I agree it could be just coincidence, more so than the other obvious examples out there. I suppose they're not exactly going to put a passenger airliner in an ad for a TV because it wouldnt reflect the theme of what they were promoting and so would've looked very out of place. The jet was there to emphasise the dramatic impact of the big screen. I think you can easily interpret ads like that in two ways and each sound plausible. It can also be a good way for those "in the know" who were behind the ad to come out and say it's nothing more than coincidence and the reason they showed the WTC and the jet flying almost into it was merely to demonstrate visually the power of the TV. Nice little cover story you could say.
