Is this a military jet flying between the Towers?
This is video taken by ABC from the ground when the first tower started to collapse.

http://wtc.nac.net/www.phatmax.net/video/twc_towers_col...

Take note of the frames from :22 sec to :24 secs into the video. There is definitely a stealth(?) type jet moving from right to left across the screen.

If this is a military jet, then we now know that someone got to NYC by 9:58 AM.

However, what's more important is the question, what the hell is this thing doing so low and seemingly slow, so close to the buildings just when the collapse begins?

1. You might want to delete this thread...
The "stealth" is actually part of a building being covered with smoke.

2. This is definitely not smoke
There is a solid triangle shaped object that appears in those three frames in the upper right.

3. you should be more careful
with the word "definitely" ...

Your stealth fighter has clearly discernible windows, like an apartment building. A few seconds later (28 ff) you can see other, very similar triangular shapes, in this case it is even more obvious that it's the upper right corner of a building behind smoke.

4. Okay, the corner of a building is more likely
the movement seems to be from the cameraman.

Thanks for taking a look.

5. Naahhhh
Bob and Bri's video from last month "what we saw" at 17.20 - there's definitely a fighter jet, moving quickly from right to left on their video after the first tower has collapsed but before the second one has.

6. This is an excerpt from that video

I thought it might not be real, but I checked the video and it is, but I think it is just helicopters. You know, it's absurd that there were no fighter planes after the first "impact" absolutely absurd.

7. Don't you think it's odd that
they merge that next scene over it? It is definitely a fighter jet, though, you can even hear it.

8. That vague slow moving aircraft
Is there at 03.07, 11.47, 11.53 & 20.33.

The fighter jet is more interesting though.
