"Some time ago, in a study on the point of view (POV) of the witnesses at the Pentagon, I contacted Steve Riskus - one of the most discussed that witnesses at the scene Steve Riskus is famous for having released a few among the most popular shots played to a handful of seconds from the event and very determined to be a witness to the dynamics of attack.
To better understand the testimony I have provided two aerial photos of Google Earth, an inclined plane and the other three dimensions, of which he traced with his own hand to the location where he was and that the portion of the Flight Path was able to follow (red x and line) ' interior of one's visual field. Following his statements about what he saw and the two maps drawn by him:
RISKUS: OK I marked the pictures the best I could . Its tough to locate exactly where I was with the scale of those photos but I am pretty sure I marked the general area where I was.
RISKUS: From my perspective the plane crossed in front of me  from my right to left. As you can see, there were trees on my right hand side that blocked my vision of the plane approaching from any great distance.
"I stress the fact that I purposely left the positions of piles killed and the position of the driver Lloyd England, as well as other famous witnesses - in order to provide every piece Riskus engagement for its reconstruction.
From the two tracks and the statements attached shows just one thing. Riskus found itself very near where the plane at an angle almost perpendicular to the direction of the car he was driving.
At this point, given the important coordinates provided by Steve, I have proposed to create a photographic reconstruction using a frame made of a real recovery near the point where it was Riskus and inserting an image in a 757 AA exactly at the point where he had shown in the other two maps. The result is as follows:"
(Aldo: This part is great...)
And these here are the statements of Steve Riskus to view (of) the image (below):
RISKUS: Honestly, the photo  with the superimposed plane on it looks almost exactly what I saw that day. I dont feel the need to draw anything with that already presented.
"Steve returns to confirm my reconstruction validating the triangulation of data supplied by it. It's clear that we are facing a trend (that) is completely in line with the North Path described by many other witnesses on the scene.
The great proximity to the passage of the plane, which is the key to the analysis, was also described in some of his previous statements:"
...I was close enough (about 100 feet or so) that I could see the "American Airlines" logo on the tail as it headed towards the building... It was not completely level, but it was not going straight down, kind of like it was landing with no gear down...
"Here, even Steve claims to have spotted the plane only 100 feet or 30 meters, providing evidence that leaves no doubt on the proximity of the witness with respect to the plane. Let us remember then that Steve refers to the trees to the right that do nothing but give further credibility to his testimony about the location of sighting. In fact the only line of trees right on that stretch of road is exactly the one that surrounds the Arlington National Cemetery.
Below is a comparison with the Flight Path officer who has a distance and an angle of approach than Steve is completely different:"
"It must be added that Riskus claims to have seen the impact and speaks of the poles down.
Regarding the statement on the poles is evident that this is deductible posthumous event since Steve was not able, from his position as the sighting plane ticket, to see the stakes in places hundreds of feet in area on a which is also never passed.
And in fact in a recent email exchange:"
Q: Steve, did you see the plane hitting light poles? Q: Steve, did you see the plane hitting light poles? Did you see light poles falling down? Did you see light poles falling down?
RISKUS: I didn't see the plane hit the poles and I didn't see the light poles falling down. I saw Them after They Were Already on the ground.
"Steve said he had not seen the plane hit the poles or to have seen them fall to the ground - but had subsequently raised to the vision of the posts already on the ground.
Steve Riskus describes and confirms a trend in north path completely with the other issued by the Arlington National Security witnesses and those interviewed by the CIT."

This is the first image Riskus claimed to take "one minute" after the explosion:
Researcher 22205 made this excellent breakdown of where Riskus' images were taken from
The distance from his alleged POV to where the aircraft is claimed to crossed Route 27 at lightpole 1 is around 1,300-1,400ft.
Nice find Aldo. I hope there are more "Route 27 entry point" witnesses out there.
