Still image from a plane hitting a brick wall
Advertisements [?]
This post is to address the contention that any plane that would have struck the WTC towers would not have simply disappeared into the building but would have displayed some sort of highly visible signs of damage to the structure *outside* of the contact region, ie, wings or verticle stabilizer flying off, fuselage crumpling etc.

This is a widely seen video of an F4 Phantom being launched into a solid brick wall. The plane absolutely disintegrates as the collison progresses.

Yet if you grab a frame of the fuselage after the nose has contacted the wall, you can see that the structure looks to be very much intact even as the nose section is 'disappearing' into the wall. The fuselage appears to be perfectly straight and the wings and verticle stabilizer aren't flying off or deforming. The airframe looks like it simply disappears into the wall.

As the plane just contacts the wall...

and another as the wall is well into the cockpit region...
