I think most people realize by now any potential hijacker is likely to be beaten to death before they get to the cockpit, no one is going to let it happen again.

That aside, i really like all of the wtc buildings. I hope they make a 5 and 6, since there is a 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7. I've heard the now empty lot there could be a building 5.

Yup. Any hijacked plane even pointed in the direction of NYC is going to be shot down within minutes, too.

1WTC could eat planes for breakfast.

Core forms are already above street level. However this doesn't mean that the basement levels are already complete, there's still plenty of work to do.

I would say that there are still 3 basement level floors to go before the street level will be reached.
