    World trade center hit by plane

    Just heard this on the news. Apparently a twin engined plane went straight through it about 18 floors from the top - does anyone know any more details?

    An airplane has crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City, according to television reports.
    Smoke could be seen pouring out of a gaping hole in the upper floors of one of the towers.

    Apparently as the news crews were there showing the damage, another object hit the other tower..plane or whatever. I cannot get to ANY news site at this time..CNN, abcnews.com, msnbc...even yahoo news is down.


    ::::UPDATE::::::


    According to my friends wife on the phone...shes watching CNN...someone hijacked a 747 and slammed it into the WTC.

    The other one was a passenger plane also.

    I just saw it. I'm watching it now live on CNN (via channel TEN).

    2 planes have just crashed into the World Trade Centre in New York. There's television footage of the second place crashing into it - it looks like a large passenger jet.

    The two planes crashed within 18 minutes of each other.

    It could be a terrorist attack. The skyscraper has been the object of a terrorist attack in the past.

    Terrorist attck on your country Mr Bush? I don't think so. It's terrorism against the World Trade Center, not your country.


    New information: it was a Boeing 767 from Boston.

    Amazing!

    My history is not very good, but I think this is a new era of terroism...

    CNN is saying one of the jets was a 767 from Boston...

    Horrid!

    Two aircraft, in what appears to be a deliberate terrorist attack, have crashed into both towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, according to Sky News.
    The US Federal Bureau of Investigation are investigating reports of a plane hijacking prior to the crashes.
    The first airplane, possibly a small passenger aircraft, exploded into the northern tower at 8.48am local time.
    A second, lower-flying airplane flew straight into the second tower within 18 minutes of the first one. This tower is home to the headquarters of New York's Port Authority.
    Joe Traffenburg, speaking on CNN, said: "The (second) plane was flying low and we just looked at it and it went into the building kamikaze-style. Then there was a mass explosion with windows flying everywhere. It was horrible."
    The World Trade Center is 110 stories (1,360ft). Black smoke and fire could be seen pouring out of the upper floors of the towers.
    An eyewitness said: "I just saw a huge ball of fire on top and then the smoke seemed to simmer down."
    A rescue operation is under way.
    More reports to come.

    It happened in our country. Chill.

    I was woken up, basically, to see all this. Bizarre. The first plane alone was huge, but the second one is just surreal, to borrow someone else's word on the matter. I don't really know what to think, other than this: we're going to hear an awful lot about this over the next couple of weeks.

    As religiously different as we all may be, I hope everyone here is praying for the victims.
