On this week’s episode of 9/11 Free Fall, former controlled demolition technician Tom Sullivan joins host Andy Steele to explain the process involved in leveling skyscrapers and offer his insights into the destruction of the World Trade Center.
Many people will remember Tom from AE911Truth’s signature film 9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out. We are grateful to have Tom back almost a decade later for this fascinating half-hour interview.
Welcome to 9/11 Free Fall. I’m the host Andy Steele. Today we’re joined by Tom Sullivan. Tom was employed by Controlled Demolition Incorporated for three years as an explosives loader and as an industrial photographer. He worked on projects such as the Seattle Kingdome, Three Rivers Stadium, Philadelphia Naval Hospital, KeySpan Gas Holders, and others. He’s also a signatory to the AE911Truth truth petition calling for a new investigation into the destruction of the three towers in New York on September 11th as well as one of the experts featured in our documentary, 9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out. Tom, welcome to the show.
I’m glad to be with you today.
I want everyone to get a better sense of who all our guests are on the show and get your personal 9/11 story. I think it’s important for the oral history. So please first elaborate on your history and controlled demolition. And then also tell us where you were on the day of September 11th and how you heard the news.
Well, I was in Annapolis and I watched it on the TV, and when I saw it I immediately knew it was controlled demolition. It was not an airplane. No question when I saw it, and of course I didn’t… nothing changed my mind.
Well, obviously from all of your experience in bringing down the Seattle Kingdome, and I know we played that clip on our webinars every time it comes around in the cycle and takes a lot of knowledge and a lot of effort to be able to have that knowledge, so obviously you knew what you were looking at the day that it happened. Tell us more about your background.
