Thursday, September 11, 2014 – Patriot’s Day

Tuesday, September 11, 2001 at 8:46:30 AM – American Airlines Flight 11 hits the North Tower of the Twin Towers. or Tower One of The World Trade Center.

The inscription at the bottom of the picture reads: “At the time of their completion in 1973 the “Twin Towers” were the tallest buildings in the world. The North Tower, World Trade Center One, was 1,368 feet tall. The South Tower, World Trade Center Two, was 1,362 feet tall. The Twin Towers were destroyed in the terrorists’ attacks on September 11, 2001.”

I took this photograph on July 22, 1986. The last of the five World Trade Center Buildings was completed that year.
