What Model Boeing Aircraft Hit World Trade Centers?

http://youtu.be/vSC-DxXb5oU
If the video at the link above is real, what type of aircraft is it?  I was under the impression that both buildings were hit by Boeing 767 aircraft.  Problem is the 767 has only 2 engines and the plane in the picture has 4. 

Does someone out there know more about the 767 that can enlighten me?  Maybe the video is faked?

  1. This footage has to be faked. It is pretty realistic though.

  2. They can do almost anything with video and make it look so real. All the other footage shows twin engine jets.

  3. Tom, the video is faked, I believe. The caption for the video reads, "plane crash world trade fx lightwave 3d." We know what FX stands for. Lightwave 3d is a high end computer graphics and animation program; you can Wiki that. The category this film was placed in was 'film and animation.'

    Several comments on the Youtube video point this out and the false plane engines. Another comment was, "...and they put the city in the window. for that 2nd plane, there was no city behind it, it was ocean, staten island, and jersey."

    So my vote and all my poker chips goes towards the doubtful. Anyone else?

  4. Yeah, after I figured out how many engines a 767 had I checked back and saw the posts you pointed out. I should have done more study before sharing it but it is some crazy video you have to admit.

    It might have come from something like the FAA study ThinkProgress reported on in 2008.
    Moreover, the Federal Aviation Administration “had indeed considered the possibility that terrorists would hijack a plane and use it as a weapon,” and in 2001 it distributed a CD-ROM presentation to airlines and airports that cited the possibility of a suicide hijacking.

  5. It is crazy. I'm glad you posted this, Tom. For myself, it's a good reminder of how 'group brainstorming' helps figure things out. I'm not always so good at that.
