Who-Osama Bin Laden,Khalid Sheikh Mohammed,and Mohammed Atef

What-On the morning of September 11,2001 19 terrorists from al-Qaeda,hijacked four commercial airplanes deliberately crashing two of the

planes into the upper floors of the North and South towers of the World Trade Center

complex and a third plane into the Pentagon in Arlington, Va.

When-On September 11,2001

Where-New York City,Arlington,Virginia,and Shanksville,Pennsylvania.

Why-Because the terrorists did not have the capacity to destroy the U.S. military so they set their sights on symbolic targets instead.And also I think that the people that attacked the World Trade Centers was not done on purpose .

How-They hijacked four airplanes in mid-flight.And terrorists flew two of the planes into two skyscrapers at the World Trade Center in New York City.The impact caused the buildings to catch fire and collapse to the ground.Another plane destroyed part of the Pentagon (the U.S. military headquarters) in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania near the Indian Lake and it landed in a field.

Extra Notes-The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks launched by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda upon the United States in New York City and the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed almost 3,000 people and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage.On November 18, 2006, construction of One World Trade Center began at the World Trade Center site.As of September 2014, the new tower had topped out and underwent internal furnishing and will officially open when the installation of podium glass and interior construction is completed,estimated in late 2014.Of the 2,977 people killed in the September 11 attacks,441 of them were emergency workers in New York City who responded to the World Trade Center.This included:341 firefighters and 2 paramedics from the New York City Fire Department.And also 37 police officers from the Port Authority of New York City and New Jersey Police Department and also 23 police officers from the New York Police Department and 8 Emergency Medical Technicians and paramedics from private hospital units dispatched through the 911 system,as well as commercial ambulance groups brought in under “Mutual Aid” for this disaster emergency medical services.And also 3 New York State Court Officers.Their were 75 firehouses in which at least one member was killed and the FDNY also lost it’s department chief,first deputy commissioner,and one of it’s marshals,one of it’s chaplains as well as other administrative or specialty personnel.And to conclude the notes for my research one fire patrolman was killed in the collapse of the South Tower.

At 8:46 AM flight 11 crashes into the WTC North Tower.And from 8:46 to 10:29 at least 100 people (some accounts say as many as 250),primarily in the North Tower,trapped by fire and the smoke in the upper floors,jump to their deaths.

At 9:03 AM Flight 175 crashes into the WTC South Tower.And at 9:59 AM the South Tower of the WTC collapses.And at 10:28 AM the World Trade Center North Tower collapse.The North Tower,1 WTC,stood for 102 minutes 5 seconds after impact.The South Tower,2 WTC,collapsed about 56 minutes later.

Each of the WTC Towers had 110 stories.And Of the 110 stories, eight were set aside for technical services (mechanical floors), in four two-floor areas evenly spread up the building. All the remaining floors were free for open-plan offices. Each tower had 3.8 million square feet and also 350,000 feet of available office space.

Remember all of the heroes that tried to save the people and they died themselves and I am just glad that they built another building like the 9/11 tower.
