John Chappell picks up on the Vanguardia “exclusive” from June/July re alleged mysterious shadows on the fuselage of the second WTC plane (English version here). Unlike professional conspiracy theorists, La Vanguardia make no attempt to appear credible:
- Where are the images on which their conclusions are based?
- Who is the nameless digital imaging expert at the Mataró Poly who confirmed their suspicions? (FYI: Mataró is a small beach town whose college has no reputation to defend in this field or in any other of which I am aware.)
- Who did they talk to at Boeing?
- If this is such a mind-blowing discovery, why haven’t they alerted the rest of the world’s media?
To set your mind at rest, here are two exhibits:
- A photo of UA-175 just before impact. There is only one shadow on the fuselage: that of the right engine.
- A map of the area and the plane’s path. This serves to confirm that the shadow is in the correct position for the time of day.
