There seems to be a bit of "cyberspace" confusion as to how exactly the media could have got "on the spot, up to the minute" aerial camera shots of the rapidly unfolding events of 911.
Here, for instance, is "Say It Like (He Thinks) It Is" genghis6199, baiting our own esteemed Sanders (aka rewind @ PI) over at the 9/11 Truth Movement Forum.

and when you make your claim about the 'September Clues Empire State Building' blooper. can you please provide the buildings names. or another angle?. So we're looking for two 60 or 70 story buildings, [simple perspective] past the empire state. I think the chances of them finding two large buildings near the same spot, and get a camera up there by 8.58 are JUST ABOUT ZERO.
I believe the claim [social service] is that it would be difficult to get a camera up there in minutes, but to believe they got two, on separate buildings, with separate news teams, with very similar angles, that are hard to distinguish, IS VERY UNLIKELY.
I have to agree with him. it would be miraculous. I suggest impossible.

I suppose genghis6199 has not been paying attention to the proliferation of remote camera technology that we've witnessed over the last couple of decades (and in a general sense: anyone interested in the rise of Big Brother IMO should be!)
Here's a (partial) list of the many Live Cams that are in operation in Manhattan:

Here's an image of a current model Outdoor Remote Controlled Camera System, the Canon NU - 700:
Here's some info from Canon:
"The† new NU-700P features Canonís renowned P/T/Z technology and combines a† 3CCD Canon video camera with a built-in 20X optical zoom lens and 5X digital function for a powerful 100X† zoom range - all contained under a rugged outdoor housing with rain wiper. When connected to Canonís optional network-camera server, the system can be interfaced with the Internet or a LAN via a non-proprietary protocol control panel or computer, enabling image acquisition and the control of camera functions including camera pan, tilt, zoom, and focus from anywhere with network access.
Canon anticipate that the new NU-700P will find applications in many broadcast situations, including† weather cameras; outside prominent buildings and locations; concerts and stadiums; horse racing and motor racing; and reality TV. Creative broadcasters will be quick to recognize and exploit the new NU-700Pís ability to supply low cost solutions and quality coverage in a wide diversity of locations."

This system is currently being utilized by Earthcam.
"With more than 180,000 daily visitors and 300 million page views per month, EarthCam specializes in providing Webcam technology and managed services to a wide variety of industries and users. EarthCam cameras provide live video over IP of everything from construction sites and highway traffic to foreign tourist attractions and Times Square billboards."
Earthcam Chooses Canon Nu - 700
Obviously there is a wide variety of remote camera systems available for many different types of application.
Here is a Towercam shot from the top of ESB affording us a view of Manhattan looking Southerly towards the WTC Towers:
and here, ironically and poignantly, is a Towercam shot from the top of WTC2 affording us a view of Manhattan looking Northerly towards the ESB (sadly, this view is no longer available).
So, in closing, all those that have formerly been confused, e.g. genghis6199 and socialservice, need no longer be.
Before any "researcher" starts speculating about the wonders of the new and exotically intriguing Geospatial Intelligence Technology and its connection to the FCS (Future Combat System) I think it might be prudent to have at least a basic grasp of the Audio Visual Technology that is already widely in use and has been for several years.
After all, any diligent researcher surely needs to have SOME kind of knowledge about the subject he/she is attempting to inform the public about.
hope this helps, FfG (IMG:http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif)
