On September 11, 2001 tragedy struck, 2,966 people were killed and more then 6,000 others were injured when the twin towers were struck. At 8:45 a.m. a passenger jet struck the northern tower leaving the tower weak. At 9:03 a.m. another passenger jet crashed into the southern tower. At 9:43 a.m. the Pentagon was struck by Airlines flight 77 leaving a huge hole in the side. At 10:10 a.m. a plane crashed in western Pennsylvania carrying 40 passengers.
The passenger Boeing 767 that struck the northern tower was the first of the attack. The Boeing 767 was carrying 20,000 gallons worth of jet fuel. The planes crash left a giant hole in 80th floor of the tower. Another Boeing 767 struck the southern tower 18 minutes later . The world was in disbelieve as the towers were burning.
The western part of the Pentagon was struck by Airlines flight 77. The fuel from the plane burned the building and led to building damage. The pentagon attack killed 189 people of those people 125 of them were military personnel. United flight 93 was in flight when it was hijacked. The plain was controlled by hijackers when passengers on board fought back . The plane was crashed in a field in Pennsylvania , the plane was headed for the White house.
I think we could have avoided this incident by raising security at airports before the attack. The attack was a surprise to the United states. We should have been prepared for a attack before it happened.
