Or, instead of "reflected", these appendages were bent back and drawn into the building, or a combination of both? Or more likely:Getting back to the context: the damage to the Pentagon (as shown in various photographs) indicated that the brick & masonry were penetrated by the fuselage, inner wings and engines. The hole was "too small" only in the sense that the wingtips & the tail didn't penetrate the building. So, only the wingtips and tail were too light & frail to penetrate, but must have reflected instead.
I believe this is exactly what we stated at the conclusion of The Five-Sided Fantasy Island.Or: if there was no 757 impact, then the perpetrators did a credible job of imitating the damage that a real 757 might have done to the facade.
The problems are not with the entry hole so much, as with the issues involved with the official story's flight approach to the building. The following is a view from the top of the Naval Annex. One can see that the plane needed to dive down from above the approximate ground height of the Naval Annex, hit the 5 lamp posts, barely miss the overhead highway sign (in the lower right corner), and conveniently leave the outside footprints of the 757 engines, ... all so that it could enter the building's first and second floors. The two floors that just so happened to provide covered access all the way to the back of the C-Ring. As I have stated before, there was no requirement for terrorists to take this approach, but there would be if one wanted to stage the event in a freshly 'refurbished' section of the building.
I think we should call this The Case of Too Much Plausible Deniability, as in the Case of the Man Who Protesteth Too Much.
BTW, as seen above, the official story's flight approach would place the plane in clear view of all the traffic on the main highway (395), and other than Gary Bauer, where all all these eyewitnesses?
And, from the above two views, note the much greater visibility to the public if the building had been more logically approached from any other direction (except over Arlington National Cemetery which is out of view to the left), and from which juicier targets in the building would have been afforded. Juicer than a mostly empty, just renovated, wedge provided that is.
Contrast the above to this view from over the cemetery:
From this view above the cemetary, one cannot even see highway 27 below the bluff in front of the building. An overflight plane could appear out of seeming nowhere and once above the building veer sharp to the right for a landing at Reagan National's transverse runway. Many people, indoors at this time, were likely glued to their television sets looking at the destruction in NYC, rather than looking out their windows.
