This is totally off topic. However, this is a reason why forensic investigations are done on crashed aircraft. This was a case where illegal parts from another crashed aircraft were illegally placed in what once was a safe jetliner. The FAA has well-documented this particular case and took it quite seriously:

As nasty as it is, I'm trying to imagine the consequences of a cylinder containing people at 400+ mph coming to a stop in a distance of several metres. Separately identifying individuals via DNA or any other method from that homogenised mess in the ground would be a massive undertaking wouldn't it, being all mixed up and heavily contaminated.
Considering what appeared to happen on the day with the plane being tracked on radar, confirmed as hijacked by occupants, earlier events at WTC & Pentagon, eyewitnesses testifying they saw it go down and where/how: would it appear necessary to have to prove it was flight 93?
The cause was obvious (or seemed obvious enough at the time), no suggestion of mechanical/electrical failure or pilot error so why go to the extent of over-analysing the bit & pieces apart from ID'ing the victims when resources for investigation were being stretched to the limit already with a disaster recovery, not a crime scene investigation.
I have to admit the eyewitnesses gave confusing accounts but considering how much time they had to observe it discrepancies are bound to occur in individual observations.
We should be undertaking a forensic study to find when the no plane/wrong plane theories first surfaced, who started them and why.

On 9/11 and the days immediately following was there any reason for the investigation to assume that it wasn't flight 93 therefore requiring intensive detective work for verification apart from dealing with the remains of victims?
THE SCREAMING THING
At the horseshoe-shaped Indian Lake, about a mile east of the official crash site, several eyewitnesses recalled hearing “a screaming thing” that “screeched” as it passed over the golf course and lakeside community immediately before a huge explosion shook the ground.
Chris Smith, the groundskeeper at the golf course, said something with a “very loud screeching sound” passed over in the immediate vicinity of the golf course before he heard a huge explosion.
Participants take part in a disaster drill for a staged plane crash at Ivalo airport in Finnish Lapland October 20, 2007. The joint exercise with participants from Britain, Finland, Norway, Russia and Sweden simulates a crash of a British charter flight to test emergency measures in the Barents region, local media reported.
There is no question what plane went down in Shankville.
Your fantasies however lead me to believe that you suffer from some sort of PTSD or some other psychological disorder.
Captain Obvious in Quotation
Think of this - strike a match and quickly pass your finger through it. Did you get burned? No. Try the same thing with a piece of paper. Or grass.
The fuel blew AWAY from where the photog was standing at impact, towards the trees. Remember the 40 degree impact angle? It was angled towards the trees. That's why the grass and trees on that side were burnt in that direction. Simple for most to understand that.
The grass is not untouched. That's what you believe. I do not. Therefore, from my point of view, your q is invalid.
The wings shattered into small pieces upon impact. Only small scattered pieces remained. Or are you suggesting that one would find intact wings?
The fuel was atomized and formed the fireball, some spread into the trees, catching them on fire.
Lack of fire? Did I mention the trees? Do you see them in YOUR photos?

So you see. THe wing scars were present pre 9/11 which concluded that no Boeing 757 crashed in Shanksville on 911.
