I read through all the oral histories and copied all the quotes of the people who saw the planes hit and the plane debris on the street. Since then I've had my computer wiped but some of the quotes are still preserved on the David Icke Forum where I started a thread about this very subject ( NO PLANERS EXPOSED----->INSIDE+WeAreChangeColorado).
From the Oral Histories -
A - B
But then we are driving and now we are like,
we are about a half mile out, halfway from the World
Trade Center and we see this shiny object coming and me
and my partner are going, what the hell, what's wrong
with that plane. What is wrong with that plane. There
is something not right with that plane. And he just --
the tower blew.
As we exited the Battery Tunnel to
lower Manhattan, we proceeded to make a right
turn onto West Street where we were confronted
with a lot of debris in the street, airplane
debris, human remains and such.
Both towers were totally engulfed. People
were jumping out of the buildings. There was airplane
fuselage and landing gear around the site. Body parts,
victims' remains on the floor. There were some
injuries on the street. Some cars were on fire.
So they kind of had
everything blocked off and we kind of swerved around
debris from the plane, body parts pretty much
everywhere. That's the first time I've ever seen
anything like that.
At that time both buildings were going, both
planes had already hit the building, and we were just
standing there. I looked up, realized the
transmission, our transmission, from riding over the
rubble that was on the ground, the remains of the
plane, ruptured our transmission tank, so transmission
fluid was leaking.
Q. When you arrived there, did any civilians
report anything to you?
A. Yes. Numerous civilians were telling me that
a plane had hit the building. There were discrepancies
as to the type of plane. Some were saying it was a
Cessna or Leer jet type, a small jet plane. Some said
it was a large passenger plane. One person actually
said that it was like a military style plane that
actually shot missiles into the building.
We then hear this explosion. We hear
this explosion, and our first reaction is the
plane was lodged in the building and it exploded
or parts of it were still in the building and
Then people were screaming that another
plane hit. I'm like, no way, there's no way.
From where I was, I couldn't see the other tower.
I saw the one tower. I couldn't see the other
tower. They said another plane hit. So I'm
like, there's no way. More people were starting
to say it. Then it came over the radio.
We went up on the roof and got there just in
time to see the second plane hit the towers.
We approached the building, and we heard some
loud noise. We felt some rumbling, so we looked up,
and there was another plane coming in.
We were at a box for odour of gas in the
street on Church and Lispenard. We were
investigating that. We were just about ready to
take up from that box and come back when we heard
the roar of the engines of the plane. Before we
knew it, it was overhead. Within two seconds it
hit the north tower.
We all jumped on the rig. It was
Ladder 1, Engine 7, Battalion 1, Ladder 8, Engine
55, if I'm not mistaken. We headed down Canal
Street to the west side.
As we were proceeding through the Battery Park
tunnel, as we came out, we saw the second plane hit the
As we were taken up from the box, we were backing
out of 19th Street, and we heard a plane go over
our heads. So me and the backup man, Jimmy
Andruzzi, looked at each other. We realized it
was low. We actually mentioned it to each other.
We continued backing out into the street. Just a
minute later our officer told us that a plane had
hit the Trade Center and that we were going on
the second alarm.

A few minutes later I was watching the
TV, and I saw the airplane coming from the right
side of the television screen, and one second
later I saw the big explosion. All the guys were
in the kitchen, and everybody was going, "Oh."
Everybody was screaming.
There were two guys outside,
Firefighter Jackson and Firefighter Zechewytz.
They were outside looking at the sky.
Firefighter Jackson said, "Wow, look at this
airplane. It's flying so low." Maybe a minute
after that they heard us screaming in the
kitchen. They ran back, and sure enough, that
was probably the plane that crashed into the twin
towers. Once that second plane hit, pretty much
I knew we were going.
I looked out the window. I could see the
smoke blowing off the World Trade Center. Several
moments later I noticed a second plane and I commented
to myself, look at this nitwit, he's so close, and
before I realized it, he had crashed into the side of
the south tower. At that time I ran downstairs. I grabbed
some fire gear.
