Five major events occurred during the course of 1 hour and 45 minutes, four planes hijacked and two towers crashing to the ground at a speed of 200 mph killing 2996 lives along with severely injuring more than 10,000. The first plane crashed into the North tower of the Twin towers a.k.a the World Trade Center at 8:45am (9/11 Attacks). No one could understand what was happening therefore it was thought upon as a freak accident. This crash and the second crash combined killed 2763 including the passengers on the planes, the terrorists as well as all the people in the towers. The second plane crashed into the South tower approximately 18 minutes leading after the first crash, at 9:03am. Now America knew they were under attack. The third plane, which held 64 passengers, crashed into the Pentagon Military Headquarters just outside of Washington D.C. at 9:45am. 125 military personnel and civilians died in the Pentagon along with the 64 passengers and hijackers on the plane totalling to 189 deaths. Striking down to the ground at over 200 mph, the South tower officially collapses at 10:00am. Now, everyone is talking, news reports, newspapers, socially, everyone knows. A fourth flight – which had been delayed 40 minutes gave all the passengers plenty of time to dial home in case anything were to happen. Thomas Burnett Jr. – a passenger – was heard talking to his wife through his phone, “I know we’re all going to die. There’s three of us that are going to do something about it. I love you, honey.” At 8:42am the fourth plane took off with the hijackers aboard. A group of three passengers had teamed up to fight the hijackers with a fire extinguisher, minutes before they had starting fighting a team member named Todd Beamer was heard saying, “Are you guys ready? Let’s roll.” The fight was successful for the passengers but unfortunately crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:10am. Nobody knows for sure where the plane was headed to with the hijackers but possible location would be: White house, U.S. Capitol, Camp David presidential retreat, or one of several nuclear power plants along the eastern seaboard. Instead of killing hundreds, about 44 passengers and hijackers had died on plane number four. At 10:30 the North tower collapses (9/11 Attacks).
