dazed and cut." - Soldiers to the Rescue/Responding in the Pentagon [HTML]

Excerpts from an interview with Staff Sergeant Dwight Wills, who was the NCO of the Patient Admission Division of the Rader Army Health Clinic, Ft. Myer, VA.
'The impression when I first got there, this is just downright ridiculous, for somebody to take an airplane and just run it into the side of the building like they did." - Soldiers to the Rescue/Responding in the Pentagon [HTML]





Would you believe that this is how Flight 77 supposedly crashed?


Flight 77 coming in very low, level to the ground, and at a 45 degree angle.  Notice that the wings and tail would extend outside the impact hole.  (Graphic by Silent But Deadly.)


"It was coming in at a high rate of speed, but not at a steep angle--almost like a heat-seeking missile was locked onto its target and staying dead on course," Joel Sucherman. -eWeek (9/13/01)


Notice this simulation has the Boeing 757 coming in banking to the left slightly off the ground and that it's right tail section and most of it's right wing would hit outside of the impact hole in this graphic.  (Graphic source:  "Pentagon Building Performance Report" [PDF])





Why didn't the tail section of Flight 77 leave any marks on the 3rd story wall?

'Everyone was screaming, crying, running. It's like a war zone'

"AP reporter Dave Winslow also saw the crash. He said, "I saw the tail of a large airliner ... It ploughed right into the Pentagon." - Guardian (09/12/01)

Statement from Penny Elgas

"The plane seemed to be floating as if it were a paper glider and I watched in horror as it gently rocked and slowly glided straight into the Pentagon. At the point where the fuselage hit the wall, it seemed to simply melt into the building... At that point, the wings disappeared into the Pentagon. And then I saw an explosion and watched the tail of the plane slip into the building." - Smithsonian Institute


Notice that only one window is broken on the 3rd or 4th stories between the yellow arrows.

Do you see any evidence that Flight 77's tail section is sticking out of the building, or lying on the ground somewhere on fire after the crash as reported?


Note that the center of the impact hole in this photo taken soon after the crash is right above the standing cable spool on the left.  See other photos on this page too for comparison.  (Photo source:  Library of Congress)


Bush set to address nation on deadly attacks

"The World Trade Center attacks were followed by a similar attack on the Pentagon. An airliner crashed into the building, causing a major explosion and fire. Witnesses saw a tail section sticking out of the building." - 720 WGSE

'I fear for my daughter'

"The plane exploded after it hit, the tail came off and it began burning immediately. Within five minutes, police and emergency vehicles began arriving," said Vin Narayanan, a reporter at USA, who was driving near the Pentagon when the plane hit." -USA Today (09/11/01)





How did the round fuselage of a Boeing 757 make a square hole in the wall?

The red circle designates the only possible entry point for the plane's fuselage to have crashed and penetrated through between the 1st and 2nd floors as the reports have claimed.  (Photo source expired:  DoD Imagery Server [Alt:] [Local HiRes])

Why is there a piece of building still hanging down if a Boeing 757's fuselage crashed right through there?

What happened to the wings?

"Q: One thing that's confusing -- if it came in the way you described, at an angle, why then are not the wings outside? I mean, the wings would have shorn off. The tail would have shorn off. And yet there's apparently no evidence of the aircraft outside the E ring.

Evey: Actually, there's
considerable evidence of the aircraft outside the E ring. It's just not very visible.

On its way in, the wing clipped
. Our guess is an engine clipped a generator. We had an emergency temporary generator to provide life-safety emergency electrical power, should the power go off in the building. The wing actually clipped that generator, and portions of it broke off. There are other parts of the plane that are scattered about outside the building. None of those parts are very large, however. You don't see big pieces of the airplane sitting there extending up into the air. But there are many small pieces. And the few larger pieces there look like they are veins out of the aircraft engine. They're circular." -DoD (09/15/01)

"A pilot who saw the impact, Tim Timmerman, said it had been an American Airways 757. "It added power on its way in," he said. "The nose hit, and the wings came forward and it went up in a fireball." -Guardian (09/12/01)






What's fueling this huge fireball?  Is it a tree?

If the fireball is a tree on fire, why didn't the right wing of flight 77 cut through it?


(Researcher Eric Bart was the first one to point out that the fireball is a tree on fire that should have been chopped down by the right wing of Flight 77.  This tree is tree #2 in the photos.)

This aerial photo was taken on 9/07/01, four days before the crash.  You can see that tree #2 is there.  (Photo source:

"Bell, who had been less than 100 feet from the initial impact of the plane, was nearly struck by one of the plane's wings as it sped by him." -NECA (09/13/01)

"I looked idly out my window to the left -- and saw a plane flying so low I said, “holy cow, that plane is going to hit my car” (not my actual words).  The car shook as the plane flew over.  It was so close that I could read the numbers under the wing." -NAU Alumni Association (10/18/01)

"Then she looked at the window and saw the wing and engine of an airliner smashing through the building, maybe 20 feet away." -USA Today (09/16/01)

Is this the tree stump left over from tree #2?

Does the downed light poles prove Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon?  If the wings of Flight 77 clipped these lamp pole, why is there no evidence of these large long wings at the crash scene?

Do you see any evidence of a 100 ton Boeing 757 after the roof collapsed?


(Photo source: [HiRes])





Why did it take almost a half hour for the roof to collapse?


(Photo source: [HiRes])


"Shortly after the crash, witnesses reported secondary explosions and plumes of smoke that could be seen miles away.
"I was right underneath the plane," said Kirk Milburn, a construction supervisor for Atlantis Co., who was on the Arlington National Cemetery exit of Interstate 395 when he said he saw the plane heading for the Pentagon. "I heard a plane. I saw it. I saw debris flying. I guess it was hitting light poles," said Milburn. "It was like a WHOOOSH whoosh, then there was fire and smoke, then I heard a second explosion." -Washington Post (09/11/01)


Notice the building began to buckle after the crash.

Doesn't the left side of the collapse look odd, kind of like a giant knife went through a soft stick of warm butter?

Do you see any plane debris on the roof tops?
