    9-11 Explosion video from Pentagon security camera

    Is it possible to look for characteristics in the initial phases of an explosion
    to tell whether it was the result of a high explosive or from burning jet fuel ?

    Any help is always appreciated

    This has been done to death....

    The airliner crossed a road at a very low height, right in front of commuters; there were eye-witnesses.

    The parking-lot security footage snapped still photos only; it did not take high-resolution high-speed video. Little can be determined about the initial microseconds of the crash from the "footage".

    Jet-fuel residue was found in the area, along with wreckage, such as one of the wheel assemblies that passed very far into the building.

    For one scientific study of the evidence, try here. In book form, try here.
