Businessman raising £1m to recreate 9/11 to prove conspiracy theories true or false 'once and for all'

[I don't know what to make of this . . .]

An American-born businessman wants to raise £1m to stage a bizarre recreation of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York.

Paul Salo, who now lives in Thailand, has said he wants to purchase a 'Boeing 747' and smash it into the side of an empty building in the countryside at 500mph.

He describes it as an 'important project' to prove conspiracy theories about the terror atrocities 'once and for all'.

Mr Salo is hoping to crowdfund the event and is selling 'front-row seats' to the outlandish spectacle in Thailand for $5000 each (£3,500).

In a video promoting the 'reconstruction', he said: "If you doubt anything about 9/11 we want to blast this to smithereens or we want to prove you completely right.

"We're going to purchase a 747 or equivalent aircraft that's about to go out of service, we're going to fill it full of jet fuel, we're going to purchase a building that's about to be torn down in the countryside... and we're going to crash it at 500 miles per hour into that building."

. . .

a rank smell

imo, this can't end well, given what one hears from Salo's own mouth on the video.
No mention of scientific method, independent monitors, collaboration with identified engineering or physics advisers.
A random building (in the Thai countryside) is never going to present the same specs.
The main takeaway is that Salo is selling tickets for a fortune (an amount of money that can represent a year's salary for the poorest of the poor in Thailand).

Fundraising effort terminated

Indiegogo has reportedly terminated this guy's fundraising campaign, so I guess this means his experiment is probably now off. See:

Where was he going to get all the nano-thermite?


He'd need an amateur pilot too

I guess that could be a bit tricky!

This guy would also ideally need to find a pilot who'd never flown a jet airplane before. This pilot would then have to fly at an altitude of around 30,000 feet and successfully locate the target building, without any assistance from air traffic control.

It sounds impossible, but it is supposedly a fairly straightforward task: It happened three times in a row on September 11, 2001, according to the official 9/11 story.
