In an eery foreshadowing of what would be the fate of the twin towers on September 11th, a person on November 30th, 2000 wrote the following in an Internet forum:
When the two towers that make up the World Trade Center were built, they were designed to withstand the impact of the largest airliner of the day, the Boeing 707 Intercontinental. The Empire State Building survived a B-25 medium bomber crashing into it on a very foggy day. It was during the weekend when most people weren’t there, but still, 14 people died.
Anyone wanna bet that the World Trade Center could survive an 767-300 impact?
As everyone is aware, the towers did not withstand the impact of a Boeing 707. The forum poster was sure that the towers could absorb a huge amount of damage without falling over, but it did anyways. This could be proof for some that bombs were planted inside the buildings to destroy the support structures that would have kept the towers standing in the air.
Games and TV Shows Predict Terror Attacks
Some other foreshadowing regarding the fate of the Twin Towers is also included in video games and TV shows. In the 2000 PC game Deus Ex, the towers were absent from New York, because according to the story they were destroyed by a terrorist attack (in reality, they were absent from the game because the graphical computing power was not there).
The pilot episode of the TV show “The Lone Gunmen” centered on a plot by terrorists to fly a hijacked airplane into the Word Trade Center. In the story, the attack was actually coordinated by an American weapons manufacturer, intending to start a war that would lead to increased weapon sales. The episode first aired March 4th, 2001.
