Perspective: 9/11 mystery
On September 11, 2001, 2,996 innocent civilians were killed during one of the deadliest attacks in American history. On 8.45am, a hijacked American passenger Boeing 767 crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Centre in New York City. The aircraft loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel struck near the 80th floor of the 110-story skyscraper.
Just 18-minutes later a second Boeing 767 – United Airlines Flight 175 hit near the 60th floor of the south tower.
