You can still see the rope they used to tie up the plane after they hijacked it.



No wonder the plane couldn't fight back.

way south: Its rather big to be the landing gear from a drone.
Maybe its from some other plane crash?

SpaceBison: If you had read the article then you would know that this part in question does indeed have a serial number stamped on it.


I did read the article.

FTA:" The part bears a "Boeing" stamp, followed by a series of numbers, as seen in an exclusive photo obtained by NBC 4 New York."

That may or may not be a serial number and there are no claims that it is at this time by the people there and Boeing hasn't commented on it yet. Those may be part numbers (which are not unique and don't do anything but ID the type of plane it was once attached to). My main point was that not every part has a unique serial number attached to it (which was the claim I was responding to) because it would be a paperwork nightmare.

make me some tea: So on the radio they said that they found this while inspecting the building for the construction of the Islamic center.

huh, why do they need to demolish anything to get that thing out of there?
If it got there it can be removed via the same path. Just need to rent a crane, hook it to the landing gear, pull it out. Check the soil for body parts and random dna, all done.

But then NYC couldn't destroy the mosque.

For farks sake, there is no mosque. It's a farking community center that's getting renovated... there's a room for prayer, but calling it a mosque is as misguided as calling the YMCA a Cathedral.


OK, smart guy, what ELSE does the 'C' stand for???

Not really, I've lurked off and on for a decade, mostly not impressed with what I've seen and occasionally amused.

Huh, yeah.  If a hundred pounds of metal landing gear came falling down and wedged itself between two concrete buildings traveling at over 300 mph then all you would need to remove it could possibly be the same amount of energy and an appropriate place to position a large enough crane.  I'm just guessing that last part is the rub.  Especially if this is in an 18'' alley.

Well my first try would probably be a enough cribbage stacked 4x4's on top of a couple of 1" plywood sheets each (load distribution) to clear the roof edge for a footing on each roof edge and one or two 6x6's going from each footing above the debris with a come along and a choker and see if it could be tugged out that way. It may be wedged at it's widest point so just getting it to spin on the y axis might break it loose. Worse case there is some cosmetic damage to the buildings exteriors. Demolition of two whole buildings would be my very last option.

\the crane can lift the lumber up to the roofs.

To bad the government doesn't give two shiats about your opinion. The will I get that landing gear no matter what, even if it means eminent domaining those two buildings and destroying them the process and to hell with the people living there.

This.  I've shaped a lot of steel using propane fire.  Clue:  Propane/Gasoline/JetFuel can't *melt* steel, but use any of the three to heat it up to about 1800 degrees and it's soft enough to tie in a knot.

//conspiracy assholes almost as bad as extreme religious folks.
///extreme opinions rarely have good results over the course of human history

I have a friend who's all into 9/11 conspiracies, and lately, the marathon bomb 'conspiracy'.  It's interesting just asking simple questions like "Please provide evidence for your assertions" and to be met with "the evidence was removed/taken/destroyed!" and "open your eyes, can't you see how the media/whatever is manipulated?"

He also has that "smartest guy in the room" complex, where he believes he is greatly more intelligent than he actually is.  He has a day trading "system" that only loses money in the long run, but he keeps going because every once in awhile he'll have a day where he's ahead.

I don't know, it's interesting.  Somewhere the ability to see logical conclusions becomes miswired, plus a sense of grandiosity and you have a conspiracy theorist.

I have absolutely no idea. Someone probably thinks that dragging it out horizontally is the best way to go instead of simply pulling it out the way it came in and that doing so would damage a large portion of both foundations or something dumb like that.

On a side note it's starting to look like it's not a part of the landing gear but a part of the flaps mechanism (Flap lever). Look at the left hand panel of this diagram that is too large for Fark to handle.
