A bird can destroy a plane , what happens when a plane hits a giant pile of concrete and steel that was specifically designed to withstand being hit by a plane .

Discuss.

Yes and it was the first "high-rise building" to ever collapse from a fire.

lazy fire department. where they sleeping when this happened cause any commercial/residential building is constructed with materials that have a ul fire rating of a few hours but thats completly depending on the fire department showing up to put the fire out. should probably fire those firemen that worked that day. on a positive note. the building survived twice the amount of time it should have

Seems this was the first time the fire department was late, hence the one collapse.  Some buildings have burned way longer than 7 hours and no collapse. I think the record is 18 hours.  Probably better fire rating.

if a building burned for 18 hours. what are the odds it probably had the fire department putting water on it during those 18 hours and long after the flames went out?

Well obviously, otherwise it would have collapsed symmetrically at free fall speed on it's own foot print.

buildings usually only do that when the fire department is currently buried under the building next door that collapsed. which building are we talking about anyways?

The one and only high-rise building that collapsed due to a fire.

 

Don't know why they bother with demolitions anymore. Just set it on fire and it neatly falls on it's footprint.

the one and only? that narrows it down. so was it the one and only in iran in 2017 or the one and only in brazil in 2018? cause those would be ones that collapsed due to a fire. the others are probably fires started from debris falling from a building next door thats double its heigth. but i'm sure debris falling 50 stories onto another building does absolutely no damage

Was reading straight from official report. So correction, the first one to collapse due to a fire as of 2001.

Could be that the debris from other building caused symmetrical damage, hence the symmetrical collapse.  

 

So I guess there were no fire fighter doing their job in the Iran and Brazil cases so it collapsed?  

 

I think I'll start my own demolition company. All I really need is some matches.

The pile you refer to probably wasn't really made of steel and concrete.  That's the big cover up.  That is why it crumbled to bits.
