Being relatively new here, I'd not seen before that proscription. As a guest, I'll abide by ATS's requests of course.

But that means we've gotta come up with a substitute term. Because the word "Truther" is an abomination to both the English language and to the root word itself.

If "Twoofer" is out, then I'm pretty sure that Conspiratard is gone. Can't use that one.

Yes, as you well know, it is the 'components' that matter, in the physics of aerodynamics.


I was calculating vector components.



What a load of BS.

He thought his calculations were low due to a "conversion factor". No, it was due to the fact Farmer/911Files doesn't understand flight dynamics and calculated the wrong vector.


I came up with the same values for bank angle, but slightly lower g-force values. I suspect it is in the conversion factors used.

After being corrected by Balsamo, Farmer deceptively went in and edited his post with a new chart. Par for the course when dealing with Farmer if you have studied any of his work (most of which is now deleted).

I don't see how anyone can take seriously a person who deceptively edits his posts after being corrected, has been caught in numerous lies, flip flops constantly on his own positions which were recorded, and deletes all his work/sites, twice. Which is the reason I have placed him on ignore. He is a waste of time.

It's ok to be honest when you are confused, or don't know something, weedwhacker. I find that honesty is usually the best policy. I've been honest about my inability to read a FDR.

It's good to see you and 911files being honest about not knowing if the vertical acceleration is with respect to the aeroplane's axis or not.

This is an example of what you were talking about weedwacker. In his quote he leaves off the smiley face which is important for context. Notice I used the term g-force, NOT g-load. Rob did not understand it at the time but several pilots who read P4T (I don't) were leading him on at JREF. That is not the math thread either, just a 'have fun with Rob who reads this stuff post'. Again, g-load is an entirely different animal than the 'g-force' generated by cetripetal acceleration (actually a force vector) which was the context of the post and the P4T folks could not seem to get the difference (still don't I suspect).

I guess since the math ain't working out for him, it is time for a personal attack rant. I am hurt...and to be ignored too...crushing, very crushing.

Why thank you tezzajw. Contrary to what some may claim, I have no problem confessing my limitations. The published definitions for vert acc are straightforward, but the data may not be stored that way. I won't know until I get the roll angle values.

I'll say it again, I am not a pilot (although I did solo in a Piper Cub way back in the 70's) and certainly not an aeronautical engineer. I'm a data guy and when the data does not make sense, I have sense enough to ask questions.

No problems, 911files. Thanks for confirming that you're not confused, instead you just currently don't know what the data is telling you.

That makes it very clear to me, especially in light of your earlier comment:

I'm not going to use any three points on the aeroplane. I'm generating a data-derived flight path which will be a range of values (not points) within a 2 sigma band. I'll give you the subframe in the FDR when impact with the poles was most likely based on probability. As I mentioned earlier, from that point, you have your answer with what is known from the physical evidence, the starboard wing tip and the VDOT camera pole. Call that your origin (0,0,0) and fill in the blanks.

Notice I used the term g-force, NOT g-load.


g-force and g-load are the same thing in the context with which you used it.

You claimed you came up with the same bank angles as Balsamo, but slightly lower g-force values than Balsamo. You thought you were calculating the same vector as Balsamo for a given bank angle. You were wrong. You thought your values for g-forces were lower than Balsamo due to a "conversion factor" you applied. You were wrong. It was due to the fact you didn't calculate the same g-force vector as Balsamo since you do not understand flight dynamics. When Balsamo pointed this out on his forum (which you obviously read religiously), you changed your chart to include N and starting defining terms so you could possibly cover up your complete blunder. You have been caught once again in your lies. Epic Fail.

In case you're still confused Farmer, your values were lower than Balsamo's because you calculated the wrong vector, it wasn't due to a conversion factor you suspected. It appears you are still confused with the concept of vertical acceleration regarding flight dynamics relative to an aircraft. Hmmm, you think it's just coincidence acceleration data is named the same as the aircraft axis?


Your backpedaling is very unbecoming 911Files and I'm sure everyone can see through it.

