The jet went down only minutes after take off at around 12.05pm and witnesses said it was disgorging fuel in the moments before it crashed.
It sounds like they got rid of the fuel to keep damage to a minimum.

The conpiracy loons are always on prowl for plane crashes for "proof" of their theories
See the neat crater left by XYZ Airlines crash
Why didn't United 93 leave such a crater....?
Or see all the debris from ABC airlines crash
Why dont (American 11, United 175, American 77) see all that debris lying around
Give you hint: Probably because most of the debris ended up INSIDE the building.......

I know it's been posted, but speed and mass are some of the biggest factors here in the amount of energy translated back into the plane during the crash. Energy goes up exponentially as speed increases, and on 9/11, the plane at the Pentagon was going upwards of 400mp/h. Maybe I'm missing something, but I highly doubt that the pilots of the F-18 were going full-throttle, and I'm reading from some of the responses here that they dumped a lot of the fuel before ejecting and letting the plane crash.
There really is no comparison. Besides, there was a lot of debris found at the Pentagon, regardless of the people who think it was all planted.

Most certainly. It's a very old and tiring topic for me. I was being facetious..thought you picked up on it.
