I'll take "how to atomize an F-4" for a big wad of cash, Alex.

/hope the thing had been scrapped already

DAYumm. How'd they talk the pilot into it?

A plane at 500 MPH is "atomized" when it hits a large concrete wall. Could that be why there was very little large debris when a plane hit the Pentagon?

Of course not.

/Personally, I blame the Jews.
//And Bush.
///Let's not forget Martin Marietta who designed and built the missle that can look like a missle and a jet at the same time depending on the IQ of those few that actually saw the event.
////How many black helicopters were in the area at the time or were they all told to stay home that day?

I came in to say the same thing-ish as i am the infidel.

/However, I'm a reinforced concrete wall from a nuclear power station, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies

Meh, he should've switched to guns.
 
2007-08-28 07:19:59 AM  
Yeah, I want to see this test but with missiles!

/pew pew
//boom

I came to also say almost exactly what i am the infidel said, no wonder there was nothing left.

kinda of buggers up the consiracy theorists, doesn't it.

The wall was asking for it.

They never show you the wall after the plane hits.

I want to see a Phantom run into a chicken-wire apparatus to decide conclusively, once and for all, whether the 9/11 WTC bombings were staged.

I thought this was going to be about a tornado.

What are these "bombings" you speak of? I thought a giant alien mothership blasted the buildings, like in "Independence Day."

As soon as I saw F-4 I knew this video would be old as hell. It was still cool, though.

the "concrete" walls of nuclear power plant are actually almost half steel. so we could say ElPresidente is Superman or at least a drunken offspring of Superman and a road or something.
/yeah i got nothing

I've been called worse.

Going to PC LOAD LETTER's link, I saw this crash test of the Chinese-made Brilliance BS6.

Holy guacamole. Hope they include handles for the pallbearers.

I just came in here to mention how old this is... it's quite old. I watched it for the first time some 4 years ago.

/That is all.
//It's mad cool. Everyone should see. Good job submitting it.

Good thinkin'. They should make planes out of the bodies and DNA bits that they recovered from the passengers. That stuff is strong.
 
2007-08-28 12:21:13 PM  
That's what it looked like the last time i boned a chick. My weener broke the sound barrier.
 
2007-08-28 12:39:36 PM  
Since there is such a small amount of debris remaining the only possible conclusion is that it was in fact a missile wrapped in a crispy F-4 shaped paper mache shell that hit that wall.
 
2007-08-28 01:09:33 PM  
Although this is an old video, I still hate it when people say "lol IT'S OLD I AM HIP I HAVE SEEN THIS ALREADY LOOK AT MEEE!!!" (ignite ice, for one). Seriously, not everyone has seen every video on the internet, so naturally some videos are going to show up *gasp* more than once!!!!!

that_other_internet: Good thinkin'. They should make planes out of the bodies and DNA bits that they recovered from the passengers. That stuff is strong

or maybe out of the same material that constituted all the farkING DEBRIS THEY PULLED OUT OF THE PENTAGON

I am normally a fairly rational person, but the people who think that no plane crashed into the pentagon are just willfully deluded.
"There was no engine parts.."
Show picture of engine parts being trucked out of building
"That was the wrong kind of engine..."
Show side by side comparison between engine parts
"Reports of a missile..."
People see what they think they see, and sometimes that doesn't even include a guy in a gorilla suit. Not to mention eyewitness reports of a farking plane.

/thanks, I'm better now

The part that cracks me up is that it's listed under "Do It Yourself" category on YouTube.

/why does YouTube hate america?

Now I want to see Australian rock sensation Jet get smashed into a concrete wall at 500 mph.
 
2007-08-28 02:16:19 PM  
I don't think the video is actually a legit simulation...

The wall moves.

If the wall moves at all, it's not dissipating the force of the blow entirely within its surface.

While I don't doubt that the outer surface of the wall could withstand the blow, I bet that serious cracks would emerge after such a hit to a real power plant's structure.

They say that the wall is supposed to move in the video and that the power plant walls are built the same way.

If you don't have some kind of give in general (ie: moving) you have an unsafe building in terms of large impact or earthquake safety. If it has no give, it's too brittle to be of use.

Ta-Da!
 
2007-08-28 06:15:16 PM  
I thought I saw the wings slicing all the way through the wall. The editing of this clip makes me think the aftermath of the test wasn't exactly what was hoped for.

gururich: I thought I saw the wings slicing all the way through the wall. The editing of this clip makes me think the aftermath of the test wasn't exactly what was hoped for.

I think that was the tips of the wings shearing off because they were longer than the wall itself.

Fook: I think that was the tips of the wings shearing off because they were longer than the wall itself.

But it's completely ridiculous that they don't show the aftermath. It's like showing a car crash test and stopping the video at the moment of impact and saying, "see, it's all safe!"

ccguy: Holy guacamole. Hope they include handles for the pallbearers.

but hey, it has airbags! And you have to wonder why after seeing that
 
2007-08-28 08:03:21 PM  
I've read the report from that series of tests.

Very reassuring.

Well, that should discourage the terrorists a little more than anything the Bush administration has said or done. It sure beats the crap out of encouraging people to film their cats. Why do cats hate America?

By the way, I saw a pair of shoes today (on the street, without anybody in them) and thought--how come shoes are searched when you board airplanes but you can step out of them yards the biggest shopping mall in town and nobody cares? The unattended gym bag was also a little suspicious.

Moray, at 2:00 into your video, did you catch the reporter/witness saying,

"And then, there was debris from the plane located on the overpass itself. And all these military people came out with stretchers and tarps and there were all these wounded people, but they put the aircraft parts onto the stretchers and covered those with the tarps and drove away."
