UPDATE 9/14/09:

Matt has determined that John did not film the second shot on 9/11 ...
the shot shown on cnn, abc , and globally viewed under the current name international shot.

This forces the honest mind to reflect back on our previous determination
about why John was resistant to continuing this caught-off-guard conversation
about his 9/11 experience, his acknowledgment(?) of filming the second impact,
& ultimately why he wouldn't have called back.

shure: You were in the news chopper 7 on the day of 9/11, right?
j delgiorno: Yes
shure: Ok, were you working the camera? (brief moment of silence) The reason why I am sking you is I am doing an aniversary story on 9/11 for the up comming aniversary.
j delgiorno: Ok
shure: 'Cause you guys were the only ones to capture the second hit on video right?
**j delgiorno: Right, right. Now are you doing this for a station, or ..
shure: No I live in Canada and I am just doing for a paper over here.
j delgiorno: Oh, Ok.
shure: Um, I was just wondering, so you were the camera man at the time?
j delgiorno: Yes, I was the reporter and the camera operator.
shure: And who was the pilot on that day? Was it Mike Dylan?
j delgiorno: I am in the middle of something, I'm gonna give you a call back.*

... the rest of the conversation is John Delgorno pursuing further who shure is affiliated with,
and disclosing that it was a FLIR camera he was operating from Chopper 7,
not a wescam.

*says he will call back and take Shures info. I presume, he would find a website that contains accusation about the witnesses on 9/11 being fakes.

**his answer to the detail in shures question "Cause you guys were the only ones to capture the second hit on video right?" ... states "right", but is almost interrupting the question being asked w/ concern for being unaware of who he is talking to & what purposes his answers/voice would be used for. This concern remains through the short lived conversation.
