9/11: WTC 7 video compilation (unfinished project)



No sound or is it just me ?
Looks like a good project ,but please don't cut out Amy Goodman :)

It's amazing what can happen if a file cabinet catches fire.

Thanks Joe for putting this

Thanks Joe for putting this up! I never blog enough really, and I apologize for there being no sound, this was simply an error I made while compiling the video. It was a spur of the moment decision to upload this, and an abandoned video project really. There will hopefully be a better video finished soon when I have time. I actually recommend the featured video on my channel instead. Any questions just ask. Thanks Joe!

Is that every "known" Video of 7's Demolition?

If Not Me? Who? If Not Now? When?

Yes I believe so, except for

Yes I believe so, except for Richard Siegel's footage. He is such a stickler for copyright of his footage, so I avoid using it. I am aware of 19 videos altogethor, one of which may be just a cropped version, I can't be sure. The first clip shown here, may be the same as the infamous PBS "Pull It" clip, just a wider version, I pulled the wide version off of CNN.com, the day NIST released their report on Building 7, you can view that over here: http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2008/08/22/feyerick.wtc.cnn

No, you don't want to use Richard Siegel's footage.

Thanks for all your excellent work.

Great Job..

There are excellent shots of the smoke trails coming up from under the "kink" at the 1:12 mark. I think it would be even better if you appended NIST's computer generated version. I know Richard Gage likes to use his side by side video of a known CD and WTC7. But a good side by side with the poor excuse of a simulation done by NIST would be a real jaw dropper I think. I like to point out to people to the places in the simulation where NIST has floors collapsing on the other side of building away from column 79 with no absolutely no reason for it.

And to be sure we are all clear and on the same page about NIST's excuse for free-fall, it is here.
http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/factsheet/wtc_qa_082108.html (pasted below for convenience)

My favorite part is the single pixel used to start their 5.4 second collapse. Do they not realize that if it took 5.4 seconds to fall 18 stories, then that leaves only 1.1 seconds for it to fall the remaining 29 stories in their 6.5 second collapse time at a time when the say it is decelerating? Oh and btw, I am having a hard time finding their simulation on their website, does someone have a link or am I not the only one with this issue?

In a video, it appears that WTC 7 is descending in free fall, something that would not occur in the structural collapse that you describe. How can you ignore basic laws of physics?

In the draft WTC 7 report (released Aug. 21, 2008; available at http://wtc.nist.gov/media/NIST_NCSTAR_1A_for_public_comment.pdf), NIST stated that the north face of the building descended 18 stories (the portion of the collapse visible in the video) in 5.4 seconds, based on video analysis of the building collapse. This time period is 40 percent longer than the 3.9 seconds this process would have taken if the north face of the building had descended solely under free fall conditions. During the public comment period on the draft report, NIST was asked to confirm this time difference and define the reasons for it in greater detail.

To further clarify the descent of the north face, NIST recorded the downward displacement of a point near the center of the roofline from first movement until the north face was no longer visible in the video. Numerical analyses were conducted to calculate the velocity and acceleration of the roofline point from the time-dependent displacement data. The instant at which vertical motion of the roofline first occurred was determined by tracking the numerical value of the brightness of a pixel (a single element in the video image) at the roofline. This pixel became brighter as the roofline began to descend because the color of the pixel started to change from that of the building façade to the lighter color of the sky....

The analyses of the video (both the estimation of the instant the roofline began to descend and the calculated velocity and acceleration of a point on the roofline) revealed three distinct stages characterizing the 5.4 seconds of collapse:

* Stage 1 (0 to 1.75 seconds): acceleration less than that of gravity (i.e., slower than free fall).
* Stage 2 (1.75 to 4.0 seconds): gravitational acceleration (free fall)
* Stage 3 (4.0 to 5.4 seconds): decreased acceleration, again less than that of gravity

This analysis showed that the 40 percent longer descent time—compared to the 3.9 second free fall time—was due primarily to Stage 1, which corresponded to the buckling of the exterior columns in the lower stories of the north face. During Stage 2, the north face descended essentially in free fall, indicating negligible support from the structure below. This is consistent with the structural analysis model which showed the exterior columns buckling and losing their capacity to support the loads from the structure above. In Stage 3, the acceleration decreased as the upper portion of the north face encountered increased resistance from the collapsed structure and the debris pile below.

Truth will out..

Good to 'see' you! You were one of the first YouTubers that I looked forward to watching what video you posted next, starting over 3 years ago. I think you've got the best compilation of vids showing the obvious controlled demolition of the towers.

Thanks a lot Bruno! It would

Thanks a lot Bruno! It would certainly be a pleasure to actually someday meet you and many other people I've talked to, keep up the good fight everyone, thank you all for the generous support. Best wishes all!


I really like how the second clip pans and follows the streamers racing away at high-velocity... Very revealing. Thanks Xenomorph911 for all your work.

Great compilation

I think one of the best videos starts at 1:28, which shows the smooth destruction and the streamers of smoke.

If I wish to save the compilation to my own computer, what should I do?

Try this Vesa...

Click the video to go to YouTube site.
Copy the URL (address bar).
Go to http://keepvid.com/
Paste the URL into the Download box.

It will look like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZsA3xb2kOA&feature=player_embedded#

You can then save it as an mp4 via the pop-up box to your hard drive.

Alternatively, a tool like Replay Media Catcher can be very handy.

You can grab the high

Thanks Vesa, you can grab the high quality original DivX over here, it's 278 megabytes: http://xenomorph.s3.amazonaws.com/WTC7_Demolition_Clips.avi (save to a folder) For streaming youtube videos I also use Keepvid to save files. For other web streaming videos such as news sites or other, I use Replay Media Catcher, or Replay AV, by Applian Technologies: http://applian.com/ Others (including youtube) can even just be retrieved from your temporary internet files.

Xenomorph911 Thanks again for all the footage you salvage!
