Default Your Opinion On 9/11 Piloting

Hi,
I am not a pilot. I worked across the street from World Trade on 9/11, and witnessed the whole thing.

One thing has bothered me about the official narrative....and that is how plausible is it that the hijackers, with no actual flight experience in commercial jet aircraft (other than simulators) could line up on the buildings, while moving at 》500 knots, and score perfect, direct hits.

It seems to me, going that fast, the slightest incorrect variance in the flight path would end up in a miss...and that the buildings were, in context, a mighty small target to hit at that speed. But, what do I know, since like I said, I am not a pilot.

So, the question has bothered me ever since. What do you folks say? Was it an amazing feat of flying for people with nothing but simulator time to pull off the direct hits? Or, is it plausible that one could do it, with so little training and experience?

Buildings are big and 500 knots isn't that fast.

That's about as much time as needs be spent on this topic.

Could you drive your car into a telephone poll at 55mph with no obstacles impeding you? Not a whole lot of difference.

Rosie O'Donnell planned the 9/11 attacks. She also conspired to have the WTC buildings made out of plastic because we all know you can't melt steel. (Like with heat, like when they make it.)

No, it was not an amazing feat of flying.

Go spend 30 bucks on a flight simulator and try it yourself. That's what they did to "practice."

Not sure if I am ****ed off at this thread or not.

I think it would be fairly easy for a non pilot. Try it on Microsoft flight simulator. Now the 270 degree corkscrew descending turn into the Pentagon, that would take quite a bit of skill.

I just want to know when I can get in on all of these conspiracies, the chemtrails, 9/11, the climate change coverup. Unfortunately, no one has approached me, so it's not just a cover-up, it's like a triple-cover up using secret double agent lizard overlords!

Pilots for 9/11 Truth I feel raises some very good questions and has done quite a bit of research. It also boasts an extensive members list who are extremely qualified. In turn there are many 9/11 groups/organizations for almost all professions involved that day from Firefighters, Police, Military members, you name it. There are enormous things about 9/11 that without question don't add up to what the "official story" was.

For the typical knee-jerk reactionaries that are going to flame - go right ahead. I could care less. The bottom line is I can look at the evidence, ask questions and critically think. I can assure you all if you actually look at the evidence vs what "supposedly happened" you don't have to be very smart to clearly see the glaring contradictions and discrepancies.

Carry on.
