Besides you tin foilers have always said that the hijackers couldn't fly !
So how do maneuver a 767 through the maze of buildings ?
Designed by César Pelli, with Adamson Associates, the complex was built by Olympia and York between 1985 and 1988 on landfill used to build Battery Park City. The fill material came from dirt excavated during the building of the World Trade Center, as well as garbage, dirt and debris.
Nice try whack job - using an outdated photo
There`s a reason for everything, so why that wing at the Pentagon?.
Or... Hit the towers around the 80th storey thus missing out on the chance to kill those western pigs at a time the towers are relatively empty and hope the jet fuel flies down the elevator shafts and deposits itself all over each and every floor truss - catches alight and weakens every single weld/rivet/bolt in the place, whilst at the same time somehow vaporising the centre core aided with random items exploding and mostly none combustible office ware and furniture.

I can't be inside his head, only guess.
I think they just were intent on "ramming". Of course, going in through the roof would have been much, much worse, more damage and deaths. Lucky they weren't smart enough to realize that.
And, not sure his aim would have been that good, only one try, right?
Lining it up in your windshield....many seconds to finalize the aim, is easier than a steep dive, which would actually need MORE experience. Or, a low approach as was done, but just slightly above the roofline, THEN into the center, again would have been much worse, and THAT probably was within his skill level.
