You can't believe that random fires, planes crashing into the sides of skyscrapers are guaranteed to result in collapse into the foundations with no possibility of the collapse causing massive damage to the surroundings.
ummm, there was massive damage to the surrounding buildings, you are unaware of that?
Depends what you call massive. As far as I know no other building collapsed. An uncontrolled skyscraper collapse could potentially result in large sections toppling part sideways and causing chaos
I would like to move away from the fuselage blink issue for a moment, mainly because it is of such poor quality. I do not believe this is a direct, no loss copy of the original.
We have something that is much easier to see with the naked eye, that just doesn't make sense technically.
Perhaps someone with video analysis skills can explain it for us.
There were two parking gate camera videos released to Judicial Watch :
#1 has a clear view of the lawn and #2 has the (LT : camera in the #1 parkingboot) box obstruction in the foreground.
In the #2 video, at the 0:25 mark, you see the smoke trail on the right. The fireball erupts one second after the smoke is seen. A full eight seconds later, @ 0:34 we see a flash that covers the whole screen.
In the #1 video, at the 1:26 mark you see the smoke trail on the right. Just one second later we see a flash that covers most of the screen. (some blue sky is still visible) The fireball and the flash are simultaneous.
Why is there an eight second difference for each camera to capture the flash?

Photo Showing Burning Tree, Right of Pentagon Crash Center
This reproduction of a photograph by Daryl Donley shows a large fireball centered about fifteen feet to the right of the middle of the damaged part of the Pentagon's facade.
The photograph does not capture the moment of impact, since there is dark smoke rising from the ground far to either side of the fireball.
The fireball appears to be the result of the combustion of a small tree in front of the facade.
Photo of Fires Before Fire Suppression
This image shows the central region of damage to the Pentagon prior to the commencement of fire suppression efforts.
This is an edited version of a photograph taken by Daryl Donley.
Was it normal practice to have very heavy high explosive ordnance stocked in Pentagon office space.? That then exploded minutes after impact.? I really doubt that, knowing all meticulous safety precautions in play at military headquarters. Top brass doesn't like to be blown to smithereens by sloppy lower ranked personnel.
A flashover is the near-simultaneous ignition of most of the directly exposed combustible material in an enclosed area. When certain organic materials are heated, they undergo thermal decomposition and release flammable gases. Flashover occurs when the majority of the exposed surfaces in a space are heated to their autoignition temperature and emit flammable gases (see also flash point). Flashover normally occurs at 500 °C (932 °F) or 590 °C (1,100 °F) for ordinary combustibles, and an incident heat flux at floor level of 20 kilowatts per square metre (2.5 hp/sq ft).