"No, that's not even reality...." - 911files/Farmer explaining the DoD 5 Frames video at the Pentagon of an object crossing the lawn. Recorded.

It's a very interesting phone call and gives a lot of insight into Farmer/911Files deceptive style. Everyone should download and listen to it. It's not very long. Only 9.1 MB download.

Here is a direct link to the mp3 download of the call with Farmer. Right click and save target as.

It is very relative to this thread and the data. Note the confidence in 911Files/Farmer claims. Using words such as "Beyond a shadow of a doubt" when referring to the NTSB data being a disinformation campaign.

Well that's kind of pointless, is it not?

How do you know the roll pitch and yaw of the aeroplane within your flight path, if you don't generate it using three fixed points in a 3-D coordinate system?

The aeroplane can not be modelled by a singular point. It has projections, such as wings, fuselage, tail, etc... You can't model a flight-path based on a single point, and claim that's the path of the entire aeroplane, all confined within a 2-sigma confidence interval.

The only time that it is appropriate to model an aeroplane as a singual point would be for large distances. However, in this instance, where short distances (between light poles) and short time frames are involved, the modelling of the aeroplane needs to be very specific within the three dimensions.

But wait, you claimed that the aeroplane hit the light poles with a probability of 1. You can't provide me anything less than a probability of 1 and expect your claim to hold true.

You need to show, using coordinates, which part of the aeroplane allegedly struck which parts of the light poles (and their coordinates). Reducing your argument to being a 2-sigma confidence interval, based on probability, shows that you can't definitively prove what you claim to be true. It's hardly the same as being 'certain', right?

Still, I'll wait to see what you supply. You need your time, fair enough.

Okay, I'll need the quote of where I claimed a probability of 1 on anything. I had a plant manager ask me once how sure I would need to be before making changes to a process. My answer is the same as I am giving you now. There is no such thing as 100% (probability = 1). For critical systems, I go for 3 sigma (probability = 0.997) and for non-critical 2 sigma (0.95). From quantum mechanics to cosmology, no measurement is ever 100% (there is ALWAYS measurement error and a range).

What you asked for was the point in the FDR where the plane hit the poles. I suspect you are just wasting my time.

And no, giving you a range is not pointless. That is the real world you live with every day. The goal is to narrow that range of certainty to a point where it is practical.

You're going to write a book for me, telling me how the light pole was hit. Now, if you claim that the probability is not 1, then it must be a fiction book that you're writing, right?

Are you now wishing to back-peddle on your claim that the aeroplane hit the light poles because you don't want to associate a probability of 1 to it happening, in your calculations based on the alleged FDR data?

Either the light poles were hit by the aeroplane, or they were not. Unless your flight path shows the coordinates of a part of the aeroplane, hitting the coordinates of the five lights poles, with a probability of 1, then your claim is not satisfied.

You might be able to do so, I don't know. I'm giving you the time to do it. Good luck to you. I know it's a big task, I know the kind of figures that need to be crunched.


Originally posted by 911files

Wrong. In this instance, for you to show that the alleged FDR data supports the five light poles being hit by the aeroplane, then there can not be anything less than a probability of 1 in your analysis. Any margin for error will invalidate your claim.

(Your story about manufacturing processes is not relevant. Normal probability distribution variations are expected from the mean in repeated events. The five light poles being struck is a one-time event that must be demonstrably true, for your claim to hold. You must be able to demonstrate it with a probability of 1.)



Originally posted by 911files

You might be using misleading terms here, 911files. There is no 'measurement' involved in the five light poles being struck by the aeroplane. Either they were struck, or they were not struck.

It either happened and can be supported with a probability of 1 in your data analysis from the alleged FDR, or there will be a probability less than 1, in your data analysis, meaning that the event can not be supported by the alleged FDR data.


Originally posted by 911files

Unless you can show this, then you're probably wasting your own time. You're making the claim that the alleged FDR data will support the five light poles being hit, you will need to demonstrate this with a probability of 1. If you can't state which part of the aeroplane struck which part of the poles, then you weaken your claim. You reduce it to guess work.

Unless the range that you provide does not give a probability of 1 for the aeroplane hitting the five light poles, then your claim will be invalidated.

