The following composite photos give an idea of the size of the initial impact hole, which was substantially wider than the height of the Pentagon facade. I have annotated the composite with features visible in the alternate photos. The area of breached limestone is indicated in red, other substantial areas of impact damage are shown in green, non-load bearing spiral columns still attached to the second floor are indicated in orange, and stripped load bearing columns (in this case, columns 18 and 19) are indicated in purple. The line of vertical displacement at column 11 is indicated in blue. The relevant heights and widths (as indicated in the After Action Report Damage Plan and other official sources) are indicated in yellow.
