WTC2 Aircraft Impact Orientation Studies
The case of WTC2
The blue plane represents the NIST claim of aircraft impact angle compared to the actual aircraft.
For the NIST, problems with the WTC2 analysis begin with a rather sizable mistake in determining the aircraft impact angle.
From the study:
"Even at this point, prior to finalising the specific camera and additional building positioning, an error in the NIST value of at least 7.5 degrees has been identified.
If a camera placement is determined within a 100ft error of margin, the NIST angle is out by over 7 degrees.
If a camera placement is determined within a 10ft error of margin, the NIST angle is out by over 9 degrees."
The NIST clearly relies upon this angle for subsequent damage analysis and their explanation for the cause of collapse as shown by their own approach outlined in NCSTAR 1-6.
Please notice that the entire tree of damage analysis roots from the box "aircraft impact damage analysis". All other stages in analysis are dependent upon it.
