What a tragic day in history, not just for aviation but for the world at large. On this day in 2000, nobody (besides the terrorists themselves) could have even considered such a meticulously planned devastating terror attack on American soil, involving thousands of innocent civilians.

This is a really interesting (however horrible) food for thought. Is it better that it crashed in that field? On one hand, it could have inflicted a lot more damage on whatever it’s intended target may be (potentially the White House, Capital Building, etc), but it’s downing still killed scores of people.

Aaaaaa good point did not think that it is better a crashed into an empty field rather than a much more populated area I’ll fix that. Thank you for letting me know.

I’m planning on doing a transcon tonight in memory of 9/11.

P.S. you might need to change your pfp to match the seriousness of the events, Tow Mater and 3000 deaths do not mix for me.

I feel both were targeted but luckily flight 93 wasnt able to cause more loss of life and flight 23 never left the ground, as it was most likely headed for DC aswell


Pentagon, Capital, White House were DC targets
This would effect the US Department of Defense, House of Congress, President and Executive Branch
