I'd first like to say that I have been scouring the site all summer and really enjoy and am intrigued by alot that I see here. Keep up the good
Enough of the pleasantries tho...
I saw the below 9/11 video on youtube, and although it doesn't offer any new ideas, i did notice weird smoke behavior at 1:02 into the vid. The shot
is of one of the main towers billowing smoke and it appears that the smoke is sucked in or stopped for a moment, then starts back up again very
Also, as many replies have pointed out, there are some questionable flashes in the first minute of the video that are also worth further
here is the vid
I could speculate that an implosion or explosion inside the building caused this but I want to see if anyone can provide a reasonable explanation like
a sharp shift in the wind or a lull in the blaze.
It would be very interesting if this turned out to be more than mundane. Lets see what you guys can come up with.
It appears to me that something took place inside that building to shift that smoke around. The smoke shift occurs over several floors, on both sides
of the building.
Meanwhile the smoke above continues to flow without variation, which to me rules out external changes...wind shift etc.
It could just be a video anomaly, but I don't think so.
Wow, that is odd... and its not just out of one window, the whole part of the building literally stops smoking. If it was an explosion from inside
where the pressure went out another hole, it could have easily "vacuumed" the smoke into the building for a uick second I suppose. Awesome find
man... i'd like to see some of the theories that pop up on this. Flagged and Fav'd.
Oh, and if you notice, the smoke doesnt shift direction, it disappears altogther and does appear to be "sucked in" to the building.
Okay okay, check this out. Watch to the right of the plane crash mark when the smoke stops. On the far right side next to the wing mark, it appears
the smoke is being pushed out, opposite of whats happening on the other side. Looks to me like an explosion near where the plane originally hit. Im
pretty damn sure they dont have a propane tank that high up in the building, wouldnt ya say?
good observation. it seems like all around the damaged area come little puffs of smoke or dust, but very minumal. I would imagine that an explosion
would have a more significant effect and might not even produce the sucking effect at all no matter where it were placed.
when i first saw this, i thought it was the start of building collapsing, but nothing happened. This first impression leads me to the idea that maybe
a floor gave way or an elevator fell, anything that would create a vacuum in that area. I wish i had some reference of when this video was shot. If
it were taken close to the collapse, this could just be an initial structural failure somewhere. who knows.
Not to throw a monkey wrench into this. Those flashes may, now I say MAY have been caused by exploding fluorescent bulbs inside the building. The
heat, while not hot enough to melt steel could have melted through the bulbs casings causing them to explode.
Other things could have been shorting wires, or other plausible explanations.
In a controlled demo the flashes would have been much more regular and they would have been seen in intervals. I'm not saying that the building
wasn't brought down with controlled demolition charges. But sporadic flashes of light is too hard to pinpoint a direct cause.
sheesh excellent find, really though for the smoke to stop on multiple floors and by stop I mean the flow of air was disrupted. Would not the only
viable explanation be some sort of large explosion that would eat up a bunch of oxygen quickly? Therefore cause the sudden "stop" of the smoke. To
me it does look like the disturbance is seen from the bottom of the smoke filled windows up to the top of the fire.
Whatukno I highly doubt it would be the lighting blowing up that we are seeing so much smoke the bulbs would have to be so close to the window its
actually maybe more likely that it would be people with some sort of reflective surface on trying to signal for help but I dont even think that is the
but we are seeing the flashes in areas where there is little smoke, it is plauseable it is people trying to signal for help. That could be. The smoke
stoping is an interesting find however.
A backflash could be an explenation for the smoke stoping. a large explosion in the basement could indeed have caused the smoke to stop momentaraly as
the flow of air would have reversed towards the vaccum.
A large explosion in the basement levels was reported by a maintanance supervisor shortly after the plane hit.
I know they try to keep those large buildings as air tight as possible for obvious financial reasons but that still would have had to been a pretty
large explosion from the basement to effect the fire so many stories up but then again I am in no way a structural engineer so maybe I am wrong, but
Im thinking that if there was a another explosion it would have had to have been more localized to the initial impact.
it is possible that a simple flash could have been added to the video very easily. But the smoke stopping is not doctored in my unprofessional
opinion. It looks very natural and the video does not skip or blink at all.
i am also surprised that I am the first person to notice this phenomenon. It was instantly obvious to me when I first saw it. I have heard
conspiracies of media outlets controlling what videos to air, and it may be that this clip was suppressed up until now.
I don't have much time now to do this myself, but it would be very interesting to revisit other videos of the smoke coming from the towers to try and
locate this same occurrence from another angle. That would really expose something very important to the story of what happened in those buildings
