Remembering September 11

From a CBC News Online Indepth
“On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, four U.S. airliners became guided missiles when they were hijacked and unleashed on U.S. targets, killing more than 3,000 unsuspecting people. Two of the planes were crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York, sending the 110-storey landmarks crashing to the ground. A third plane was steered into the west wing of the Pentagon in Washington and a fourth crashed 120 km southeast of Pittsburgh, Penn.”
As the full extent of the attacks on the United States became clear, the CBC.ca team drops everything and springs into action to cover the only story that matters. The comprehensive CBC News Online Indepth on the subject is still online.
