 The September 11 Attack on the Pentagon  
 
Pentagon’s outer “E Ring” collapsed

These images disprove conspiracy theories that falsely claim a missile, not a plane, hit the Pentagon.

A portion of the Pentagon’s outer “E Ring” collapsed 19 minutes after the building was struck. Photographs taken during this brief period, despite often being obscured partially by smoke or firefighter’s foam spray, show the initial damage caused by the aircraft. (DoD)
