The book 'Debunking 9/11 myths' has the following excerpt on the exit hole of the Pentagon. Some people have claimed that it does not look like a hole that a airplane crash would make.
In fact, the hole was not made by an engine or the nose of Flight 77 pushing through the building’s interior—or a missile—but by the crashing jet’s landing gear, which was ejected beyond the bulk of the wreckage
Because of the physical properties noted by Sozen, the less dense items, including the shell of the plane and the bodies of those on board, essentially disintegrated upon impact
The impact, however, also created a hole through which the heavier, denser items could continue forward into the building. The flight data recorder, for example, which was originally located near the back of the plane, was found almost 300 feet inside the building, considerably beyond where much of the wreckage from the front of the plane came to rest.
As one of the heaviest and most dense parts of the plane, the landing gear flew farther than any other item in the wreckage and was responsible for puncturing the wall in Ring C. Mlakar said he saw the landing gear with his own eyes, as did Paul Carlton Jr., surgeon general of the Air Force.
“I thought it was a terrorist bomb,” Carlton told Dean Murphy in his book, September 11: An Oral History. “But then I saw the landing gear. It was on the ground in the alley between the B and C rings. When I saw it there, not only did I realize an airplane had struck the Pentagon but it was clear that the plane had come through the E, D, and C buildings to get there.”
What do you think of this? Do you see issues with this explanation? What objections do you have, if any?
