- Greetings Jeff,
- The object attached to the jet fuselage should not exist
in the picture of the second 767 heading for an impact with the south tower.
- I am an aircraft mechanic with nineteen years at a major
carrier and have accomplished hundreds of service checks on most models
of passenger liners from the 727, 737(all models), the MD-80, DC-9, 757
and the 767. There is no accessory to my knowledge that attaches to the
fuselage of any of those aircraft.
- From the shadow of the object it reminds me of some kind
of external fuel tank, like many military aircraft use to extend their
range. How it came to be attached to a Boeing 767, which has no fittings,
("hard points", in the service) for it to fastened is a dilemma.
- In conclusion, it is definitely not an open right side
AC bay door on the bottom of the fuselage, because if it had come unlatched
the airstream at 450-550 mile per hour would tear that door right off its'
hinges, regardless of its' orientation to the line of flight.
- Good Luck, Jeff

- Jeff -Shadows? Paint schemes? Light Reflections? Forget
about it...the right side engine has its OWN shadow. That 'object' is casting
its OWN shadow. This needs a serious investigation. Let's hope people
aren't threatened away from one.
