10. Who repealed the laws of Physics?
Check out this video.

The clip playing below looks like the initial segment from the full video.
The full video shows that the radio tower moves to the right, then moves to the left, on its way down. i.e. A clockwise rotation then a counterclockwise rotation. The radio tower appears to stay rigidly connected to the roof, which implies that a correction was probably made in the explosion sequence to keep the collapse motion vertical. I assume they used feedback sensors for this, rather than a visual response (from the helicopter).

Also, I believe the radio tower begins moving, first, before the floors start going down. (This implies that the core columns were destroyed, first, not the outside columns.)

It looks like simultaneous explosions were initiated above the "boundary floor," then the "boundary floor" explodes. (By "boundary floor," I'm referring to that specific floor that is burnt, around the perimeter of the building.) Perhaps the plan was for the plane to hit a few floors lower, in the boundary floor instead of above it. That way, it would look like the part above the damage collapsed into the damaged region, initiating the appearance of a chain reaction. This would be similar to "Case 3" in my post #8, above.

The building face in the foreground (left face) is where the plane went in.
