How could you have refuted it when the molten flow is in fact, molten aluminum? The fact that molten aluminum is flowing from the location where the airframe of United 175 came to rest and the silvery droplets are another clue the flow is aluminum. To further add, temperatures were high enough to melt aluminum, but far too low to melt steel, which would have made it impossible for that flow to have been steel.
I have seen molten aluminum before and in fact, I was near this C-141, tail number; 0253, when this photo was taken. The building in the background is the P-16, jet engine shop, which is where I would be eventually assigned during my employment with Raytheon Aerospace as I was still employed with the Air Force when this photo was taken. A few years later, the Air Force provided me with a hangar (hangar 843) to set up my own airframe shop in which to provide structural support for the jet engine shop. My hangar is located behind the photographer who took this photo and I employed 12 technicians, some of which were electricians, machinist, airframe technicians, two of which I assigned to P-16 for direct support, and another to the composite shop and a painter.
This harden aluminum droplet came from the left wing.
Now, let's take another look at the molten flow from WTC2 and notice the silvery droplets and understand that the airframe of United 175 is sitting above the molten flow.
