Plane Crashes into World Trade Center
NewYork1 | 9/11/01

Posted on 09/11/2001 5:56:49 AM PDT by hellinahandcart

Just in. I am looking at a picture of the WTC with smoke pouring out of the western tower. Looks like a huge amount of damage. Debris raining down on people in the street.

Picking it up on my satellite receiver from Fox News. Smoke billowing out of top ten floors with flames shooting out. Apparently, a twin engine passenger plane slammed into the building.

Dear Lord, it looks like the plane went right through. Is that even possible without having plane wreckage on the ground below?

The man on the phone right now says he saw the impact and that there was an ENORMOUS fireball, many times bigger than the top of the WTC (which is pretty darned big). And that the plane simply plowed into the north side (the one in the photo) on a left-banking turn.

They are reporting no casuaslties as yet. But it is not possible to assume there are none. I don't see how they can get there to look for casualties just yet

Don't pilots have to submit a flight plan? If so, I wonder where this pilot was intending to go?

If this is terrorists (as seems clear now), we need to find out who is responsible and kill them. Not arrest them. Kill them.

Time for the Arabs to feel the might of the United States. I suggest we take out Medina and Mecca.

That is what I'm hearing too. First explosion was from a passenger aircraft. Second was another large-ish aircraft, witneses say it didnt look like a rescue-type plane. And that it just plowed right in.

Second plane jet liner went between the tow towers, banked right and slammed into the 2nd tower. Unbelievable!

It happened while Fox news was showing live pictures of the first fire; another jet came in from the right of the picture and crashed into the second tower. I didn't believe what I was watching.

I believe we are looking at an intentional act of terrorism. I pray that GW stands up and deliberately, and swiftly crushes these bugs under the heel of the armed forces of The United States of America.

Let them tremble before our rage. Let them know the true meaning of might. Let them know why they fear the night!

Bush should immediately rescind the anti-assassination executive order and order the assassination of every world leader known or suspected to support terrorism. Arafat, Qadaffi, Hussein, whoever's in charge in Iran these days, Kim Jong-Il, Castro; kill them all. They all deserve to die, and this has gone too far. %$#& 'em.

This is totally deliberate. That second one was NOT a helicopter going astray. We need all the airports closed right now and the military in here.

NBC said it was a 737, but who knows. it was BIG.

Dear God, let no one be killed. We need to pray.

Yes. Suicide mission. I just saw the replay of the second impact and the pilot very obviously lowered his trajectory.

Getting report now that the FBI says a plane was hijacked somewhere earlier today. Not much info yet.

"We need all the airports closed right now and the military in here.

I certainly hope that the Air Force has a number of assets in the air as we speak.

unconfirmed--American Airlines is saying one of their planes was hijacked and deliberately crashed into the tower. There's also speculation the commuter plane was hijacked.

Yes, the 2nd plane flew straight between the towers and banked sharply right slamming into the 2nd tower. It hit lower than the first plane.
