Hollow Tube…?

World Trade Center

World Trade Center under construction, November 21, 1969

Does this look like a “Hollow Steel Shaft”, as claimed in the official FEMA report. This image was taken during the construction of the Twin Towers, in New York city. The “hollow tube” construction myth has been used by many disinformation websites.

“For the dimensions, see FEMA report, “World Trade Center Building Performance Study,” undated. In addition, the outside of each tower was covered by a frame of 14-inch-wide steel columns; the centers of the steel columns were 40 inches apart. These exterior walls bore most of the weight of the building. The interior core of the buildings was a hollow steel shaft, in which elevators and stairwells were grouped. Ibid. For stairwells and elevators, see Port Authority response to Commission interrogatory, May 2004.” -Bold added by author
