- NIST theory relies on the steel on several floors
being cleansed of their fireproofing by plane crash.
- NIST tests its theory by fireing a shotgun at a piece of metal in a box
covered with fireproofing.
- NIST provides no argument to support the idea that the jet impact
would act like so many shotgun blasts.
- Tests demonstrate that the fireproofing would not be knocked off.
It would have to be sheared off.
