The 9/11 attacks were carried out by 19 terrorists from Al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda had hijacked a total of four planes. One plane which was hijacked by the Al-Qaeda terrorists deliberately crashed into the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Center complex. This caused the twin towers to burn and ultimately fall to the ground. The third hit the Pentagon and the fourth, Flight 93, crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Another plane, Flight 93, crashed in a field in Shanksville after passengers fought back against three al Qaeda hijackers, preventing the plane from reaching its target.
The terrorist attacks of 9/11 were captured in countless pictures by news photographers, bystanders, first responders, security cameras, FBI agents and others. Even an astronaut on the International Space Station took some. In the aftermath of the planes falling from the sky, America and the world were introduced to an array of personalities.
