This is the ruptured propane tank that both the
US Govt and the producers of Waco: A New Revelation (WANR) claim to
have exploded. The producers of WANR claim that this tank ruptured
and exploded just after a demolition charge exploded. They claim
that it was planted on the roof of the adjacent concrete structure
seen in the background behind the tank.
This is another view of the ruptured tank,
concrete structure and another propane tank. This one appears to be
in relatively good condition. This "Un-Exploded Tank" didn't move
during the entire 51-day siege. It has been located on aerial photos
taken on February 28, 1993 and is in the same position shown here.
This is the unexploded propane tank mentioned by Gordon Novel in his
1996 AFN radio network interview.
This is an aerial view of the same scene. The
ruptured tank is clearly visible as is the concrete structure. One
end of the unexploded propane tank is visible.
This is another aerial view of the same scene. In
this one, the unexploded propane tank and concrete structure are
clearly visible and the ruptured tank is partially obscurred. Note
the location of the hole in the roof of the structure and it's
relative location to the two propane tanks.
This is an overhead shot of Mt. Carmel. There is
a dark spot in the middle of the concrete pad on the ground adjacent
to the vaut, which is located at the base of the tower behind the
"unexploded" propane tank circled in blue.
This was taken from the rear of Mt. Carmel. Note
that the dark spot seen in the previous photo is not visible in this
This was taken from the front and side of Mt.
Another front shot of Mt. Carmel. Again, the dark
spot is not visible in this image.
This next section looks at the aerial FLIR shots
of Mt. Carmel in an attempt to locate both propane tanks.
The "unexploded" propane tank is visible in this
FLIR image. The location of the ruptured tank shows no distictive
This is another FLIR image taken while Mt. Carmel
was burning. The "unexploded" propane tank is visible, but there is
no distinctive shapes in the area of the ruptured tank.
