A New Theory on WTC 7?
I have to admit I hadn't heard this one before:
While in flight they were informed of the second hijacked plane heading toward New York City. In an interview with ABC News (9/11/2002) Duffy said they flew at supersonic speed. At this rate they could have flown the distance from Otis to New York City in 10 to 12 minutes -- in time to intercept Flight 175. A near interception of the second plane at 9:03 as it was crashing into the South Tower is the best explanation for what happened that day. The fighters fired their missiles -- seconds too late -- hitting the southern face of World Trade Center 7 and the open parking area northwest of the Twin Towers.
Of course this theory ignores that there was no authority to shoot down planes at the time, that nobody saw fighter planes in the vicinity, that nobody died from a missile being fired into WTC 7... you know, all the details that would support this loony conspiracy theory.
