I was fortunate enough to have a friend who was an air crash investigator. I had seen photos of real plane crashes and knew the 9/11 photographs were outlandish. These are the photographs of the Tupolev 154, a plane roughly identical to those from 9/11. The Tupolev carried 180 passengers with a takeoff weight of 230,000 pounds and the Boeing 757 carried 200 passengers with a takeoff weight of 255,000 pounds.
A picture, as we know, is worth a thousand words and maybe, just maybe a few arrests of real criminals also.
Real planes don’t dissolve. Real planes have real engines, real wings, real tails and leave tons of very visible debris. They don’t totally disappear into a hole leaving nothing behind, nor do they fold up like a post-it note.
