"911: In Plane Site": Examining the films of the plane strikes on the Pentagon, WTC
The 2004 film “911: In Plane Site”, by William Lewis, running 72 minutes in the “Director’s Cut”, and narrated by David von Kleist of “The Power Hour”, presents some interesting observations about the planes that crashed on 9/11, although it’s hard to see how we could explain away what has become accepted as standard history of the attacks.
The film starts with an examination of the crash into the Pentagon, and maintains that a 757 would have done much more damage immediately. There is interesting footage of the exposed cross section of the Pentagon that shows undamaged furniture, computers, and even books.
Later the film looks at the footage of the plane hitting the South Tower, and makes a case for the idea that a device had been attached to the bottom of the plane to make it explode first. It tries to examine the footage frame-by-frame much as has been done with the Kennedy assassination. It then makes a similar observation from the well known French film clip (made by a crew in NYC that day making a documentary about the fire department) of the North Tower strike.
It also claims that Flight 93 also landed in Cleveland (which leaves us wondering what accounted for the crash in Pennsylvania). However, my own aunt (who passed away in 2010 but who was fully articulate at the time of the crash) said that several people north of the town of Kipton, Ohio (5 miles west of Oberlin) had seen a plane turning around very low and almost crashing that morning.
The film also plays forgotten media reports of unexploded second and third bombs at the Oklahoma City site in 1995.
It claims that President Roosevelt knew that Pearl Harbor would happen in advance, and that a “Northwoods” report urged bogus attacks against America’s own citizens in order to generate war against the Communists in the early 1960s.
The film can be viewed free on YouTube now, but I watched in on Netflix.
