Sort of off topic (sorry) but elevator cars have a fail safe, a cable runs from the top of the car up to the penthouse and around a gin wheel and back down to the underside of the sling (what the car rides on). This gin wheel has 3 doglegs that will swing out and lock against 3 stop bars when the RPMs become to great, the other end of the cable is attached to the rail guides below the sling they have a retractable sets of teeth that grip the rail, so whee the car speed is to great the doglegs kick in the cable stops, the teeth engage and bring the car to a stop. Not to mention forcing the car down means your pulling the counter weights up.



Good information - none of this would hold up to an FAE The fail-safe mechanisms you describe are for malfunction and are geared to hold up to g's induced (in the worst case) by freefalling. We're talking about a pressurized situation with a massive downforce. The elevator would just shear off the cable connections, or jerk the gin wheel off its mounts. But the secondary issue to keep in mind here is...the "penthouse" in this case is below the impact zone so this massive FAE would have to hit it as well. It would also have to travel down one elevator shaft - jog across the sky-lobby, and down a new elevator shaft. Much akin to the majic bullet in the JFK assassination single-bullet theory.
You had a staggered configuration with the sky-lobby level that required moving to a second set of elevators to go above it.

yes I agree Val, one other thing I will mention the car can function with only one cable, you see on TV 3 out of 4 cables break and the car takes off ( not true)
these cables are the same cables used on aircraft carriers. a little hard to snap.
They wouldn't they would slip there babbitts first.

There's something else I want to throw in about this. I had listed a series of radio communications that were included in the NIST report in this thread

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Just want to lift out the areas of damage those report:

1. On the 22nd floor - fire and "a lot of debris" (reported at 8:47)

2. Two hurt workers on basement level B2. (reported at 8:48)

3. "Four One to WTC” “Go ahead.” “B1 Level ..(garbled).. We had a minor explosion or major explosion. Something happened down here." (reported at 8:51)

4. "Something is going on at the PATH train. Can you ask somebody…?… make
announcement 310B…people running out of the PATH train. Copy?" (reported at 8:53)

5. broken water pipes at the P4 level (reported at 8:57)

6. broken glass and enough damage to prevent occupants from opening the door and exiting a suite on the 47th floor (reported at 9:00)

7. burning jet fuel on 51st floor (reported at 9:10)

8. concourse is flooding with water (reported at 9:32)

9. "The stage is on fire on the ground level at the main plaza." (reported at 9:40)

10. stairwell walls compromised on floors 73, 74 and 68. (reported at 9:47)

11. At least portion of 22nd floor collapses (reported at 10:19)

"So, if you read it, how come you don't understand it?

The descriptions of the fires and flames in the elevator shafts, the damage to the doors and equipment at the bottom of the shaft are all consistent with the description of the blast effects of a FAE. "

Maybe what your looking for is something more along the lines of a Thermite Fuel-Air device.

THERMITE FUEL-AIR EXPLOSION: This is a very dangerous device. However here is a general description of this device affectionately known as a HELLHOUND. When the thermite burns down to the explosive, it explodes rupturing the container and releasing the superheated fuel. The fuel expands, cooling off and making a fine mist and vapor that mixes with the surrounding air. The hot thermite slag is also thrown into the air which ignites the fuel-air mix.
