A message from Steve De’ak:
Ready to work for peace? 9/11 Crash Test proposes a scientific test to prove the Official Story of 9/11 is a bad lie.
Thanks to all who are interested in donating time and money. I am only asking for help at this point, no money is to be collected.
When the fundraising drive commences, all money will be handled by the fundraising site/s. I stand to make ZERO money out of this, all funds will be spent on the project. If the target figure isn’t reached then no one will have spent a dime beyond my own investment.
Please visit http://www.911crashtest.org/ for more details.
At the bottom of the below linked page is a PDF of an Aircraft Impact Damage document from MIT, I took the liberty of adding a few comments to it.
A hurricane can blow a straw through a tree?
This is an old wives’ tale. Q: There are reports of straw and other debris penetrating cattle, trees and other solid objects during a tornado. Does this occur because of the wind speeds involved, or is there any truth to something I was told which is the “inside” of the tornado is a perfect vacuum that causes solid objects to basically “open up” or pull apart?
A: You’re correct, there are confirmed reports of straws penetrating trees or boards in tornadoes. Years ago some thought that tornado winds were fast enough to drive straws into trees, but measurements of tornado wind speeds have shown that they rarely approach 300 mph. The air pressure inside a tornado is lower than the surrounding pressure, but is far from a perfect vacuum. The most generally accepted theory about what happens is that the winds bend trees or boards enough to open up the grains, a straw flies in and the tree straightens up when the tornado moves on.

For what it’s worth, the popular Mythbusters T.V. show busted this old wives’ tale a while back http://mythbustersresults.com/episode61
