9/11 No-Planes Fail Blog: Dr. Judy Wood

9/11 Cartoon Physics

Why Dr. Judy Wood Laughed While Watching the Attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001

In an interview with conspiracy theorist Richard D. Hall of RICHPLANET TV, Dr. Judy Wood stated that she "smirked" while watching the live coverage of the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11 with colleagues at Clemson University. Dr. Wood says that she found the event humorous because it was similar to watching a Looney Tunes Roadrunner cartoon (never mind that hundreds of real people were trapped in the buildings, burning and jumping to their deaths).

Interpreting the Boeing-767 Deceleration During Impact with the WTC Tower

Center of Mass Versus Tail-end Motion, and Instantaneous Versus Average Velocity

By Dr. Gregory S. Jenkins, Ph.D. Physics (April 11, 2007)

Many people who support the notion that airplanes did not collide with the WTC towers erroneously apply physics to substantiate their claim. The following letter attempts to clarify the difference between the ‘airplane deceleration’ (which can only be well described by the center of mass motion) versus tail deceleration. The concept of average versus instantaneous velocity is also highlighted. I use the airplane impact analysis published by NIST in NCSTAR1-2 and NCSTAR1-2B to vividly illustrate these concepts, and show that NIST clearly reports a 70% decrease in velocity just after the tail section passes through the outer wall, not 0% as alleged by Morgan Reynolds3 and others, representing a net loss in kinetic energy of 91%

The "Nose-Out" Fallacy

It's Not the Nose of the Plane

If the CGI "no-plane theory" is correct and it's the nose of a computer generated plane animation that can be seen exiting the opposite side of the tower in the FOX Chopper footage, then why doesn't the nose hold it's shape? The alleged nose can clearly be seen morphing and expanding as it exits. An animated plane graphic would not do that, especially if it was an editing blunder that was never intended to be seen. 

Below: The exiting "nose" is compared with the plane's nose prior to impact.

Conspiracy Theory FAIL: The 9/11 Video Fakery No-Planes Theory (The Lies of Ace Baker)

9/11 no planes

Below you'll find a list of some of the false claims, distortions, and misrepresentations found in Ace Baker's (a.k.a. Collin Alexander) specious 9/11 conspiracy film series entitled 9/11 - The Great American Psy-Opera (specifically chapters 06 What Planes? and 07 The Key) which asserts that the video footage of the airplane attacks on the World Trade Center (all of it) is fake--fabrications of the American Government and complicit news media as part of a false-flag operation to deceive Americans and fellow world citizens. 

These slickly produced videos seem to have misled a lot of people on YouTube (receiving over a half million views on one mirrored channel and with overwhelmingly positive responses). On the surface, the presented arguments may sound persuasive, as if they're based on "facts". In truth, they hinge on erroneous assumptions, fallacious reasoning, and dishonest manipulations of the evidence.

Ace Baker and his phony "Key".
Ironically, the haircut is real.

Published Scientific Research on the Physics of the World Trade Center Airplane Impacts

·         Wierzbicki, T., Xue, L., and Hendry-Brogan, M. (2002). "Aircraft Impact Damage", The Towers Lost and Beyond - A collection of essays on the WTC by researchers at theMassachusetts Institute of Technology, Ed. Eduardo Kausel, pages 31-63.
"The  external  columns  were  impacted  at  a  very  high  speed  and  the  process  is controlled mainly by local inertia.  As the fuselage and wings cut through the steel facade of  the Towers, the affected portions of the column sheared off.  It was found that the momentum transfer between the airframe and the first barrier of external columns was responsible for most of the energy dissipated in this phase.  The energy to shear off the column constituted only a small fraction of that energy."

"Using the exact dynamic solution in the membrane deformation mode, the critical impact velocity to fracture the impacted flange was calculated to be 155 m/s for both flat and round impacting mass. Therefore, the wing would easily cut through the outer column."

"Based on the results of the analysis using a detailed finite element model, the damage situation of each structural component around impacted stories and the destroyed components were evaluated. As a result, the damage situation of the outer wall of WTC1 and WTC2 and the velocity reduction curve of the aircraft for WTC2 showed good agreement with the actual phenomena."

"When the aircraft impacts the building at the top speed (240m/s) with a full fuel tank and the exterior columns have the original column thickness of 9.5mm., it is observed that all columns fail and the aircraft penetrates through the exterior wall. It was found that about 46% of the initial kinetic energy of the aircraft was used to damage columns. The minimum impact velocity of the aircraft to just penetrate the exterior columns would be 130m/s. It was also found that a Boeing 767 traveling at top speed would not penetrate exterior columns of the WTC if the columns were thicker than 20mm."
