Discussion: Vector And Turn Analysis Of Observed And Measured Flight Paths Of 9/11 WTC Aircraft

Abstract

Video footage depicts United Airlines Flight 175 (UA 175) impacting World Trade Center tower 2 (WTC 2) on September 11, 2001 in New York City via a trajectory comprised of two separate banked turns. The second turn was apparently not required to generate impact. The first turn, which maintains a constant angle of bank (AoB), is evident at 1.2 miles before impact.[1] Although human control of UA 175’s observed maneuvers cannot be ruled out, the precise coordination of variables such as the selections of a correct bank angle and turn start time for the first turn apparently pose challenges to the unaided human control hypothesis. The observed turn stability favors the use of autopilot operation, either functioning in a conventional course control mode or in Control Wheel Steering (CWS) mode. The probability that either of these two control systems were used is discussed. Flight deck images of United and American airlines 757s and 767s suggest that such CWS functions may have been disabled circa 2001. Constant radius turns utilizing plotted waypoints during commercial aviation operations are routinely supported by augmented GPS navigation service and related commercial Flight Management Systems (FMS) available circa 2001.[2] As will be demonstrated, the implementation of UA 175’s observed 1.2 mile constant radius arc, seconds earlier or later than observed, would apparently result in UA 175 missing WTC 2. Estimates of the likely effect of crosswinds on the approach to WTC 2 are also provided. It is noted that a projected impact via the first observed banked turn would have occurred under crosswind conditions capable of generating between 122 and 134 approximate total feet of lateral displacement from the calculated final position of the aircraft if not affected by such crosswinds. Aircraft distances and other calculations are based on reported aircraft speed for UA 175 of 799 feet per second at impact and measured times to impact [3]. The observed speeds of both attack aircraft were extreme by comparison to the typical speeds of similarly descending aircraft. While creating significantly less response time for possible human hijacker pilot course corrections during final target approaches that would demand superior control surface operation, a general vector analysis considering the final course and speed for each aircraft suggests that the unusually high speeds observed would generate greater accuracy of the aircraft while enroute to their targets, as a result of smaller course deflection angles and ground track displacements, created by existing and potential crosswinds.

9/11 Truth Goes Primetime By Sheila Casey / RCFP / March 22

9/11 Truth Goes Primetime
By Sheila Casey / RCFP

In recent weeks, 9/11 truth has burst into the mainstream media in a way not seen in the nine years since the attacks. Although much of the coverage has been in the form of dismissive hit pieces, the fact that the controversy about 9/11 is being covered at all has the effect of legitimizing challenges to the official story.

In our media-saturated culture, pundits and publishers define the boundaries of many people’s worlds. If it wasn’t covered by their favorite news outlet, many people assume, it must not have happened – or if it did happen, it’s simply not important. Then, when the average news consumers talk to their co-workers or neighbors, who also get their news from the same sources, each has their limited view of the world reinforced. They exist in an echo chamber, where certain ideas are repeated endlessly and others die a quiet death from neglect.

9/11: Some guys have all the luck

Jim Pierce, a cousin of President Bush, sees the South Tower of the WTC hit from the nearby Millennium Hotel. Pierce is the managing director of the AON Corporation, an insurance company with offices in WTC 2. He had arranged a business conference, to be held on the tower’s 105th floor this morning. However, the previous night, the conference was moved to the Millennium Hotel because the group was too large for the original room. According to a book by former First Lady Barbara Bush, Pierce later learns that 12 people are in the room where the meeting was originally planned to take place when the South Tower is hit, and only one of them survives. Boston Globe, 2001; Ananova, 9/18/2001; Newsweek, 10/27/2003 Another AON Corporation meeting is taking place on the 105th floor of the South Tower, run by business executive Mary Wieman. Of about 50 participants in attendance, only six are able to escape. [New York Times, 12/17/2001; USA Today, 9/2/2002]

9/11 Truth candidate for U.S. Senate

I recently became aware of Richard Curtis, PhD, a candidate for U.S. Senate from the State of Washington

His website: http://www.richardcurtisphd.com/index.html

"Based on the philosophy that the current government "is not working for ordinary Americans," philosophy professor Richard Curtis is planning to challenge U.S. Sen. Patty Murray in the November election. Running as an independent, Curtis says he is backed by a "historic" coalition of people who identify with the Green, Socialist, Libertarian, and Democratic parties."

