There is definately a difference in frame rate between a time lapse security camera and a broadcast helicopter news camera.
However, BOTH can be altered.
There is enough framerate in the broadcast spec camera on that helicopter to see an airplane flying at 500mph, as everyone has seen on the videos of
the WTC towers. It is far less likely that at least 5 major networks using their own cameras and angles and feeds to their headquarters, would all be
seeing something fabricated hitting those towers.
The helicopter video is just that, a video, not a recording from a live broadcast as the WTC plane hits were. That particular video could easily be
altered. And it would not take much effort to do so using broadcast production equipment found in every single television station's production room.
And in 2001, that equipment would be sophisticated enough to alter the video to a point where instead of a plane, there is a missle.
Non-linear video editing computers used in broadcast and video production facilities are quite sophisticated, and produce extremely high end results.
The television show "Babylon 5" at its begining used Amiga computers to generate all those space scenes and ships that looked like huge spider-crabs
and battle scenes. Those computers were quite inferior, yet they produced high end CG that was quite advanced for their time.
That helicopter video sat around for years until recently it pops up on someone's youtube channel. That in itself is very very suspect. If that
footage was important and clearly showed a missile instead of an airplane, the tv station or production crew would have published that the very day it
was shot. The "missle" in that video seems to pause for a few frames, then proceeds to hit the Pentagon....a missile does NOT pause mid-flight.
However a computer glitch during a rendering CAN cause that effect.
Im not saying that its not plausible that there was something else besides an airplane that hit the Pentagon, but to use that helicopter shot which
was not seen on any network on that day, and is but a recording, delayed in its publication for years, it is indeed highly subject to being altered
and is suspect in my book.
