my issue is with a building, whatever number it was, just up and collapsing, no aero planes or fires or earthquakes, just a building collapsing for no apparent reason Eason
Which building was that ???

Saudi Arabia, anyone?
No serious fires ....... and only a few hundred squibs.
when you have full control over that beast you have to "fly" it like a large ship, a large boat, it take time to respond and trajectories must be well calculated, it´s not just a mater of picking up the controls and let´s go there... It won´t happen.

That's not a building "collapsing" but being blown up with explosives from the top down in some sort of top-down simulated "collapse".

I was going to comment but deleted it cause I know how these threads always turn out. But he's right. Newton's 3rd law. It's inconceivable that the top block can destroy everything below. It should eventually slow down to a stop. All that energy is clearly exploding laterally, not a gravitational collapse. There's something else assisting there. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, there's no way that top portion 1/4 can crush 3/4 with almost 0 resistance. Those buildings were designed to stand not fall.
