Re: Battery Park Michael Hezarkhani CNN video of impact of ghostplane UA175 into south WTC tower of World Trade Center
"WTC vom Battery Park"
possible of interest
Views from WTC down to Battery Park over top of 19west and WhitehallAnnex
If you can feed this photo into virtual-reality-software,
you can place yourself ON THE VECTOR:
NYC - WTC - 2001-08 - Verrazano-Narrows Bridge (115)
This photo could also explain the "moving bridge"... What fantastic
optics can make the WTC AND THE BRIDGE that is that far away appear
sort-of equally large? HOMEWORK: take a screenshot and triangulate
from known size of bridge (span-of-elements) and width-of-wtc
the approx distance of the camera = position of wescam helicopter.

I am exhausted... you can try finding more (put good links into forums or my comments)
We are trying to confirm the camera-location of the famous video of the 911-airplane that crashed into the 2nd tower.
GAP vs BOAT LENGTH calculations
We have a close-up of "THE GAP"
From the close-up we need to guess the size in feet
of the visual gap between 19west (@facade-front) and wtc2
Lets say 15feet
We substract some OVERLAP in the Hezarkhani Video
Hard to tell, the sharpest image is at the bottom of
Lets say 5 feet. That leaves 10 feet.
Then we have the approximate distances
WTC to ferry 3300 feet
19west to wtc 1900 feet
Now we have a triangle with three known sides,
1900 x 1900 x 10
- push the Degrees button
- push the 1) 3 Sides button
we get 0.3 degrees (zero point three)
Now we enter this angle for the triangle
boat2wtc -- angle -- boat2wtc
INPUT SIDE a >>>> 3300
INPUT ANGLE C >>>> 0.3
INPUT SIDE b >>>> 3300
we get 17 feet!! That is realistic on a boat.
LETS DO IT MORE PRECISE.
The distance measuring tool in Google Maps
measures the width of the "top-box" of 19west as 30 feet
This time I counted the pixel.
21pixel/30feet = 1.428 pixel per foot (21 divided by 30)
therefore 10 pixel is 14.28 feet
124 pixel/30 feet = 4.133pixel per foot.
therefore 102 pixels is 24.67 feet
So the difference between Michael and Carmen is
24.67 minus 14.28 feet = 10.39 feet
Now the distance from 19West to WTC2
On Google satellite I made a marked on what seemed to
me vertically down to street level,
Estimated where the left corner of the WTC facade
would have been... and I got 1716 feet
The distance from the boat to WTC2 was 3156 feet
The angle turned out to be
19 feet !!!!
What did I establish?
That they were on the same boat!
Now the trees
Yey! Carmen took a wide shot WITH TREES
Where did the Carmen photos come from?
