Demolitions experts are known by most people to be people who study structural engineering and explosives for many years. They are highly qualified people who are employed to demolish buildings in a manner that allows them to fall straight down or within themselves in order to prevent damage to adjacent buildings and loss of life.
On September 11, 2001 some terrorists crashed airliners in the twin towers and to my surprise the skysrapers fell straight down. After seeing that horrible event, I hade to ask this question; If crashing an aeroplanes in buildings "that tall" could make them fall straight down, why do demolmolisions experts have to go through so much work? I saw illustrations and heard explantions on CNN about the Sept 11 collapse, but somehow something does not seem to add up.
I am not a structural engineer and would not want to offend the experts, but i would like to get response that would clear up any doubt I have about this matter.
