It takes a concentrated heat from oxy cetylene torches to cut through steel such as in the WTC. There's no way the relatively low heat from the aircraft, most of which was wasted in the open air would burn through steel cables, never mind supporting steel girders. Jet fuel is kerosene based only.

Thankyou
