This Week in History
September 11, 2001 - The worst terrorist attack in U.S. history occurred as
four large passenger jets were hijacked then crashed, killing nearly 3,000
persons. Four separate teams of Mideast terrorists, operating from inside the
U.S., boarded the morning flights posing as passengers, then forcibly
commandeered the aircraft. Two fully-fueled jumbo jets, American Airlines
Flight 11 carrying 92 people and United Airlines Flight 175 carrying 65
people, had departed Boston for Los Angeles. Both jets were diverted by the hijackers to New York City where they were piloted into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. The impact and subsequent fire caused both 110-story
towers to collapse, killing 2,752 persons including hundreds of rescue workers
and people employed in the towers. In addition, United Airlines Flight 93,
which had departed Newark for San Francisco, and American Airlines
Flight 77, which had departed Dulles (Virginia) for Los Angeles, were hijacked. Flight 77 with 64 people on board was diverted to Washington, D.C., then
piloted into the Pentagon building, killing everyone on board and 125 military personnel inside the building. Flight 93 with 44 people on board was also
diverted toward Washington but crashed into a field in Pennsylvania after passengers attempted to overpower the terrorists on board.
