    For those who say it wasn’t planes. Woman on the phone with Bryant Gumbel tells him that another plane hit the building as she watched from her apartment window.

      Then there is the story of one of the survivors who actually SAW the plane coming (he was in the second tower, I think).

        A friend who worked in the main library told me she saw the second one fly in & hit the tower as she was riding the train in. Pieces of the planes were filmed on the ground after the collisions.

      That’s ridiculous. Of course there were planes. You can clearly seem both of them in the videos. People can be so stupid.

          I’m sitting (17 years later) exactly where I was that morning, 1/2 mile from the Hudson River directly across from what used to be the WTC. I rarely ever get involved in conversations regarding the attack anymore simply because having watched it happen in front of me it’s difficult to accept the jibberish so many are eager to spout. I buried 12 good friends and over a dozen or so “acquaintances” so it can be a touchy subject. Suffice to say…..I watched as two planes struck those buildings, the first flew straight down the island at rooftop level (one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen) the second plane approached from the southwest coming up the harbor and as soon as I saw it’s proximity to the Statue of Liberty I knew. In fact the second plane damn near missed the tower, he banked that plane so hard left it warped the air frame so much the cargo doors opened.

          Things that will remain impossible to forget;
          The sunlight breaking through the smoke and seeing blue sky where the South Tower used to be.
          The fully armed fighter jet climbing straight up through the smoke,14 miles from my home.
          The papers in the sky over the harbor,…..it looked like glitter.
          The smoke, for weeks the smoke climbed into the sky, visible from my home.
          The ring of lights (also visible from my home) where they worked 24/7 to identify the remains.
          The pictures on automobiles of those looking for their loved ones, far more than you can imagine.

          I could go on but ……..Thank you for listening.

            Thank you, Gary, for sharing your memories. Memories such as yours are so important, especially for those born in the last seventeen years. Would that memories as yours would be included in a book, lest we forget.
            May you be blessed with peace to comfort you in your memories.

      If they were not planes, for what reason were all those humongous planes grounded, that we saw landing, plane after plane after plane, at CAK, and we having to take care of all those passengers?
      There are many stories, outside of NYC, D.C., and PA, that make no sense, were they not planes. Gee wiz.
