191. Not For Ordinary DEMO Where Big Pieces Are Found, Or Free Fall Seen
Edited on Thu Aug-18-05 12:40 PM by Christophera
What you say is true mikelewis, for an ordinary demolition. Placement is everything, as well as distribution.

What we see here,



if it were a collapse caused by minimal charges, would be comprised pf many big pieces that were separated by a loss of structural integrity.
What is seen at the top of the descending tower is sand and gravel arcing up and out. This is essentially a continuous series of explosions that continued to the ground.
