In another thread, a member here made the observation that if the towers were in fact bought down in a controlled demolition, why not destroy them in
in order of impact, rather than have the south tower come down first, which in my opinion is a very good question.
Well this got me thinking. If explosives were used to bring them down , they would have to be planted before the impacts(preceeding days / weeks). Now
I do not profess to be an expert on explosives, but I would assume that once planted, they are set off with a detonator hard wired to a switch which
is manually activated.
This would have been imposible to do with the towers as a long chord running in the street woud be slightly conspicuous so I think we can rule out
What about a timed detonator? Given the logistics involved in pulling this attack off, the perpetrators planting the explosives would have had a
theoretical timeline as to what time the planes would hit the building. Using an
hard wired into the buildings electrical system
with a timer, the detonators could have been set to go off at a particular time.
Going back to the 911 Timeline
we see that,
8:46 a.m. September 11, 2001: Flight 11 Hits the North Tower of the World Trade Center
9:03 a.m. September 11, 2001: Newark Controllers Watch Flight 175 Hit WTC
9:59 a.m. September 11, 2001: South Tower of WTC Collapses 56 mins/ 73 mins
10:28 a.m. September 11, 2001: WTC North Tower Collapses 102 mins/ 85 mins
From this information we can deduce how long it took for the buildings to collapse after impact,
North Tower from impact to collapse = 102 minutes.
South Tower from impact to collapse = 56 minutes.
It shows that even though the buildings(which were near identical in constuction) were hit by the same type of planes(similar impacts), the North
Tower stood for nearly TWICE AS LONG as the South Tower.
Now if in fact the explosives were on a set timer, it is my deduction that Flight 11 hit the wrong tower.
Had Flight 11 hit the South tower, and Flight 175 the North tower, we can deduce that the South Tower would fall 73 mins after impact, and the North
Tower would fall 12 minutes later at 83 mins after impact.
Your thoughts on this theory? Does this seem logical to you?
