How did that plane landing gear wind up there?

posted at 2:31 pm on April 27, 2013 by Jazz Shaw

I love a good mystery, though I usually stick to old Nero Wolfe novels. Erika wrote about this story last night, but I didn’t get to pay much attention to it until this morning. The object in question turned up in a tiny, 18 inch gap between two buildings in New York City at 51 Park place. (If that address sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the long debated site of a proposed Islamic community center / mosque.) In the midst of a pile of rubble, it’s kind of amazing that anyone made the connection that this could be part of a plane.

LandingGear

In fact, the first person to report the discovery while surveying the location seems to just have described it as, “an unidentified mechanical part.” Honestly, I have to wonder why a surveyor would even bother calling the police over this. If they didn’t know intuitively that it was part of a plane (they say they did not) then it pretty much looks like some metallic junk which could have been ditched in the crawl space by somebody who didn’t want to bother getting it taken to a junk yard. Why call the cops over that?

Then there’s the rope wrapped around it. The interviews with officials releasing the news to the press noted that the large chunk of metal barely fit into the crack between the buildings. Yes, it’s absolutely possible that in the crashing mayhem of the explosions with all that debris flying around, it could have just randomly become entangled with a piece of rope. But if this actually is part of one of the planes from 9-11, (that hasn’t been verified yet, and won’t until they trace the serial number on it) what sounds more likely? Is it that this huge chunk of metal falling out of the sky at terminal velocity and a rather sharp angle just happened to land exactly right to fall down in that 18 inch gap? Or that somebody lowered it down there and lost control of the rope?

I’d really love to come up with some sort of grand conspiracy theory here to pass the time on a Saturday, but the problem I keep running into is… why? What would be the point of somebody “planting” this relic in a pile of rubble and then calling attention to it? I’ve got nothing. There are only two possibilities I keep coming back to. The first is that it did, against all probability, land exactly right after the crash and fall there. The second, and more likely in my opinion, is that a worker was up on the roof in the days and weeks after the attack, found the burdensome hunk of metal on top of one of the buildings and decided to ditch it into the gap rather than having to haul it down to the street and dispose of it.

But I’d still like to see somebody interview the surveyors and ask them precisely what it was that prompted them to call the police. It’s darn peculiar, and I’ll admit I’m curious.

Is it that this huge chunk of metal falling out of the sky at terminal velocity and a rather sharp angle just happened to land exactly right to fall down in that 18 inch gap?

Probably not at terminal velocity — I doubt it fell far enough for that. Terminal velocity for a metal part is going to be a lot high than terminal velocity for a person.

Obviously Dick Cheney was hauling this piece of fake debris up to the roof during the night of 9/10, when suddenly he had a brief heart attack and lost his grip on the rope. Since he still had to go plant all the controlled demolition charges in the towers, he was out of time and had to just leave it there.

Fabozz on April 27, 2013 at 2:38 PM

Maybe it was ‘put’ there to stop the mosque being built? Could be ‘human remains’ there also to stop things till it is investigated?

Not against all probability. People win lotto’s all the time even though they are extremely low probability events which this would be also. That said the second explanation seems more reasonable.

chemman on April 27, 2013 at 2:38 PM

Maybe it isn’t part of a 9/11 plane but was planted there to underline that the mosque would be built on sacred ground? That’s super-lame as an explanation, but it’s what I thought of

Erika’s story contained the following phrase: “…stamped with a clearly visible Boeing identification …”

How could it lay there for a dozen years and the metal thieves,er junk recyclers not have found and sold it?

docflash on April 27, 2013 at 3:15 PM

It might have been missed as it was actually wedged high up in the gap and over the last 12.5 years it fell to be at ground level. It does not say it the brick work was damaged with scratches and how fair if it had to fall thought the gap or could it be hit the gap in a direct shot. There was other landing gears found in Park 51 building so it might have been another part from that gear.

erp on April 27, 2013 at 3:16 PM

Having spent most of my life in the military and being around cannons and other destructive items, it isn’t much of a leap that some parts flew off at weird angles. Many items tend to spin wildly and bounce at crazy angles. Inspections at scenes after explosions almost always reveal at least a couple unusual fragment trajectories. We would just scratch our heads amazed at some of the locations we would find fragments.

