Here is an actual file photo of N612UA - the aircraft alleged to have impacted the South Tower (Flight 175):
New York - John F. Kennedy International (Idlewild) (JFK / KJFK)
USA - New York, April 28, 2001
Please take a look at the following comparisons:
We will observe that the nose section of a 200 series, A, is shorter than the wing assembly, B. Whereas for the 300 series A is longer than B.
767-200 => A:B = 190:200 = 0.95:1, i.e. A is less than B
767-300 => A:B = 221:200 = 1.105:1, i.e. A is greater than B
The NIST frames of the aircraft that impacted the South Tower give us A:B = 20.76:19.91 = 1.04:1
In other words, A is greater than B. Therefore, this plane's fuselage is too long to be a Boeing 767-222.

I am sorry if I have aroused your ire but I was only speculating on a possible answer for one of the phenomena seen on that day, unless of course it has been proven that the highlights were simply sun reflections, one which could help explain how the a/c sliced so easily through the outer steel columns of the tower and then produced a large fireball.
It is not exactly a pet theory of mine more a point for discussion and not intended to promote any infighting etc.
Hello again O892,
Thank you for your astute observations, and I assure you that MOST of the problems that I referenced are on THIS side of the "pond." It would be interesting for a British fellow like you and a mountain/desert creature like myself (both having similar backgrounds) to compare notes.
