New Research on the Pentagon Events

by David Chandler –

Ken Jenkins and David Chandler recently took pairs of direct copies from the Pentagon surveillance video cameras and put them together as you would see them in a blink comparator.  By doing this, the image of the plane “pops out.”  The one shown here has been converted to an animated gif.  Converting to gif images degrades the color resolution, so an alternate process is used here to blink higher quality png image.  Watch the image cycle a few times and the details of the plane are definitely visible.  Hopefully this will go a long way to take the air out of the “no plane” meme.


Since our joint statement was written Frank Legge and Warren Strutt have published a new analysis of the data from the American Airlines Flight 77 FDR (Flight Data Recorder).  The previously published analysis omitted the last records and so appeared to be inconsistent with the official narrative of the flight path of AA77 into the Pentagon.  This new analysis is consistent with the path of damage inside and outside the Pentagon and the vast majority of eyewitness testimony.  The article is published at the Journal of 9/11 Studies.

Frank Legge and David Chandler have also done an analysis of the plausibility of a “North of Citgo (NOC)” flight path, based on flight dynamics, concluding that even with a broad interpretation of the data, the transition to the NOC flightpath would have been impossible.  These results have been published in two articles, The Pentagon Attack on 9/11: A Refutation of the Pentagon Flyover Hypothesis Based on Analysis of the Flight Path, published on the Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice web site, and Addendum to the Paper Refuting the Pentagon Flyover Hypothesis, published in the Foreign Policy Journal.  Frank Legge published another summary paper in the Journal of 9/11 Studies in 2012 with some additional information: The 9/11 Attack on the Pentagon: the Search for Consensus.

Pilots for 9/11 Truth attempts to prove that a large plane could not have hit the Pentagon based on has an analysis of the g-force needed to level out in the last seconds.  That analysis is based on flawed calculations, as pointed out to them by the late Dr. Frank Legge over 5 years ago.  They continue to promote the flawed analysis on their website.  Here is my own independent analysis (DC) that supports Frank Legge’s results.

Dwain Deets, flight research engineer, who once endorsed the CIT, no crash at the Pentagon theory has revised his position and now argues in favor of a crash consistent with the American Airlines Flight 77 aircraft.  He presented a paper describing his reasoning at 9/11: Advancing the Truth, a 9/11 Commemoration Conference, September 14-15, 2013 in Washington DC.  The paper is posted on his personal page at the Scientists for 9/11 Truth web site.

Physicist John Wyndham has written a comprehensive review of the literature in a paper entitled The Pentagon Attack: Problems with Theories Alternative to Large Plane Impact, originally published in the Journal of 9/11 Studies with an updated version on the Scientists for 9/11 Truth website.  He concludes that “a large plane hitting the Pentagon is by far the most plausible theory.”
