Maybe They Will Fix It In Version 3.0?
My first couple of posts are from material I have already posted elsewhere, but I thought they were good, and this seems the appropriate place to archive them. This first example demonstrates an anachronism, poor logic and shoddy factchecking, especially given this is the second version.
Midway through this farce, in an illogical attempt to prove that a crashing airplane could not have caused the World Trade Centers to collapse, the movie claims a B-52 crashed into the Empire State Building in 1945 without causing a collapse.This is quite an accomplishment since the B-52 is a giant bomber with 8 engines, that did not fly until 1954, nearly nine years later.
The bomber that crashed into the Empire State Building was in fact a much smaller B-25 bomber that was lost in the fog. Well, maybe our filmmakers are just verbally dyslexic? So bad fact checking aside, how is this relevant?
Well let us look:
33,000 lbs normally loaded
974 gallon fuel load
230 MPH cruising speed
450,000 lbs maximum takeoff weight
23,980 gallon fuel load
530 MPH cruising speed
Using the formula, f=ma, which any high school physics student should know, which of the two airplanes would have caused more damage upon impact? Discuss among yourselves
