The obvious question: What was the date and time of the pictured video? Its annoying these people claimed the video was taken after the crash and then left out the date and time. Important information if you are trying to prove a point!
Yes, this has come up often over the years. I have used Flight Explorer since before 9/11 and captured the same image.
The way Flight Explorer worked then was to update the screen data every minute. This did not mean EVERY flight was updated with real-time data; sometimes data for any particular flight was not updated for several minutes. Also, sometimes there were data communication glitches. Also, the data was in real time, not delayed 5 minutes as it is now as a result of 9/11.
Flight Explorer was programmed to "fill in the gaps" by using a simple algorithm that used each flight's last known position, speed, direction of travel, and altitude to project a flight's next position IF real data was not present at a particular update. In this way, Flight Explorer was compensating for data dropouts and the lack of regular minute-to-minute real time data.
The last real position and data for UA 175 was after it turned in New Jersey and was pointing to WTC 2. Of course, it hit WTC 2 and no real data existed after that. But, based on that last data in New Jersey, Flight Explorer projected UA175's next position as being over southeastern Connecticut, given the speed and direction it was flying at the time of the last real data received.
The direction of that projected path (when you see a closeup) put it going right through the location of WTC 2. See :www.911myths.com... for the flight path.
9/11 Truthers keep bringing this subject up and it keeps getting explained. Nonetheless Truthers can't let go. It's funny that Flight Explorer released the data originally and Truthers think they FE "slipped up."
So, Truthers, let go. This has been explained to death for years.
