The FBI has recently made public several photographs inside the Pentagon just after flight AA 77 allegedly flew into the building on September 11, 2001. The images are now posted to the FBI’s records vault, and give a “new look” into the destruction (by the plane).
Flight 77, a Boeing 757-223, was allegedly hijacked by five men. The flight took off at Dulles Airport at 08:20, with the transponder being switched off at 08:56 hours. The plane then allegedly crashed into the Pentagon at 09:37:46 hours — killing all 64 people on board, as well as 125 people in the building.
The FBI Photographs
There are so many unanswered questions. Considering it it the most guarded building in the world, the FBI should have settled this once and for all and just released all the CCTV from the Pentagon, and surrounding buildings.
Below is a pictorial comparison between other planes into buildings crashes, and the released FBI photographs.
A Crash in Lagos
A passenger plane with 147 people on board has crashed into a building in a densely populated area in the Nigerian city, Lagos.
The National Post wrote “The plane did not appear to have nose-dived into a building, but seemed to have landed on its belly. It first crashed through a furniture shop and then into residential buildings…” (It was obviously not doing the speed of AA 77.)
In January 2017 a Turkish cargo jet (below) has crashed (trying to land in poor visibility) near Kyrgyzstan’s Manas airport, damaging 15 buildings and killing at least 37 people.
Back To The Pentagon

The Boeing 757 200 series is 155 feet long (47 m). It has a wing span just over 124 feet (38 m) and the height of the tail is 44 feet (13 m). It can carry 11,276 American gallons of jet fuel and can reach 600 mph. The seating capacity can range from 186 to 239 passengers.
More FBI Photographs
Below are more photographs released by the FBI of the aftermath of the plane hitting the Pentagon.
I was hoping to spot one of the plane’s 200 seats.
And, just to confirm — let’s add the plane’s ID (like Satam Al Suqami magical passport).
We await the release of the CCTV footage from the many cameras that guard the Pentagon.