C - D
So I went to my office. I got a
video camera with a couple of tapes. I set it up on
the tripod in the window facing the Trade Center
enclosing the top of -- the top, more like where the
cash area was and I started the tape and as I was
getting my fire gear ready looking out the window
again, when we saw the second plane crash into the
second tower. I left the tape running and I knew it
was not an accident, you know, that this happened.
As I was going around the far side of the north tower,
I then saw the second plane hit the south tower.
While we were out operating, we heard the first
plane coming in. I turned around and I watched
the plane crash into the north tower ....
…. I was keeping an eye because the chauffeur was
hooking up to the standpipe. I was keeping an
eye, making sure he didn't get hit with anything.
It was at that time when I saw the
second plane hit the building. I called a
mayday. I told them the second plane hit the
south tower of the building.
As I’m staring at the hole in tower 1, I
walked across the street, across sixth ave
to the west side of sixth avenue, to see tower 2,
and at that time tower 2 was intact. It wasn’t touched
yet, I looked down at my son and I repeated
to him I couldn’t believe what was going on,
and I told him oh, my god, and I heard people
calling oh, my god, look, look, and as I looked
up, the second plane hit the second tower
and there was a humongous fireball rolling up the side
of the building.
We locked up the car, started heading across
Church Street when we heard a roar of a jet engine, as
if it was taking off in flight and we couldn't help but
look into the sky to see exactly what it was and yes,
it was a plane, just prior to striking the building and
the engines were revved up fully. From that you saw it
actually piercing the wall of the building with a large
amount of fire coming from it.
Then while I was standing in the parking lot,
that’s when I saw the plane crash into the second tower.
We both hear this rumble, and I felt a vibration, we looked slightly
to the left, all of us, there’s a whole bunch of us right next to my
vehicle, and here comes this plane, a huge plane. The lady next
to me says oh my god, it’s gonna hit the building. I didn’t want to give
her false information so I said Gee, I don’t think so, well I hope
not. I mean we’re looking at it sort of in three dimensions, so
I’m thinking it’s gonna go behind the building. From where we’re
standing, it’s gonna go right behind it, but it was too big and far
too low. At that moment I said it’s gonna hit, it’s actually gonna
hit. And it hit. She screamed, she said oh my god.
The second plane came in. It was the
biggest noise I ever heard in my life.
Q. Did you see the plane?
A. Yeah. We saw it, we heard it, we felt
the heat from it, the debris. We ducked under a
truck, Fire Patrol 3, I believe it was, parked
right over here. Just before -- because we
started running. It was just before the
pedestrian bridge at West and Vesey. It was
parked over here. Debris was falling and people
were running and panicking.
We heard the plane, we looked up. It was low enough that it
rattled the buildings we were standing at. We saw it come out from
behind the buildings and hit tower 1 and like I said, a fireball, looked
like 10 or 20 storeys big, shot out the south side of the tower and
then out the hole that the plane made going in.
Then as I made it through traffic and I was
going over the BQE extension to get back on to the
Battery Tunnel, I looked and I saw the second plane hit
Right before the tolls on the Brooklyn
side heading towards Manhattan at the Battery
Tunnel, we were sitting in traffic and we watched
United Flight 175 hit tower two, which was the
south tower of the World Trade Center.
As we were driving over the 59th Street
bridge, just looking out the window, we saw a plane hit
the World Trade Center, what we thought was a plane,
and out of disbelief, I was like did anybody else just
see that? They're like what? I said a plane just hit
the Trade Center. Everybody was like, oh, yeah,
right. When they looked, you could see the flames and
the smoke starting and they're like, wow, it must have
been one of the little planes. I said, no, it looked
like a jet.
We started heading down there towards Manhattan. We
were at the Bruckner Interchange when I saw the second plane hit the second tower.http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32324http://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/html/nyregion/20050812_WTC_GRAPHIC/met_WTC_histories_full_01.html
