Yes, it is done by a competent pilot by reducing power while maintaining altitude until the desired airspeed is achieved and then lowering the nose ( at which point the aircraft starts to descend ) to maintain the desired airspeed. Flaps are further used to enable a steeper descent while maintaining a given airspeed.

For you non-pilots out there - point the nose down, you go faster, point the nose up, you slow down.  ::)

According to damage estimates at the Pentagon the estimated speed of Flight 77 when it hit the building was roughly 530 MPH.

I've flown a little bit - even had a pilot's license for a decade (until I let it lapse when I started traveling too much to really get the number of annual hours needed).  I know how to fly, and what can be done. 

As far as the crash speed, test results indicate something closer to 170 MPH, or 250 ft/s - not 530 MPH.

Don't know much about that one.
 
But, If you want to talk about Vince Foster I can tell you about that from some first hand knowledge.

Sorry, kind of forgot about this thread.

The 530 mph number I got was derived from black box data of Flight 77. I went to the site you linked to and I think you may have misinterpreted what they were trying to say.

At 170 mph, Flight 77 (based on weight etc) would be only about 10 mph above stall speed!

People forget how the WTC was built. Normally skyscrapers are built with an internal framework which the floors are attached to. But to maximize the office space, the WTC was built like a tube with all the strength on the outside, and a framework hung from the inner side of the outer walls. Go pull the tube out of a roll of paper towels. As long as the tube is unbroken, it will support a great deal of weight, against the force of gravity. Now take a pair of scissors and cut the tube. You'll find that the tube can support almost no weight at all. When the plane crashed into those particular buildings, they destroyed the structural integrity  of the outside load bearing walls. Then gravity takes over. And in this universe gravity pretty much always wins in the end. with the walls weakened, the WTC could no longer bear the weight of the upper floors down it comes, and as the floors pancake down, even more weight is accelerating into the floors below. BTW., on the skill of the pilots; isn't it true that more piloting skill is necessary to fly a small plane, whereas in a jumbo jet, much of the work is done by computers?
