Because in his operative contribution to the 9/11 bottom line, Briendel says this very heavy airplane landing gear was gently placed in this rooftop position of the Federal Building by the loving hand of God---and like Loyde England's taxi, the surfaces received nary a scratch in the process...no wait a minute, I'm saying that.
"This is part of the landing gear from one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11. I was doing the orange safety netting on the Federal Building, which is directly across the street from Ground Zero. The FBI and Postal Inspectors didn't allow anyone on the upper roof where the landing gear and other airplane parts had fallen. I had access because we were putting up the safety netting to keep the broken glass from falling on the rescue workers in the street. As of this date, I have not seen another picture of this landing gear on the Federal Building!" Cite as: LOUIS J. BRIENDEL, Image #402, The September 11 Digital Archive, 17 June 2002,I didn't know that certain workers earned an "outdoor rooftop specialist" credential. Briendel is on roofs all around the site. But what do you make of the details of his toy bus story? Was it found, or was it placed there? And if placed, then...by whom, and what does it mean?
"While working on the Millenium Hotel roof, which is directly across the street from Ground Zero, this tiny toy rubber bus was found. The toy bus was placed on the ledge of the Millenium roof wall so that Ground Zero could be seen in the background. This picture was donated to the September 11, Photo Project, which is presently on tour to cities throughout the country."

Or do you think he had some help? Come on now---really?
This is a picture of a strip of microfilm which was found weeks after September 11, three blocks away at 2 Chase Plaza. The microfilm contains blueprints from 1 World Trade Center, all that remains of this strip of film is 72 frames. The film is burnt at one end and has a few holes in it. The blueprints are not the original ones made by Minoru Yamasaki. The blueprints are of the Bank of America, the Chanq HWA Bank, and a few of the B-Level Parking Areas and rooms. This microfilm is believed to be an archival film of different aspects from projects at 1 World Trade Center. The Bank of America was contacted concerning this strip of microfilm. The Bank of America stated that they did contract work in the early part of 1993, but never had the blueprints put to microfilm. After some research, it is believed that the Port Authority of New York made the microfilm for archival purposes and that the microfilm was stored in the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Photographic Services Office at 1 World Trade Center. In light of all that destruction that morning of September 11, it's amazing this 72 frames of microfilm survived! Truly a priceless historical artifact!Cite as: LOUIS J. BRIENDEL, Image #401, The September 11 Digital Archive, 17 June 2002,With momentum, that jet plane landing gear is so heavy it would have punctured the roof top, delving many stories inside---it was traveling at 500 miles per hour! And lastly, why was the Federal Office Building referenced as the Federal Post Office in so many of the media stories? Didn't "we" sell the postal service some years ago?
