Humint Events Online: Wings

Monday, February 20, 2006


No, not the old McCartney band.

The wings on a 767-200ER, the type of plane flight 11 was:

They are fairly large structures in comparison to the plane. Also, they didn't jut straight out-- they sweep back at an angle.

So why do the wings in this plane cast such a small, straight shadow?

In fact, if you look at the whole impact sequence, the wings never cast ANY significant shadow on the wall!

Very odd.

There were no shadows cast by the wings for a simple reason; Boeing has developed translucent wings, much like those on dragonflies. It is a special carbon fibre employed to respond to the growing amount of complaints that the airlines had being receiving in regard to aircraft related 'wing pollution', which was preventing Nephologists from fully studying silver linings.
