This "iron cross" (actually steel support beams) was found like this at the site and still stands there today (5/12/04). The material hanging on the cross-member looks like a cloth that could blow off at any time, but in actuality is a solid piece of aircraft aluminum fused to the cross. It was found in this condition.

To get a little perspective on the amount of destruction, this map shows the area destroyed. The two white squares are the Twin Towers. At the top is WTC 7, now being rebuilt; the last to fall, the first to be rebuilt.

World Financial Center towers "next door" to the WTC. Some of the WFC were destroyed by material blown out by the jets or by the collapse of the nearby towers.
