To The Future

A local symposium about the future of aerospace has attracted the attention – and indignation – of a group of engineers that was denied participation.

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth wanted to set up a table alongside other symposium participants today at Lockheed Martin in Newtown Township, but the local chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, sponsor of the symposium, denied the application.

The 9/11 group contends that official reports describing the fall of the World Trade Towers on Sept. 11, 2001, paint a false picture of how Building 7 collapsed. It fell not because of fire, as the report describes, but because an unknown group deliberately planted explosives in the building, according to the group.

Klaus Dannenberg, deputy executive director of the American Institute, said it’s just unreasonable to include the group in this symposium, which is about the next generation of aerospace, including advancements in controls, aircraft design and materials.
