Flight 77 and the Pentagon

I wrote the following article for my own blog 11 May last year- www.truxtop.blogspot.com. Like most people, the whole 911 episode was so overwhelming that it took awhile for the shock to wear off, but a couple of things bothered me. Mostly I thought about the Pentagon and the fact that there was little or no mention of the passengers, no lists, no group of parents/family members of the passengers, as there are in the WTC and Pennsylvania crashes.
Another item about the plane crashes was there was seemingly no reconstruction, no report about the airplane itself as is usually the case in airliner crahses where they assemble the pieces in a warehouse somewhere. Also, it seemed to be pretty damned good flying for "student pilots".

I am new to this site, so perhaps I will find more information about those two items here.

Since my firm was in the business of staffing high-level engineering and construction professionals, we had a good idea of which firms were getting which contracts, and knew that a contract had been let for renovations to the Pentagon. It turns out that being able to hit the Pentagon where they hit the Pentagon was more than luck.

I admit to thinking that there was something unsettling about the whole American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon aftermath. It appeared that there was not enough wreckage of either the 767 or the building. It made that particular aspect of the 9/11 trauma ripe for speculation as to what happened to the plane. Why wasnt there more damage to the building? Did a plane actually crash? Was it a hoax?
