Go to youtube and search for flashover and backdraft. It looks like this is exactly what it is. Of course the video is from far away and the videos on your tube are up close, but you will get the general idea. Would also explain explosions people heard in the buiding. Could have been flashovers or backdrafts and not bombs. Just an idea!

Check the time on the video - it's the blast pressure from the fuel explosion of UA175 hitting WTC2 that caused the change in the smoke. It also made the fires in WTC1 flare up momentarily and the same effect is captured in a number of videos from different angles. The video has been strategically cut before the fireball from WTC2 becomes visible in the frame to bolster the 'editor's' proposed theory.

then momentarily, over half a second, dieing down then instantly resuming where it left off, not getting worse or becoming more intense. The fire does not flare, it just stops and starts it seems. If you tell me i'm wrong i'll believe you because you know what your talking about, but i just wanted to be clear on this.

The flashes are the fire alarm system in the building going off. I am working in a building right now in mid-town Manhattan and we have fire drills every month -these huge flashing lights go off all over the building they are bright like a camera flash- I am sure they had the same thing at the WTC. The smoke anomalys I can't explain - but the flashes are very explainable.

Can someone tell me how the explosion of a plane into the side of the other tower would impact the smoke coming out of the other tower? Why would the smoke already on the outside not exhibit the same change?
I'd theorize that a well timed explosion went off at the same time in the other tower - 'what was that bang?' 'Don't worry it was just flight 175 hitting the other tower... keep reading about paris hilton and using your credit card'.
Why didn't the blast wave then effect the smoke already in the air? It does NOT exhibit any changes at all.
