Wing Debris from 9/11 Found, but "Impossible to Identify"
Workers last week discovered an piece of 9/11 debris between two buildings in downtown New York. The 5 foot long chunk of a wing was found between luxury rental building and a mosque. An inspector on the mosque, which is being renovated currently, spotted the object and called in the find to police.
At first the object was assumed to be a landing gear, but officials later identified it as part of a plane wing.
Associated Press reports:
The 5-foot piece is a trailing edge flap support structure, police said. It is located closer to the body of the plane and helps secure wing flaps that move in and out and aid in regulating plane speed. Investigators initially thought it was part of the landing gear because both pieces have similar-looking hydraulics.
The wing only being found now, so long after the events, illustrates how vast a debris field there was on 9/11 - the dust, the rubble, the bent steel and wreckage which they’re still picking up to this day. Many remains were never located; over 1000 victims are still unaccounted for.
"New York City Police and members of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner enter a building in Lower Manhattan Monday, April 29, 2013, near the place where a rusted metal part from the wing of a Boeing 767 was found wedged between a mosque and an apartment building on Friday, April 26. Investigators initially thought it was part of the landing gear, because both pieces have similar hydraulics. Authorities believe the aircraft part is from one of the two hijacked planes used in the Sept. 11 attacks on the nearby World Trade Center. " - AP
Scene of the Crime
In an article about World Trade Center steel, it’s revealed that almost ALL of the evidence from Ground Zero was removed and destroyed:
Steel was the structural material of the buildings. As such it was the most important evidence to preserve in order to puzzle out how the structures held up to the impacts and fires, but then disintegrated into rubble. Since the collapse of steel-framed skyscrapers due to fires is completely unprecedented, the steel should have been subjected to detailed analysis. So what did the authorities do with this key evidence of the vast crime and unprecedented engineering failure? They recycled it!
Some 185,101 tons of structural steel have been hauled away from Ground Zero. Most of the steel has been recycled as per the city’s decision to swiftly send the wreckage to salvage yards in New Jersey. The city’s hasty move has outraged many victims’ families who believe the steel should have been examined more thoroughly. Last month, fire experts told Congress that about 80% of the steel was scrapped without being examined because investigators did not have the authority to preserve the wreckage.
The bulk of the steel was apparently shipped to China and India. The Chinese firm Baosteel purchased 50,000 tons at a rate of $120 per ton, compared to an average price of $160 paid by local mills in the previous year.
The wing that was found last week between the mosque and the apartment building will mostly likely end up catalogued and placed in a museum.
In the past, such pieces have been treated as historical artifacts. For example, the New York State Museum in Albany has in its collection a large landing gear piece that fell through the roof to the basement at the same location. It was placed there in 2002.
Rather than simply using this wing as a sentimental knick-knack, it could instead be inspected and used to piece together bits of the 9/11 puzzle. So far, however, the authorities are staying mum on the significance of this object.
Boeing officials told police the part came from one of its 767 airliners, but it isn’t possible to determine which flight. Both hijacked planes that struck the towers, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were Boeing 767s. American and United had no comment. Source
This seems to be a misdirection.
Many airplanes will be used for different ’flights’ out of airports each day. "A particular aircraft may fly several different flights in one day, and different aircraft may be used for the same flight number on successive days." Source
Flight number (or flight code) is different from the plane identification number. It would take a short investigation to match a particular plane with a flight route that day.
Further, almost every single part on an airplane, down to the tiniest component, has identifying marks or serial numbers. This is industry standard, and certainly was the case on 9/11. It should be no problem to put together a forensic investigation with the remaining airplane parts to match up the parts with the planes with the flight numbers.
And yet, Boeing insists this is impossible.
Firstly, who is giving out this statement from Boeing, and secondly, why aren’t these details important to either Boeing, the police, or the relatives of victims who died on 9/11?
Perhaps it’s a can of worms that officials do not want to open, so it’s deemed "impossible".
What happens if they read the serial numbers on the parts, cross reference it with the numbers that were supposed to be on the planes from the day of the attack, and find they don’t match?
If they do match, well that’s evidence to make a case for the official story. If they DON’T match however, that leads to questions about which planes exactly impacted the Twin Towers that day? If not the Boeing planes that were allegedly carrying passengers booked on Flights 11 and 175, then which?
There are some researchers who theorize that the original planes carrying the passengers booked on 11 and 175 took off as expected from the corresponding gates, but different planes impacted the towers. The key to this comes with the fact that the plane’s transponders (electronic location device) were turned off mid-flight. The official story says the hijackers did this to go ’invisible’ to radar.
On the PilotsFor911Truth forum, pilots speculate on this by suggesting:
"I believe that a more likely explanation is that the 3020 and 3321 transponder codes were part of a multiple plane, "Northwoods" scenario ’swap’ where two planes occupy the same radar ’space’ -- one descends to land, one continues. in this scenario, UA175 is not the craft that hits the towers. a different aircraft is the one seen in the videos, but , per "northwoods" painted as in the livery of the commercial craft."
Ultimately, the way to prove or disprove this theory is by investigating the part number - indeed ALL the part numbers from the pieces of evidence that were gathered from the crime scene. Something that officials call ’impossible’.
A commenter, "Rebel", on the AP story provided his take on what Boeing had to say about it:
"I work for a tiny aerospace supplier that makes non-flight-critical aircraft components and we - and the aircraft completion facility that buys our stuff - [are] required by the FAA to keep meticulous records so that between us, even a circuit panel inside a single button switch panel used to turn on a coffee pot in the back of the plane can be matched to a particular plane.