Second guessing at the motives of the person reporting the item is just random speculation, which I guess is just as well it’s done on a slow traffic Saturday. We can all dream up a myriad of reasons why or why not.

The rope doesn’t look particularly weathered after 11 years. But I don’t know that much about ropes and weathering.

Rose on April 27, 2013 at 3:17 PM

Agree with the rope not being weathered – but that could mean that whoever noticed it (maybe the guy that reported it?) first thought he could get it for himself and somehow fished a rope around it, to ty and drag it out. After he found out it was stuck, the cut bait and reported it to the public.

Well, it’s as good as the other theory!

Captain Kirock on April 27, 2013 at 3:28 PM

Perhaps it has something to do with the concept of a mosk called a rabat that muslims build on the site of a victorious battle in the heart of their enemy; maybe it needs relics of the battle or something.

In another timeline, the WTC was located in the space where the wheel was found. Due to a rift in the STC, the wheel appears in the right spot, just in the wrong time.

Conversely, there is a time line somewhere thats missing a wheel to one of the aircraft.Any doubt there is great conspiratorial conjecture as to why?

I think the better question is, when you have an event ejecting multiple thousands of pieces of wreckage, what are the odds that at least one ends up wedged somewhere in this fashion. Not terrible I’d say. Certainly not enough to provide compelling evidence for some sort of conspiracy.

rightmind on April 27, 2013 at 4:08 PM

“Height” is not the same as “size”.

If one building is taller than the other (the actual question asked) that might make the accidental “capture” of the part a bit more likely. OTOH depending on which way the part was flying through the air, it might make it nearly impossible.

I don’t think it matters a lot how likely it is or isn’t, though: stuff, as they say, happens.

drunyan8315 on April 27, 2013 at 4:15 PM

Obviously a sign from Allah that the mosque should be built on this location. They can enshrine the relic inside the front door, just above a sign saying “Look what we did!”

GarandFan on April 27, 2013 at 4:18 PM

The rope could be from someone trying to remove it sometime in the last 12 years, and failing. How wedged in there was it? How heavy is it? Could someone have tried to yank it out with a truck or car?

No point in planting it unless it was from one of the planes. In that case the bigger problem would have been getting it in the first place.

It is possible it went through the roof of the building and the people wanting to build the mosque tried to dispose of it but got it lodged between the buildings somehow.

Time will tell possibly.

Well, yes actually, building Mosques on the grounds of great Muslim military victories is the genesis for more than half of the Mosques in Middle Eastern countries.

I think opponents of the planned Mosque planned to spring this before the project got any further than it did.

The whole Mosque project was more flash than pan from the beginning. No one involved had the money or the inclination to follow it up; they just thought it was a good way to p**s off the Infidels….

E9RET on April 27, 2013 at 5:32 PM

But if this actually is part of one of the planes from 9-11, that hasn’t been verified yet,

The NY Daily News reported today that a member of the NYPD aviation unit went to the scene and confirmed it was a plane’s landing gear. A check of its serial number linked the wreckage to the attack that killed 2,753 people.

If one building is taller than the other (the actual question asked) that might make the accidental “capture” of the part a bit more likely. OTOH depending on which way the part was flying through the air, it might make it nearly impossible.

drunyan8315 on April 27, 2013 at 4:15 PM

Park51 (on Sept.11, 2001) was a 5 story building and 50 Murray St. is 22 stories….nice apts. by the way, studios starting from $2400.

NY Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said there were no marks on the buildings to indicate the piece hit the walls on the way down. Cops were also investigating how the gear got there, including the possibility it was lowered into place because of the rope that was found intertwined with the metal. And the debris was described as being about 5 feet by 4 feet by 17 inches, lying in a very, very narrow, confined area.

Bizarre, very bizarre.

“Against all probablility”? There are zillions of parts getting flung everywhere after a collision like that. Those parts have to land somewhere.

What’s against all probability is the worshipful attitude some American elites have adopted towards sexist, anti-Western, xenophobic Islam since 9/11.

