Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
now you're clutching at straws.  gravity is a minor matter in this type of event - with forward velocity equaling 520 mph?  it affects lift and drag, but we're not looking at aeronautical effects, we're talking about destructive effects of impact

and we're not talking about the molecular level either

this is the FIRST incident of a plane "vaporising" due to an impact and you can't even see any metal vapour coating on the buildings or on the cable spools in front of the building, about 15 feet from the impact point.  amazing!  a plasma effect from Jet-A1 fuel (which has about the same properties as diesel fuel)
