NEVER FORGET, United As One

Today is 9/11. Today 18 years ago something really terrible happened. The United States of America was under attack. The twin towers. The Pentagon. All hit with terrorist attacks and a fourth failed attempt on the White House. We lost 2,500 + people. 2,500+ people who didn’t return to there loved ones. So, today I did a flight around NYC and honored those people who lost there lives tragically today 18 years ago. I took a United A320 for 2 laps around NYC. The reason for United is that the name reminds me how our nation became UNITED AS ONE.

I have a piece of the twin towers, since my father was on a live call to his boss on the 101-106th floor when the aircraft crashed.

Yes very sad. But in my eyes without 9/11 would we even be as safe as we are know?

As sad as it was, we learned something huge from it that changed the way we see air travel today so this would never happen again.

Yeah, he was round the other side of the world, in London. He’s still managed to work there for another 18 years after it. That’s overall about 26 years of his 47 yearold life.

So was Your dad’s boss at the trade center when it happened?
But ether way that’s cool that you have a piece.
And didn’t one of the engines from one of the aircraft land in the street, correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t two 767s that where flown into the twin towers?

I think it were 2 767’s. I remember hearing about the engine vaguely in a documentary. My dad’s boss was on the 101-106th floor. The aircraft crashed on the 93-99th floor. Scary. We don’t know how he died. I may research that a little more.

After a little more research:

  • He was on the 104th floor, 5 away from the crash.

Sadly he might’ve been killed in the initial impact from the explosion but I don’t think so,
What I want to know is why did they lock the doors to the roof kinda stupid if you ask me, if they would’ve been unlocked your dad’s boss might’ve been alive to tell the story today

He was killed after. My.dad was on the phone to him when the aircraft crashed into the building. He phoned his wife after, my dad heard the whole conversation. He said he would be fine, and not to worry. Also he was the Vice President of the 3,000 employee company.
