911 powerpoint bretthuff

  1. 1. By. Brett Huff
  2. 2.  About one hour before the attacks of Sept 11, 2001, it was a beautiful day. Sky's blue, not a cloud in the sky.
  3. 3.  American Airlines 11 Left Boston's Logan Airport at 7:59 a.m. enroute to Los Angeles with a crew of 11 and 76 passengers, not including five hijackers. The hijackers flew the plane into the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m.
  4. 4.  Left Logan Airport at 8:14 a.m. enroute to Los Angeles with a crew of nine and 51 passengers, not including five hijackers. The hijackers flew the plane into the South Tower of the World Trade Center at 9:03 a.m.
  5. 5.    “God bless every soul that we lost. God bless the families who have to endure that loss, and God guide us to our reunion in heaven, and God bless the United States of America.” Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, speaking at the memorial service. “So many names, there is barely room on the walls of the heart.” Former Poet Laureate Billy Collins, “The Names,” read by former New York Gov. George Pataki at the service “My son firefighter Leon Smith Jr., who was the sunshine of my life. He gave his life so that others could live. I love you, I miss you and we’ll meet again soon.” Irene Smith, whose son was a member of the Fire Department of New York Ladder Co. 118, speaking at the memorial service in New York
  6. 6.  Left Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia at 8:20 a.m. enroute to Los Angeles with a crew of six and 53 passengers, not including five hijackers. The hijackers flew the plane into the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m.
  7. 7.  A fourth flight, United Airlines Flight 93, under the control of four hijackers, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, southeast of Pittsburgh, at 10:03 a.m. after the passengers fought the hijackers. Flight 93's target is believed to have been either the Capitol or the White House. Flight 93's cockpit voice recorder revealed crew and passengers tried to seize control of the plane from the hijackers after learning through phone calls that similarly hijacked planes had been crashed into buildings that morning. Once it became evident to the hijackers that the passengers might regain control of the plane, the hijackers rolled the plane and intentionally crashed it.
  8. 8.     World Trade Center: 2,823 presumed dead (including plane victims) Pentagon: 125 (not including plane victims) Flight 77: 64 people on board Flight 93: 45 people on board
  9. 9.  The United States of America has recovered from the tragedies of nine years ago very well. The security of planes has gone up drastically in the past years and the police can tap phone lines without a warrant.
