    Planes Crash Into World Trade Center

    Associated Press
    Tuesday, September 11, 2001; 9:08 AM


    NEW YORK An aircraft crashed into the upper floors of one of the World Trade Center towers Tuesday morning, and black smoke poured out of two gaping holes, witnesses said. Shortly afterward a second explosion rocked the other tower.

    There was no immediate word on injuries or fatalities in the disaster, which happened shortly before 9 a.m.

    The plane was coming in low and ... it looked like it hit at a slight angle," said Sean Murtagh, a CNN vice president, the network reported.

    Large holes were visible in two sides of the 110-story building, one of landmark twin towers.

    There was no immediate word on injuries or fatalities in the twin disasters, which happened shortly before 9 a.m. and then right around 9 a.m.

    The towers were struck by bombers in February 1993.

    "The plane was coming in low and ... it looked like it hit at a slight angle," said Sean Murtagh, a CNN vice president, the network reported.

    Large holes were visible in sides of the 110-story buildings, landmark twin towers.

    The tops of the twin towers were obscured by the smoke.

    Thousands of pieces of what appeared to be office paper came drifting over Brooklyn, about three miles from the tower, one witness said.

    The center bombingon Feb. 26, 1993, killing six people and injured more than 1,000 others.

    In 1945, an Army Air Corps B-25, a twin-engine bomber, crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building in dense fog.

    This is truly horrific - don't want to spook anyone, but if you're in a major financial city - take a holiday today. These guys may not stop at the US.

    New Information: Second tower of World Trade Center just collapsed.

    Panic in New York.

    40000 people work at the World Trade Center. We have no idea how many people are killed or injured sofar.

    New info: when I say second tower, I mean the shorter tower, not the second tower to collapse. Only the one tower has collapsed.

    Believe me, Shin Ma: we are praying for these people. And yes, the tower collapsed...mostly in on itself, think. It didn't fall straight over "long-ways" or anything.

    Dunno what's up with The White House...I think it's being evacuated as a precaution...same as The Sears Tower.

    Some are saying the Pentagon was hit by a helicopter bomb...but it was hit one way or another. I hope this is the end of it...but I have to worry about another hit.

    Yes, it Pentagon could have been bombed by helicopter. The reports on the TV are quite shocking and I'm having trouble keeping up.

    Confirmed that a plane crashed near or into the Pentagon.

    I can't keep up with this thread! .. All of the airplanes in the air have been ordered to land at the nearest airport.

    Australia's Prime Minister is sitting in New York, and he just heard some more explosions nearby. We don't know where from.
