It has been proposed by Scott that Flight 77 didn't fly into the Pentagon despite all the evidence Flight 77 impacted the Pentagon including physical evidence, DNA evidence, eyewitnesses, and the fact Flight 77 didn't turn up anywhere else.
Here are the facts nobody denies:
A plane approached the Pentagon at a high rate of speed.
Something damaged the Pentagon with a big explosion with fire and smoke.
Flight 77 is missing.
So what does Scott claim happened? Well, he is not real sure, but here is the explanations he has given us so far:
It could be explosives set up outside the Pentagon, but then it is impossible to explain the damage inside the Pentagon that is well documented and completely unlike anything explosives would do.
It could be another plane following right behind Flight 77 that impacted the Pentagon right after firing missiles. But not one person reports two planes, radar images only show one plane, and the debris inside the Pentagon is from a 757, the FDR was from Flight 77, and all the bodies found were from Flight 77.
No matter which explanation Scott uses, one fact remains clear in his mind; Flight 77 overflew the Pentagon.
IF Flight 77 or any other plane flew OVER the Pentagon, especially at the speeds everyone agrees on, any explosion either before, during or after Flight 77 went over the pentagon would have the smoke follow wake of the departing plane. The wake left behind an airliner causes a huge amount of turbulence in the air and would have made the smoke from the explosion deform. Does any witness see this? No. Is it evident from any of the video footage? No.
This is the first piece of hard evidence that no plane flew over the Pentagon as per Scott's claim.
If Flight 77 or any other plane flew OVER the Pentagon, that plane would have flow over the following places which are usually full of people, yet NOT ONE WITNESS has ever stepped forward saying they saw anything unusual which would most definitely include a plane flying over the Pentagon. I am listing these in the order from closest to the Pentagon to the furthest away.
The center of the Pentagon which is an open space with walkways and many visitors. Apparently on 9/11 it was completely abandoned.
The plane would have flown in clear, unobstructed view of five different Pentagon parking lots. What are the odds not a single person was walking to or from their car on the morning of 9/11?
The plane would have flown over one six lane highway, North Jefferson Davis Highway, and one major steet, North Boundary Channel Drive. Apparently no cars were present or they were all plants as Scott has tried to pretend.
The plane would have flown over Columbia Island Marina, home to several hundred boats. Apparently nobody wanted to go boating on a fine September morning.
The plane would have flown over another four lane highway, the George Washington Memorial Parkway.
The plane would have flown over the Mount Vernon Trail. Obviously nobody would be outside walking on a clear September morning.
The plane would have flown over the Potomac River in clear view of every boat currently on the river.
The plane would have flown in clear view of three major bridges: the six lane Arlington Memorial Bridge, the 9 lane 395 / George Mason Memorial Bridge, and the four lane Arland D Williams Memorial Bridge.
The plane would have flown over West Potomac park and it's eight baseball diamonds.
The plane would have flown in clear view of the East Potomac Golf Course. Surely nobody would be out playing golf on a clear September morning right?
The plane would have flown over the National Mall including the Lincoln memorial, the Reflecting Pool, the Vietnam War Veteran's Memorial, the Korean War Veteran's Memorial, the World War II Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the Smithsonian complex. Of course, Scott claims they closed down the National Mall on 9/11, but has absolutely zero evidence that this event happened even though it would take HOURS to clear out the park and all its attractions.
The plane would have flown in clear view, if not over, the south lawn of the Whitehouse.
At 500 miles an hour, the plane would have been over the Whitehouse in just over fourteen seconds. Assuming a ridiculous climb rate of 4500 FPM, the plane would be just over a thousand feet off the deck and screaming like a banshee. Think anyone WOULDN'T notice that?
So what proof is there a plane flew over the Pentagon? So far, not one piece of evidence has been presented. Not ONE. We have Scott's opinion that the crash site doesn't look like what would happen if a 757 hit the Pentagon. Is Scott an expert in crash impact analysis? Not even close. But we're suppose to believe him over all the other evidence including the evidence his claims Flight 77 overflew the Pentagon are impossible.
