Here's a video:
It's NBC footage of WTC2 falling.
See that dark belt in WTC2? Those are skylobby and mechanical floors (which were supposed to have been much more reinforced). Watch that band
carefully, because after the collapse begins, you'll see something interesting.
Here's WTC2 beginning to collapse vertically:
Funny. See those white ejections?
According to NIST, the first floor of WTC2 failed when the trusses failed, and then the perimeter columns were left exposed, without lateral support,
and fell on their own (see below image -- trusses are lateral and perimeter columns are vertical
So why are we seeing a fine white powder (such as what "snowed" on Manhattan from the collapses -- keep watching the vid to realize that this
smoke, which is much darker in the vid) coming out as soon as the collapse is just beginning? The WTC fires never
that white, and as the collapse progresses you can pick out lighter dust from darker smoke (see very last still frame in this post), and one would
think that falling trusses, as small and thin as they are, and concrete slabs on top, wouldn't immediately have pulverized the floors slabs in the
first floor beneath into such fine particles. Large chunks, maybe, but they couldn't produce those fine particles alone, let alone so early. So what
is that white being ejected and where did it come from?
But oh well. And notice that the black band still intact, as are the floors in between
Here you can see solid debris (steel columns somehow knocked out of their spandrel plates) falling ahead of the white puffs, which have expanded.
Suddenly, a new set of expulsions from the skylobby area.
We have the same problems that we did with the first expulsions via the official theory, plus some new ones:
Floors would have had to have failed in between the first (from which the first white puffs came from), and the skylobby in order for the floor
directly above the skylobby to fall and cause more trouble.
Remember that there was a floor system on each floor. Makes sense, right? Well if a floor is going to fail and fall onto the floor below and cause
destruction, as via "panacake theory", then it's assumed that a floor isn't going to fall and knock out another floor that happens to be a couple
floors down, and isn't even touching.
And you can't fall directly through floors, as there's a physical force much
more powerful than gravity that prevents objects from passing
through one another. That force is electromagnetism. I'm sure that anyone that has ever fallen down or punched a wall has experienced this force.
Also note that the floors between the first floor to fail and the skylobby were normal floors (see here for
), and none of these floors were fire-ravaged, so one could assume that similar, if not greater
forces upon similar floors would
produce similar results. Instead, the floors in between showed no expulsions
. Interesting, isn't it?
Watch the rest of the video and you'll see something even more interesting: after the expulsions at the skylobby/mech floor area, the real
vertical collapse kicks in, and you'll see what appears to be the same kind of expulsion on either every single or every other floor, begin racing
down the building
. I'm watching it now. After the skylobby/mech area expulsion occurs, watch what happens. The collapse goes insane under the
puffs ejected at the skylobby/mech floor region.
As a final observation on this video, notice the two different colors of dust/smoke as the collapse progresses.
There's darker stuff, on top, and whitish stuff, on the bottom. The darker stuff all comes from above the first floor to eject white dust. It starts
making itself apparent around the same time that the skylobby/mech floor erupts. It might have to do with the fact that the fires were on those upper
floors, and therefore there was actually smoke
on them to erupt outwards with the rest of what was thrown out, unlike all the lower
, for which there was no smoke, and all the ejections were very light and provided the dust that powdered Manhattan.
Some additional photos of dust and WTC2 Collapse in general
Solid, lightly-colored dust in Manhattan after the collapses (keep in mind that a lot of sun is being blocked -- the paper should be very bright
So we have a pretty good idea of where this all came from now, right? I mean, all of this fine powder obviously came directly from the Tower
collapses, but now we've seen some frames showing the actual kind of events from which the stuff originated.
Another view of WTC2's collapse:
Again, the white expulsions of fine, light dust very
early in the collapse. Darker, smokey ejections are above, and on the right of the
prominent corner, you can even see the molten metal still pouring off.
A pre-collapse photo of the same corner:
But now the thread's gotten off the topic of the NBC video, and could go on indefinitely, so I'll just end it here I guess and see if any discussion
