You will find the pertinent passage on page 45 of the NIST report.

Here is the pdf -- a quick 5 mg download:

Here is the passage on page 45. I have hi-lited the key phrases:

In Stage 2, the north face descended at gravitational acceleration, as the buckled columns provided negligible support to the upper portion of the north face. This free fall drop continued for approximately 8 stories or 32.0 m (105 ft), the distance traveled between times t = 1.75 s and t = 4.0 s.

For those who do not know physics, "gravitational acceleration" means free fall.

The next page (p 46) has a graph where the free fall of WTC-7 is plotted for approximately 2 seconds.

I know there are people of integrity here in the US. Very few of them can be found on this board.

I post for thinking people who occasionally drop into the forum. With a few exceptions, the residents are a bunch of idiots.

As Allen Dulles said in defense of the Warren Commission Report on the JFK assassination: "Don't worry, Americans do not read reports."
