flew them


The alleged hijackers were said to be incompetent at flying.

into buildings (and a field), two of which were the two main WTC
buildings. The initial impact and resulting fire weakened the steel
structure, causing floors above and below the impact areas to collapse.


Your hypothesis collapses right here.

'The WTC, on this low-wind day, was likely not stressed more than
a third of the design allowable, which is roughly one-fifth of the yield
strength of the steel. Even with its strength halved, the steel could still
support two to three times the stresses imposed by a 650C fire.'

This caused undue stress on the remaining structure, which gave way
floor by floor as it pancaked down.

It went down instead of up because
of gravity, a natural force you irrationally reject out of hand.


I've done no such thing, liar.

I've given you links to reports written by engineers which detail the
metal fatigue caused by the impact and fire. Their reports on the steel
are based on scientific metalurgical testing. Their analyses of the
collapse is based on their expertise in the field.


Cites? The above is from the first link you gave, remember.
