      Believe me, it will melt as it burns. Check out any pictures taken tomorrow morning, and you’ll hardly recognize it as an airplane.

      What a moron. Mason – your village is calling.

      I have to agree. jet fuel is extremely hot. So the plane is most melted. But as for 9/11 total inside job. When they fell on the foot prints no way. Plus building 7 goes down too from basically nothing come one. Not even a plane hit it.

      1. Frank says:

        Uhh, everyone saw King Kong knock down building 7. Osama was riding on his back. Apparently everyone in the U.S. thinks they’re an architect or civil engineer.
