21. clarification/correction
Edited on Wed Mar-08-06 03:07 PM by spooked911
After consulting with maps for about two hours and finding a version of her plane picture with more foreground in it which helped me identify that front building*, I have concluded the angle for the photos was consistent with being in the water (on a ferry) about one mile away from the WTC, just south-southeast.

Of course I still have questions:
1) wouldn't other tourists on her boat have cameras, didn't they get pictures of the plane?
2) it is a damn good shot for an amateur with a borrowed digital camera on a moving boat
3) the explosion picture in particular looks amazingly professional
4) did she really just get lucky to get this shot?
5) did she have that plane in her original photo or could it have been added in later?


One interesting thing is this video:

must have been taken from the same boat, because it has the EXACT angle and the before impact shot is virtually identical.

The fireball picture is different though...
