2001 – September 11th Terrorist Attacks
Mono Vista, CA 95370
September 11th marks the anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks upon the United States, in which hijackers took control of four U.S. commercial aircraft and targeted significant building landmarks. The two World Trade Center Towers were each struck by separate planes, the Pentagon by a third plane, and a fourth plane – United Airlines Flight 93 – crashed into a Pennsylvania field after an attempt by some passengers to regain control and divert the plane from its intended (yet unknown) target.
