Kent, Here are the two debris pics making the rounds on the net. Could you give these to your angle analysis sleuth for study? To my untrained eye, it looks like the same piece of debris was hauled around and repositioned for each picture, rather than it being kept stationary as would evidence in a crime scene. It goes without say that if the debris proves to have been moved like a prop, then furthered is suspicion that the event has been staged. Thanks.
PS: The shadow alone on the second debris image implies 2 light sources, doncha think? I dunno Kent, you are the artist, you tell me. But to my untrained eye, it looks like the image was um constructed.

The position of this piece of wreckage has not moved. The changes in the shadows are slight and are most likely due to the arc of the sun and variations in cloud or smoke density. This photo was taken pointing East and as the sun moves from East to West, the shadow would tend to shorten as the morning progressed. If you check both photos you will see the same two distinctive pieces of wreckage in the background, (circled). You will also note the fire hose running across the background in the same position, plus the angle in relationship to the building is the same. Actually the angleb of this piece of wreckage in relationship to the impact hole is probably the best piece of evidence that the crash happened essentially as reported, as the angle of defection off of a surface is equal to the angle of inflection. The question remains, why is there not more of it? The only difference between the two photos is that one was taken with a wider angle lens than the other and they were taken from different positions just a few feet apart as can be seen by the green sight lines.
Based on my own investigations, I believe AA77 most likely impacted the Pentagon essentially as described by dozens and dozens of witnesses. The relatively sterile condition of the impact zone and the small hole still poses a huge mystery however. As for the surveillance camera video officially released by the Pentagon, it is ether doctored, or as I am beginning to suspect, a complete fabrication. According to witnesses the plane came in at a STEEP angle, while the video shows it barely clearing ground level and kicking up dust in it's wake. The question is what are they hiding, some perimeter defense system?
One expert witness stated that the plane was doing 300 kts. (345 mph) max. on final approach. Based on my previous calculations, this means that there are closer to 30 frames (1 sec) missing from the impact video, not to mention the plane in the video is in the wrong position according to witness accounts. The lack of scoring along the ground and unscathed hydro spools tends to support eye-witness accounts that the jet came in at a high angle of attack and not along the ground as shown in the video. The plane had it's landing gear and flaps up and was in a slight right-bank when it impacted, so the wing damage on the left side of the impact hole should be slightly higher than the right side of the hole.
One further question. Of the five sides of the Pentagon, why did the hijackers choose the hardest one to hit? Why not the southern or eastern faces, which are far better exposed? Is it just another coincidence that they "luckily" chose the only side that had been refurbished with re-enforced walls, blast glass and kevlar netting?

A most interesting point is made in this report, one that hadn't dawned on me. Good photos, some repeats...
To make the next and possibly the most important point of this report, let us recall the other events that happened earlier that day. At 8:45 AM EST, American flight #11 slammed into the North Tower at the World Trade Center. The resulting fireball was so huge and so hot, that as reported, it melted and fatigued the supporting steel girders to the point that the building collapsed. At 9:03 AM EST, United flight #175 slammed into the South Tower at the World Trade Center. The resulting fireball was so huge and so hot, that as reported, it melted and fatigued the supporting steel girders to the point that the building collapsed. At 9:40 AM, EST, American flight #77 reportedly slammed into the Pentagon. All three of these planes had embarked on a trans-continental flight and carried approximately 8,600 remaining gallons of fuel at the time of their respective impacts. The first two crashes caused intense fires hot enough to melt steel. Now look very closely at photo #6. Notice the left side of the hole and note that the walls of the interior are not only unblemished, but show no signs of soot, smoke or heat damage. On the upper floor, to the left of one of the support columns, one can plainly see a green file cabinet with a computer monitor or TV on top of it. Two floors below one can plainly see a wooden stool with an open book on top of it. Are we to believe that a plane with 8,600 gallons of fuel would not generate a fireball and enough heat to singe the pages of an open book only feet away? or to melt the plastic case of a monitor?

hello kent, bardsquill,
I just wanted to drop a line and thank you for the links to my Independent Flight 77 - Pentagon Event Investigation page. Updating the page has been an ongoing, continuous project.
I wanted to point you in the direction of a piece of image processing I did. You can find it on the investigation, but here's a direct link to the image...
lemme know what you think.
thanks and kind regards
