Fire and Steel

One of the claims of many 9/11 conspiracy theorists is that the heat generated from the initial crash could not have brought down the twin towers, leading some to claim that there were bombs planted. I thought of them as reading this report from The Detroit Free Press. The heat from a tanker explosion on I-75 led to the collapse of an overpass as the steel beams supporting it lost their strength.

This will not convince 9/11 conspiracy theorists and is not actual proof of anything, but it was interesting to see the effects of such heat on steel supports (as is also seen in this model of the collapse of the World Trade Center).

    Didn’t someone see that black helicoptor fly by the overpass a full 90 seconds after the tanker exploded but only 3 seconds before the collapse?