Terminal velocity for a metal part is going to be a lot high than terminal velocity for a person.

Count to 10 on April 27, 2013 at 2:35 PM

Ummm, no. Terminal velocity is based on the aerodynamic drag and has nothing to do with density. All objects fall at the same rate in a vacuum (some guy named Galileo worked that out, I think).

I think we’re going to find this isn’t as spectacular as it seemed at first (probably a partial hoax), but it is still pretty incredible to find this part after 11+ years.

GWB on April 27, 2013 at 6:48 PM

Ummm, no. Terminal velocity is based on the aerodynamic drag and has nothing to do with density.

Density is almost everything. If you have two identical boxes, one is empty and one is full of lead, the one with lead will drop a lot faster. The aerodynamic shape plays a small roll, but the big factor is weight per unit volume.

V7_Sport on April 27, 2013 at 8:09 PM

Looking at the building on Google Earth, the mosque building is surrounded by taller buildings in a U shape open to the WTC. It is plausible that the gear hit the taller building and slid down the wall. That doesn’t explain the rope, which is not a lilly white new rope, but dirty like the rest of the gear. Someone found it on the rooftops during the cleanup and tried to lower it down as a souvenir but wasn’t able to retrieve it?

We are not on the moon. We have an atmosphere. The atmosphere creates resistance. To overcome resistance you need weight per unit volume – density. Two objects of the same size, and same shape, will fall at very different speeds depending on their densities.

viking01 on April 27, 2013 at 10:57 PM

Repeating a comment I made yesterday

It’s not surprising that part of the landing gear was found next to the building, since another part of the landing gear went through the roof of the building (then a Burlington Coat Factory). This piece may have gone through the roof and then exited through the wall to the alley… taking building debris with it into that mound in the alley.

The damage to the building was the reason why it was sold… AND the reason why it was bought…

Muslims have a history of taking places they attacked and turning them into “victory mosques”.

The http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_Zero_mosque was originally named “Cordoba House”. One of the largest mosques in the world was a church in Cordoba, Spain that the Muslims changed into a mosque after they conquered it.

The modern day “Cordoba Initiative” said the name “Cordoba House” was meant to invoke 8th–11th century Córdoba, Spain, which they called a model of peaceful coexistence between Muslims, Christians, and Jews marked the apex of the Islamic caliphate.

There is more to the big picture than many people realize.

Remember Michelle Obama’s trip to Spain?

Michelle Obama’s trip to Spain wasn’t “tone-deaf”, it was “pitch perfect”…
to the Cordoba Initiative

ITguy on April 28, 2013 at 12:10 AM

Is that rope or is that a piece of steel cable?

What I would do is attempt to draw the trajectory of the planes and pass the line directly through the buildings and see if the location of this part is even close to that line of travel. If it isn’t, then it is highly unlikely that the part landed there on its own.

How did it end up there.

Well, see there was this guy named Mohammad, who one day decided to create a religion that fit his Geo-political outlook. His followers were none to bright warriors and goat lovers..uh herders. It took a while to gain popularity. He had to recruit kid lovers and sadists by giving them a pass- religiously speaking of course- for their membership, but eventually he raised an army.

So, after the religion got popular (since there was no wi-fi or Internet or Ipods back then to keep the people occupied, and frankly the option of not joining was beheading), Mohammed decided to take the show on the road and conquer everyone who didn’t agree.

The great thing was that the religion justified about any horrible and disgusting act a backwards thinking moron and evil soul could imagine. So after Mohammed passed away his follower kicked it into high gear and started killing, raping and pillaging with great gusto across the known world. Always content to say it was the will of Allah that allowed them to kill and destroy anything they felt wasn’t Muslim..ish.

Then, about…uh what? Okay.. I’ve been told to speed it up.

Soooo fast forwarding a number of centuries. A bunch of followers of Mohammad, upset at the way of the West, hijacked four planes full of innocents and crashed them into buildings, killing thousands. One of those planes had the gear break off and rocket into the wall between the buildings.

And there you go.

I hope I helped.
