Pentagon Versus WTC Damage

767 Imact Damage to Tower Compared to 757 Damage to Pentagon

The following photograph of the North Tower impact hole, and photomontage of the Pentagon impact hole, are depicted at approximately the same scale. The wingspan of a 767-222, such as impacted the North Tower, is 156 feet, whereas that of a 757-200, such as thought to have impacted the Pentagon, is 125 feet. A 767 is slightly heavier and has a wider body and larger wingspan than a 757.

The North Tower photo shows an expanse of the building about 135 feet across, whereas the the long red arrow on the Pentagon photomontage shows a distance of 90 feet.




Note that in the above image, objects out in the construction yard appear directly up against the building because the image was created by compositing different photographs taken from different vantage points. The nearest cable spool was about 30 feet from the facade.

The Pentagon's facade had recently been reinforced to make it blast-resistant.
