Kuna foorumis ei ole veel seda teemat, siis võiks see ikkagi olemas olla.

WTCga seonduvad lood ei ole ainult vandenõuteooriad:

1) WTC ei olnud arhitekt Minoru Yamasaki esimene projekt, mis traagilise lõpu leidis:

Pruitt-Igoe was a large urban housing project first occupied in 1954 and completed in 1955 in the U.S. city of St. Louis, Missouri. Shortly after its completion, living conditions in Pruitt-Igoe began to decay; by the late 1960s, the extreme poverty, crime, and segregation brought the complex a great deal of infamy as it was covered extensively by the international press.

At 3 PM on March 16, 1972 — 16 years after construction was finished — the first of the complex's 33 buildings was demolished by the federal government.The other 32 buildings were destroyed over the next four years. The high-profile failure of Pruitt-Igoe has become an emblematic icon often evoked by all sides in public housing policy debate. The Pruitt-Igoe housing project was one of the first demolitions of modernist architecture and its destruction was claimed by postmodern architectural historian Charles Jencks to mark "the day Modern architecture died." Footage of the demolition of Pruitt-Igoe was incorporated into the film Koyaanisqatsi.




2) 1945 aastal juhtus NY esmakordselt lennuki ja pilvelõhkuja vaheline kokkupõrge - pommitaja B-25 lendas halva ilma tõttu Empire State Buildingusse, mis oli tol hetkel maailma kõrgeim hoone. Lähtudes sellest õnnetusest oli WTC projekteerimisel arvesse võetud võimalikku kokupõrget Boeing707ga.
