I'll pick flight data record electronics since it's packed in a titanium case which can withstand thousands
of g's of impact and thousands of degrees of heat.
These specs have been employed since the early 90's
Crash Impact Test -- It has been agreed that 3400gs for 6.5 ms would be required to meet most accident scenarios. This test is actually performed with a cannon. A Fairchild CVR has survived a crash that was estimated to be more than 6000 gs.
Fire Test -- The devices are subjected to 1100 degrees Centigrade for 60 minutes, then undergo 10 hours at 260 degrees Centigrade. Because of its outstanding fire survival record, the Fairchild Model A100CVR was used as the model to insure mandated standards could be obtained. The very latest FAA standards require the fire test to be expanded to 1 hour at 1100 degrees Centigrade. which all solid state models of L-3 Recorders meet or exceed.
Oops, did I mention the flight data recorder is solid state? That means there are no moving parts inside to
break like a DVD player.edit on 15-11-2010 by turbofan because: fix quote tags
all film confiscated from the servo (gas station i think you call it), that would have shown the plane hitting the pentagon. fbi apparently showed up just after and took all footage from any camera even near the area. ? why.

That kind of made me facepalm. After all, NOT A SINGLE official story engineering paper/article has ever said that steel was melting in the towers.
Why would the owner of WTC7 have the authority to "Pull-it?" Should it not be the battalion chief's?

The way the truthers are raping the tragedy of Edna Cintron is literally dancing in the blood of a victim of 9/11 for their sick conspiracy claims and I find this offensive and self serving, not to mention ghoulish. It's one thing to think it's funny to accuse everyone and their hampster of being secret gov't agents, but THIS is crossing the line IMHO