I'll see what you've got when you end up getting it but I'm not buying any books to read it.

Okay, this is just foolishness now. We 'know' within a range of error where it hit the VDOT camera pole. That is not a probability of 1. It is some position relative to ? and is a measurement and like all measurements is subject to measurement error. The FDR records subframes once every second, so that creates a measurement range of +/- 0.5 seconds right there. Some values are given 4 times a second, so there is a +/- 0.125 second range there at best. Depending upon the speed, that translates to +/- 0.125 nautical miles @ 450 knots per subframe!

So yes tezzajw, the location of the mark and missing rung on the VDOT pole is a measured value. I'm starting to sense that this thread is degrading into foolishness. I have taken the time to respond to you reasonably, but it seems reason is not what you are after.

So let's get this straight.

You claim, for certain, that the aeroplane hit the five light poles, right?

You are going to analyse the alleged FDR data to show that the aeroplane hitting the five light poles is also supported by the FDR data, right?

Unless your analysis shows, with a probability of 1, that the alleged FDR data supports the aeroplane hitting the five light poles, then you can not claim that it certainly does.

It is a meaningless conclusion to state something like: "The data shows the aeroplane hit the light poles within a 2-sigma range".

If the aeroplane hit the light poles, then it must be 100% demonstrably true. Otherwise, the claim that the aeroplane hit the light poles can not be supported with certainty.

I'll wait to see what you come up with.

It's been that way for a while now. Hypothesis P
has been established beyond any reasonable doubt.
There never was any evidence for Hypothesis Q, and
Warren's data have destroyed the already nonsensical
argument for Q from the last altitude recorded by
the FDR found in the wreckage.

So tezzajw and the poseur have started to use words
like "proof" and "certainty" and "exact", as though
Hypothesis P were a mathematical theorem that could
be proved instead of an empirical hypothesis for
which there is overwhelming evidence. The apparent
purposes of this rhetorical device are to increase
the burden of proof beyond all reason, and to shift
attention away from their epic failure to provide
positive evidence for Hypothesis Q or any other
flyover hypothesis.

Nonsense.

Knowing only one point on the aeroplane will not give the geometric orientation of the aeroplane in space. The velocity vector will only give the direction moved by that point on the aeroplane.

For example, take the known point on the aeroplane being the nose cone. The position of the nose cone will be known along with the direction it will be moving. However, you won't know how the wing tips are tilted relative to the nose cone. The wings could be tilted at any angle, the plane could be sideways, it could be pointed towards the Earth, it could be pointed up to the sun - you wouldn't know, as you're only modelling the nose cone point.

The same argument holds if the chosen point was the centre of gravity.

See, now you admit that you need three fixed coordinate points, just like I typed above.

What do you think that you get when you know the roll, pitch and yaw??? That's right, you get every other point on the aeroplane relative to the nose cone (or centre of gravity).

Your, single point-velocity vector model, is not sufficient to model the geometric orientation of the flight path, which is why you need to include roll, pitch and yaw to generate the extra points that I stated were needed.

Three fixed points on the aeroplane are necessary and sufficient to model the geometric orientation of the aeroplane's flight path. Of course, that still doesn't account for slight wing flexing, if two of the points are on the wing tips.

I can't believe that a PhD would get it so wrong.

There is no hypothesis to test. It has been claimed that the five light poles were knocked down by the aeroplane. This must be demonstrably true, without any margin for error in the alleged FDR data.

Either the claim can be supported to show the event happened for certain, or it can not be supported.

I noted that the plane's "velocity vector implies the
approximate direction in which the plane is pointing",
but tezzajw apparently does not understand the meaning
of the word "approximate". He also does not understand
that, to a first approximation, fixed wing aircraft can
only fly forward:

That would be true if we were modelling a video game or
alternative Truther universe in which aircraft can fly
sideways or otherwise perpendicular to the direction in
which they are pointed.

When you or your fellow agents of disinformation think
you have scored a major point by saying the plane could
have been flying sideways, there is indeed little hope
for a sensible thread.