His perspective on 9/11: http://www.seattlepi.com/opinion/270284_connellyrebut16.html

"The commission's conclusions and recommendations should be totally rejected. Its story is full of lies, distortions and omissions of fact. Following are two of the more than 40 reasons why the official story about what happened on 9/11 is untrue."

Richard Curtis, Ph.D., is an adjunct professor of philosophy at Seattle University and a member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth; www.st911.org.

As always, two simple rules for participating in this campaign:

1) Talk only about World Trade Center Building 7

2) Be courteous and respectful

Each morning NYC CAN informs the council members’ offices that anyone who is disrespectful, or who mentions other aspects of 9/11, is trying to sabotage the legitimate call for a proper investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. And to ensure that opponents of truth do not undermine our effort, we will need each and every one of you to get involved and drown out their vitriolic voice with courtesy, clarity and honesty.

Tea Party Politics: Flirting with Fascism

This morning a friend forwarded me a strange article from the CUNY (City University New York) Graduate Center's paper.
The piece is pretty startling in at once it's admission of the failures of 'mainstream' journalism as well as the role of the Federal Reserve in undermining the economy (to at least a partial extent), but the author completely gets wrong that the Tea Party movement was usurped, who the important figures are in the 9/11 Truth movement, and, well, everything to do w/ 9/11 truth for certain.

I can't tell whether or not it's deliberate misinformation or not, and I don't have any time right now, but thought I'd share it with you fine people here who might be better equipped to set him straight.

Paul Craig Roberts’ final essay: Corporate media is propaganda; serves US police state and oligarchs

hyperlinks live at source: http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-18425-LA-County-Nonpartisan-Examiner~y2010m3d26-Paul-Craig-Roberts-final-essay-Corporat...

Paul Craig Roberts, one of the sanest voices of the Reagan administration and lauded academic and government professional, is retiring his public essays. His last, reprinted below, summarizes his observation of government, media, and economics as criminal enterprises of “leadership” to create an American police state, veiled with psychopathically empty rhetoric of legality and American values.

Their principle policies are unlawful Wars of Aggression for empire and profit, casino capitalism for their own oligarchies, and crushing the US Constitution to pre-emptively remove the public’s capacity to dissent if, and this is a big if, they ever awake from their propaganda-induced collective stupor. This anti-American agenda is protected by continuous lies of omission and commission by corporate media; a revealed propaganda machine.

Quote: "We live in a time, when, as you know, the United States finds itself engaged in several armed conflicts. As the President has noted, one conflict, in Iraq, is winding down. He also reminded us that the conflict in Afghanistan is a “conflict that America did not seek, one in which we are joined by forty-three other countries… in an effort to defend ourselves and all nations from further attacks.”

Any news on NIST WTC7 data?

Does anyone know what the situation is regarding the NIST WTC7 simulation data?

There were two terabytes mentioned back in February 2009 by AE911...were these files obtained and uploaded to archive.org?
http://911blogger.com/node/19369#comments

It seems NIST also recently released 8,910 files to Ronald Brookman of Cryptome, I wonder if he will make these available? They withheld 3,370 files for reasons of 'public safety', including the 'connection models' and all 'results files'.
http://cryptome.org/wtc-nist-wtc7-no.pdf

EDIT: The data which accompanied the letter above is available: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SQMZ94R0

I can't find a reference to either data set on this site about the simulation, though there are links to two (unreadable?) LS-DYNA files found on a NIST ftp site (under 'World Trade Center 7 Computer Simulations')

Yet Another “9/11 Was An Inside Job” Song

You Tube
January 12, 2010

ScootleRoyale — An original song. Although primarily about 9/11 it does touch on some other issues such as the dumbing down of the public, the bombings of 3/11 and 7/7, the global warming/carbon tax scam, the central banking scam, fluoridated water, toxins in vaccines, the Kennedy assassination, the false left-right paradigm, the Rockefellers, the Saudi Corporation Ptech, swine flu, martial law, the police state and Internet 2.

I can’t sing but thanks to the magic of computers that’s not a problem. I wanted to get my friend who can sing to do it but she didn’t want to. The vocals were manually tuned note by note using Melodyne Studio and Adobe Audition – A process that took two days! I’m not a very good sound editor so the audio isn’t perfectly mastered but it’s as good as I could get it
