There has been some discrepancy as to where the taxi
cab was positioned.
Pictures tell the story well, if we look at them in
Note in this first picture the cab is next to the
Also note that there is a direct line between the tree ( in the
middle of the picture) and the left part of the Pentagon collapsed
wall. Again, note that the is a direct line between the camera, the
cab, and the right side of the collapsed wall.
In the photo below, using the angle of the
camera and the satalite photo,
with triangulation we can determine where the cab was (and was
not). The Yellow lines show the full view
of the camera.
The white line, shows the rightmost edge of the tree on the
This white line follows through to the left portion of the
collapsed part of the Pentagon wall.
The purple line shows the path drawing a straight line from the
camera, through the cab, to the right side of the collapsed wall of
the Pentagon. The Orange
arrow shows the overpass tree.
The light blue arrow shows the radio tower

the picture below, a rendition by another site showing that the cab
and pole are behind the concrete barrier. Using the sat photo
above, the line of sight of the white line would go straight
through the cab, and the cab would be in the LEFT side of the top
picture, behind the tree, and would be barely visible, if at all
being partially hidden by the tree.
This area between the purple and white arrows indicate the viewing
area between the tree and the base of the overpass sign
For the other site to be correct, the cab would have to be on the
very left of this viewing area.
We know it is not here. It is to the right, through the purple
line. The cab is actual partially hidden by the overpass sign
Note on the picture above, there is
ONE white highway divider
line between the overpass sign and the car, with one more white
line, partially under the car.
The next white line (to the south, or bottom) is about 20 feet
BEHIND the overpass
One More Time ! View the towerhouse, cab
and camera angle.
There is a straight line going UNDER the
The cab is hidden by the base of the overpass sign and radio tower,
but it is there we know from other pics, and the white car is
This is the angle of the above picture. There is no
way that the cab was near the overpass and past the tree.
It was just a few feet from the base of the overpass sign.
The tree is NOT EVEN VISIBLE in this picture.
To the right of the generator there is a break in
the roof gable. If you follow the line through, just to the right
of the roof gable turn to the edge of the overpass sign, and back
to the camera, the cab falls to the right of it. Closser to the
overpass sign, and not the tree.
Note on the picture below, there are 2 white highway divider lines
between the overpass sign and the cab with one partially under the
cab. Remember, the satalite photo shows the next "southern" white
line is 20 feet behind the overpass sign, and would not be visable
in this photo.
This pic shows the taxi about 50 feet from the
If you look at the sat photo and put the cab at 50 ft away from the
overpass sign, then it would be behind the concrete wall. Also if
you compare this to the first picture, we can determine that the
cab was no more than 10 ft from the overpass sign.
