NYPD aviation units arrived at the WTC by 8:52 a.m. They checked to see if roof rescue was possible and reported back that they are unable to land as a result of heavy smoke conditions. First person interviews with aviation unit personnel also indicates that heat from the building’s fires was causing the helicopter engine temperature to increase. An aviation unit called again at 9:38 a.m. for permission to land on the roof of WTC 1. A first person interview indicated that the aviation units were desperate to assist the people trapped and jumping from the upper floors. There was no indication that landing conditions had improved. Five minutes after the request to land, a senior NYPD officer ordered that no one was to rappel onto the buildings

I seen the footage. minutes pass, yet I never saw any helicopters throw a rope to the people coming out of windows. You would think they would send helicopters up there with rope ladders to at least save someone..but I never saw any of that. there was plenty of time to send down a rope to someone and save their life..why did no one send an air rescue team?

thedman, silverado and fiftyfifty stated several times that chopper rescues were attempted and that a roof rescue was not possible yet people still claim that "they dident try and rescue anyone" or "the only choppers were media".
