How come the plane went through the building when the forces acting on the building and the plane were the same?
Apparently the planes, arriving at 500 mph, stopped inside the buildings within 60 metres, and the passport of M. Atta, dropped down from one plane and was collected by an observer on the ground. All very strange to me. I wonder how Newton would have interpreted this event?
Maybe it was just Hollywood in action?
