If these frames are 1/2 second apart in time, isn't that too fast for a bright yellow/white fireball of that magnitude to erupt from the fuel
contained in the plane's wings?
Have you ever seen a plane crash before? Look at this video of an
F-16 of the Air Force's Thunderbird Group crashing.
As you can see, the fireball is instantaneously as it crashes. And the 757 would have a lot more mass and a lot more fuel.
The object that appears in frame 24 is much too small to be a Boeing 757. It is obviously not a 757. It is clearly something other than what the
government is saying it is.
How can you say that? Do you know the distance to the plane? Do you know what its angular size would be at that distance? I would like to see your
math proving that that is not a 757. As soon as I can get the videos onto my harddrive and do some screen caps, I'll point out how it is a 757.
How were they able to get their act together so quickly and go to the locations where the other video evidence was confiscated if this event was
Uh... Because the Pentagon is right there and they probably already knew what video cameras on establishments pointed at the building?

No. Airlines fill as many as they can, if they can't fill the plane, they can't fill the plane. In the long run it's cheaper to just fly with a
smaller load than to cancel the flight and bump people to other flights that will get them to their destination.
That all being said...
When was the Pentagon built? Ground was broken on September 11, 1941. It was completed 18 months later, in March, 1943. Now, following WWII and
entering the Cold War. The Pentagon had been nicknamed "Ground Zero," as it was suspected to be one of the very first targets of a nuclear missile.
Don't you think that during this time they did renovations to it to help the building withstand a near-miss of a nuclear attack? Well, couldn't it
be that these renovations included strengthening the walls of the Pentagon?
They could have done something similar to the walls along the lines of how nuclear reactor encasements are built. Watch this test video of an
F-4 Phantom II
crashing into a prototype of one of these walls, at 500 mph. The
plane literally disappears into thin air. Now, a 757 moving at 500 mph would have much
more mass than the F-4, and therefore more intertia,
allowing it to be able to penetrate along the lines where the most mass is, the fuselauge. The wings would have blown up from the force of the impact
as well as from the fuel inside.
This theory would also explain why so little parts of the plane were left behind.
