    WT 7 - New York - September 11th

    First of all, I would like to apologize for bringing up this subject, but I came across something really, really odd and I would love to hear if any other people have noticed this as well...

    As some of you already know, a fireworks show in Beijing, China, went horribly wrong recently when an unfinished building (skyscraper) caught fire and burnt like a huge torch for a full day.

    The building never came down, but was damaged...

    This fire was well documented in several clips on youtube.

    The strange thing coming up, is that this fire is compared to World Trade 7 which came down at 5:25 in the afternoon on September 11th in New York.

    Take a look at some of the footage from that day, from the collapse of WT 7. When it collapses, it only has a few floors at fire, the entire building is not like a torch and it comes down into a 3-story high mountain of rubble, without doing any damage to the buildings next door on either side.

    Looking at the footage, it is as if WT7 actually IMPLODES....

    Now, this to me, is so strange, that I could not omit asking about it... does anyone have any takes, comments or anything on this?





    Why isn't the unfinished skyscraper in Beijing coming down after being a giant torch for the whole night, while WT7 apparently implodes onto itself with only a few fires on a few floors?

    As I recall...(and honestly it's 11pm and I'm too tired to research it, sorry!!!) WT7 was heavily damaged structurally by the collapse of whichever tower it was closest to...so before the fires started in WT7, it was already compromised. Thinking back to the day, the news reports kept "waiting" for WTC7 to collapse. Something keeps sticking in my mind about that...I remember reports of "imminent collapse" for hours and hours...I think because some Port Authority headquarters were in WTC7?? I just remember that, when it finally came down, it wasn't a surprise.....

      Thank you so much E.. that is a good point, it could have been weakened.

      It's just strange the way that it collapsed, no, I'm not looking for a sensational claim of something mysterious going on, but the way it fell, was so incredibly strange when I looked at it, and I ached to ask about it.

      From the standpoint of the above clips, naturally, we don't see the back of the building.

        Collapse of WT7

        I have included a link to an excellent analysis of the collapse at http://www.civil.usyd.edu.au/wtc.shtml which I believe clearly explains the mechanism of the collapse of WT1 & 2.

        I believe that the nature of the structure - a rigid "hollow tube" of closely spaced steel columns with floor trusses extending across to a central core - caused the collapsing tower to be largely constrained within the hollow tube as it fell. The first tower came down practically straight, whereas the second tower was leaning to one side as it came down.

        Had the towers fallen sideways, I guess that there would have been additional immense damage and casualties as it struck adjacent buildings.

        WT7 collapse seems to have been initiated by damage from debris from the collapsing North Tower, and by fires on many of the floors which burned throughout the afternoon until the collapse at 5:20pm. There is a good analysis on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7_World_Trade_Center

              With the memories of this date, some years ago.... National Geographic shared this article today:

              12 chilling images: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2...ongings-911/#/

              - from that article, I also found the link to these images: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/re...emory-remains/

                    That boatlift link was interesting... thanks for sharing!

                    BTW... this may have been asked before, and answered, but... was there any cruiseships in NY that day?
