What Happened to “World Trade Centre Building 7” on 9/11?

World Trade Centre 7

By Wake Up World

There is so much information available that debunks the official United States Governments story of what happened on September 11, 2001, so I thought that I would start to bring it all together here on Wake Up World. Let’s start with the collapse of the lesser known building on that fateful day — World Trade Centre # 7 or WTC7.

Most people outside the United States are not aware that a 3rd building mysteriously collapsed into its own footprint approximately 7 hours after the Twin Towers were taken down. In fact, a Zogby poll of Americans in 2006 found 43% were not aware that WTC7 had even collapsed.

The original WTC7 building was a 47-story steel frame skyscraper and was part of the World Trade Center complex. Built in 1984, it would have been the tallest high-rise in 33 states in the United States. It collapsed at 5:20 pm on September 11, 2001. It was not hit by an airplane and suffered minimal damage compared to other buildings much closer to the Twin Towers.

The official story from FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) according to their report is that  “FEMA made preliminary findings that the collapse was not primarily caused by actual impact damage from the collapse of 1  WTC and 2  WTC but by fires on multiple stories ignited by debris from the other two towers that continued unabated due to lack of water for sprinklers or manual fire fighting”. The full report can be downloaded here.

Here are some interesting facts about WTC7 from RememberBuilding7, a non-partisan effort led by 9/11 family members to raise awareness of  the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7.

Some Facts About 9/11

1. If fire caused Building 7 to collapse, it would be the first ever fire-induced collapse of a steel-frame high-rise.

2. Building 7’s collapse was not mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report.

3. 1.500+  architects and engineers have signed a petition calling for a new investigation that would include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives for the collapse of Building 7.

4. Numerous witnesses say the possibility of demolishing Building 7 was widely discussed by emergency personnel at the scene and advocated by the building’s owner. Watch WTC7 owner Larry Silverstein confirm that the building was to be taken down here

To give you a quick idea as to what we are talking about, here is a  6 second video that shows the WTC7 building collapsing (no sound). Just like a controlled demolition, it falls directly into its own footprint at free fall speed.

Here is a 2:30 minute video that shows complied footage of the event from different angles (no sound).


Did anyone know that WTC7 was going to collapse? Well it appears that multiple news services announced that the WTC7 building had collapsed before the actual implosion. The below BBC reporter advises that WTC7 has collapsed, but as you will see over her right shoulder, the building is smoking, but has not collapsed! There is a lot of information on “foreknowledge” on this top. Have a look at the Google search results here. It amazes me at times, how careless mass media is in covering up their propaganda. Or are they just used to “the people” buying into anything they spout!

Blueprint for Truth

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth now have 1,501 verified architectural and engineering professionals who question the official 9/11 story. They have released the below trailer for their DVD “Blueprint for Truth”. The full 2 hour long movie can be watched here.

Summary provided by Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth

WTC Building # 7, a 47-story high-rise that was not hit by an aeroplane, exhibited all the characteristics of classic controlled demolition with explosives:

1. Rapid onset of collapse

2. Sounds of explosions at ground floor  – a second before the building’s destruction

3. Symmetrical “structural failure”  – through the path of greatest resistance  – at free-fall acceleration

4. Imploded, collapsing completely, and landed in its own footprint

5. Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds

6. Expert corroboration from the top European controlled demolition professional

7. Foreknowledge of “collapse” by media, NYPD, FDNY

In the aftermath of WTC7’s destruction, strong evidence of demolition using incendiary devices was discovered:

8. FEMA finds rapid oxidation and intergranular melting on structural steel samples

9. Several tons of molten metal reported by numerous highly qualified witnesses

10. Chemical signature of the incendiary thermite found in solidified molten metal, and dust samples

WTC7 exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire:

1. Slow onset with large visible deformations

2. Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, to the side most damaged by the fires)

3. Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel

4. High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never collapsed.
