One world trade center is on its way to becoming the most famous building in the world not because of its height but because on what the building represents.

1-5 WTC are all Towers as is 7. 6 WTC will most likely be the PAC if anything down the line. There was talks some time ago as having tower 5 as a hotel or as a mixed office residential but nothing was ever confirmed, we will find out in time...

I thought tower one was taller because there used to be a canteen on the 43th floor.

Its not that easy man. Not to mention the fact that 2 wtc is a larger 400 meter building while 4 wtc is a smaller 298 meter building. Don't expect to see 2 WTC for a long time, and possibly never...

Of course we would all love to see 2WTC, but it's not about what we want, it's about what NYC needs, and their isn't enough money to build something that isn't needed right now.

They didn't call them twins because they were the same height, they called them twins because they looked the same. I don't understand what hard to get about that, I know lots of twins who aren't the same height.

NASA 905
NASA 905 was the first SCA. It was obtained from American Airlines in 1974. Shortly after acceptance by NASA, the SCA flew a series of wake vortex research flights at the Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Calif., in a study to seek ways of reducing turbulence produced by large aircraft.
Following the wake vortex studies, NASA 905 was modified by Boeing to its present SCA configuration and the aircraft was returned to Dryden for its role in the 1977 Space Shuttle Approach and Landing Tests (ALT). This series of eight captive and five free flights with the orbiter prototype Enterprise, in addition to ground taxi tests, validated the aircraft's performance as an SCA, in addition to verifying the glide and landing characteristics of the orbiter configuration — paving the way for orbital flights.

what he said, wish it was me. That's how they tested the shuttle, strapped to the back of the SCA. Self-proclaimed internet experts, I love to see them reprimanded.

It is quite an interesting thing isn't it haha, I never knew that they weren't exactly the same either, but nevertheless it wasn't that major

I'm sorry I didn't count test flights, or prototypes. Space Shuttle Enterprise
It's the oldest at 40, but it didn't go outerspace lol.
