New York: The BBC managed to announce the collapse of the building before it happened, adding to the confusion of the day. The third building was not even mentioned in the official 9/11 report. An alarm was sounded for rescue workers to evacuate the area prior to its collapse.
The third building to fall at free fall speed on September 11, 2001, was WTC7. Though it was not hit by any plane on 9/11 yet it imploded on itself similar to the other two towers, which clearly, indicated a perfect demolition job by experts.
The building’s collapse was mistakenly reported by the media ahead of time. The BBC managed to announce the collapse of the building before it happened, adding to the confusion of the day.
The third building was not even mentioned in the official 9/11 report. WTC7 housed a command center and other important offices.
An alarm was sounded for rescue workers to evacuate the area prior to its collapse.
15-years after the attacks on September 11th, the European Scientific Journal, a publication of the European Scientific Institute (ESI), published an article titled “15 Years Later: On the Physics of High-Rise Building Collapses,” in which they analyzed the collapse of all three World Trade Center buildings.
The results of their findings continue to indicate that the WTC towers were destroyed by controlled demolition, and the fact that this controversial topic was covered by a publication that boasts an editorial committee from reputable colleges and universities around the world (despite the article’s disclaimer), can be considered yet another small victory for 9/11 Truthers.
The study was written in collaboration by Steven Jones of Brigham Young University (now retired), Robert Korol of McMaster University – a Mechanical Design Engineer in the aerospace industry, Anthony Szamboti, and Ted Walter of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. The highly-sourced study breaks down the scientific evidence while revealing the discrepancies in NIST’s official report.
One of the most important testimonies on the collapse of the World Trade Towers that was brought to attention in the study comes from the head structural engineer of the towers, John Skilling. It is apparently not enough for skeptics should have at least considered the expertise of one of the men who built the WTC towers.
In a statement made to The Seattle Times by Skilling:
“We looked at every possible thing we could think of that could happen to the buildings, even to the extent of an airplane hitting the side, however back in those days people didn’t think about terrorists very much.” He continues, “Our analysis indicated the biggest problem would be the fact that all the fuel (from the airplane) would dump into the building. There would be a horrendous fire. A lot of people would be killed. The building structure would still be there. However, I’m not saying that properly applied explosives – shaped explosives – of that magnitude could not do a tremendous amount of damage. I would imagine that if you took the top expert in that type of work and gave him the assignment of bringing these buildings down with explosives, I would bet that he could do it.”
As stated in the study: “In other words, Skilling believed the only mechanism that could bring down the Twin Towers was controlled demolition.”
Not to forget that a steel-framed high-rise building was never completely collapsed due to fire. And yet on September 11, 2001,threebuildings supposedly collapsed in this manner, one of which wasn’t even hit by a plane.
“It bears repeating that fires have never caused the total collapse of a steel-framed high-rise before or since 9/11. Did we witness an unprecedented event three separate times on September 11, 2001? The NIST reports, which attempted to support that unlikely conclusion, fail to persuade a growing number of architects, engineers, and scientists,”the authors concluded.
