There is a 1min16sec video segment from WNYW (New York's Fox station) out there that contradicts the Naudet video of the first explosion at the World Trade Center, North Tower (WTC1). The video can be seen here: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVEmAWaKoYQ"]9/11 WTC Rare Video of First Plane Attack - WNYW TV - YouTube[/ame] Here's a rough summary of the video: 0:00 to 0: 13 studio anchor, Jim Ryan, references the time as being a "3 hours and a few minutes" after 8:45AM, which he gives as the time of the video that is about to be shown. He describes it as video of "the first crash." 0:13 to 0:18 As the camera is focused at ground level to about tree level in the far background and up to about 6feet up from ground level in the near background, covering the sidewalk where a few passersby can be seen either in part or in full. **0:18 to 0:24There is then a sound that can be described as various things, but not as that of a jetliner. Certainly, none of the passersby even react to the sound during this segment, so it is unlikely a jetliner is flying over Manhattan, 1000ft above ground at <500mph, as any such event would not result in nonchalance by passersby who were as close as these were. They are seen to be nonchalant. We know the location here is "near City Hall." 0:22 to 0:23 There is a visible shaking of the camera, while the onrushing sound is still heard. Then, at about the 0:23 mark a collision that sounds like a car crash is heard. The collision is at some distance, but is pretty intense. 0:23-0:25 The sound that I say is a subway can still be heard after the collision, at almost, but not quite the same intensity as before the collision sound. The reaction of two passersby can be clearly seen in this segment. One is a woman entering from the leftside the other a woman passing through who has entered from the rightside. The woman on the left pays no attention at all to the sound UNTIL the collision is heard, to which she almost instantly reacts. The woman on the right walks by and appears to look up a second or two before the collision sound is heard. That would be consistent with her seeing the fireball and the light gray smoke it emitted as that would be visible before the collision sound is heard. 0:26 A voice is heard to say "what the hell was that" in response, not to the sound, but to the collision. I consider that significant because based on the location of the camera, if a jetliner had passed overhead at about 1000 ft above street level, I think people at that vantage point would have known it was a jetliner and would not have asked "what the hell was that." We know that the teevee reporter on the scene is Dick Oliver. Dick Oliver did not see a plane and does not describe the sound of a jetliner. He, instead, says: The video continues: 0:28 In response to Dick Oliver saying "what the hell was that?" someone says "sounded like a plane crash." That is a valid witness statement as to what that person heard. However, the person is offering a guess and not something the person saw. 0:28-0:37 A this point the camera begins a process of moving from the foot shots and somewhere at about the 32sec mark we see, for the first time, the sky in the direction of the WTC. 0:37-0:51 We also see in this interval smoke ranging in color from medium gray to light gray, and predominantly light gray. The observed smoke color is completely inconsistent with a jetliner crash because kerosene burns in very thick, black billowy smoke. The color is inconsistent with jet fuel. I know posters here will have physics and math and all sorts of other explanations that says that the color of the smoke is just exactly what it should be for a jetliner crash. I get it. However, in so doing, posters will be engaging in rationalization. The smoke is not black, not thick and billowy and is, instead, more wispy, and more light gray than any other color; and not, therefore, consistent with a jet fuel based fire at all. 0:40to 0:51 As the predominantly light gray smoke is being seen, the narration continues with questioning as to what is seen "come to us" is repeated and so on. 0;51 to 1:01 The location of the smoke is identified as the WTC and someone says "it's just [pronounced:jist] an explosion." That narration is consistent with my claim that what happened was "it's just an explosion." 1:03to1:16 We return to the anchor, Jim Ryan, who says various things, BUT, who never says it was a plane crash, let alone a jetliner crash. **This is the most revealing part of the video. The passersby are not at all surprised by the sound making it unlikely a jetliner at 1000ft and <500mph is coming their way.
