10 years ago today, Civil Aviation was used as a terrorizing weapon - changing many of our lives in ways that are incommunicable.


It is important we pay tribute to those lost, and honor their memories. I will never forget reading this forum as the events unfolded.

Be sure to thank your local first response teams regardless of nationality. Whether it's organizing a barbecue for paramedics, firefighters, police officers, or simply offering a handshake, be sure to let this day bring out the best in all of us.

Please sign your respects

Exactly what he said.

Terrible day for not only America but for the world. The worst day in Aviation History IMO, never had civil aircraft been used to cause so much death and destruction. Hopefully it will never happen again. Cant believe it has been 10 years.

It saddens me that people can cause so much destruction and violence with airplanes. From the time I was three, until 9/11/01, I wanted to be a pilot. Watching, as a youngster, airplanes kill thousands on people on live tv is something I will, and must not, ever forget. Not unntil I was 17 did that spark re-kindle and I decided I wanted to be a pilot.

Today marks the second time in the past two years I will be flying on 9/11. I have a cross-country into MSP Bravo Airspace in 12 hours. Many of the pilots sharing the skies with me later today lost colleagues and friends that day, both pilots and flight crew, even friends and family in the towers or elsewhere.

But the terrorists have not stopped what I love to do, and I fly today as a gesture to them: Your acts of terror will not end my dreams. I am a strong and proud American. Your acts of terror have failed to cripple the spirit and resolve of the American people.

I urge my countrymen, and all around the world, to stand together on this day.

God Bless America.



So we beat on against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

It's hard to imagine that 10 years have already passed since the day which changed the world.

Quoting FoxTwo (Thread starter):

I can only agree.


While the horrors were happening, I was heading to LAX on AF068. The experiences on that day will stay in my memory forever. Here's the report:

I have spent much of the last week watching documentaries on the events of September 11th. What I just recently realized was how that day altered the course of my life and I guess I had never really thought about it in that way. I was a flight attendant for NW at the time and while I knew how 9/11 impacted me in the most immediate sense, I guess I didnt realize that it would be responsible for many major life decisions in the 10 years that would follow.

While September 11th touched my life in some very negative ways, I count myself lucky that I know nobody personally that was impacted by the loss of a family member, friend or aquaintance. To all of those who find themselves thnking about somebody close who was lost on that morning, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Remember, flags at half staff today, all day.

Never forgotten, and forever grateful.

Thanks to all the kind service-men who went above-and-beyond to ensure the public's safety.

I was only 7-years old when it happened, but I still remember walking down the stairs that morning to see my mom, distraught. The rest of the day is a blur.. but the emotions I felt, and received from my parents' anguish, will never be forgotten. Nor will the strange feeling of returning to school on 9/12.

Seeing UA 175 is particularly gut-wrenching for me. Lisa A. Frost was my old friend's relative, she lived in RSM, California.. and died on that flight.

It's truly amazing that it's been 10 years, as a person I've changed and matured--but the feeling of loss and confusion still remains the same.

Also, many thanks to those nations that showed (and still do) a great deal of love to the USA on 9/11/01. As an American that loves to travel, it means a lot to me that other nations and people love us as we do them.

This is the particular airplane that was first to crash into the World Trade Center at 8.35A EST on September 11, 2001. It was also the first of the four airplanes to be attacked by terrorists. N334AA, a Boeing 767 of American Airlines, was scheduled to fly BOS-LAX as flight AA 11 on the morning of that day.

May all passengers, crews and those who perished on the ground rest in peace for ever.

I was living in Sydney at the time and was awakened in the middle of the night by a neighbor who had been called by relatives in the US. I will never forget that long night as I watched in horror as the events unfolded in New York.

Nor will I forget the walk to work the next morning with all the Australian flags at half staff and American flags draped from the windows of many buildings.

Yes, many things changed about how we travel, many of them for the worst, but the fact that I am writing this from Budapest is perhaps the best evidence that the terrorists did in fact not win. We can still travel, albeit we grumble more, but we can still go. And what the terrorists sought was to stop the spread of freedom and few places on earth have given more to the struggle for freedom than this beautiful city did in 1956.

I am reminded of the words of Thomas Paine, writing during the American revolution, when he said "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value."

God bless America, God bless Australia, God bless Hungary, and God bless all those who struggle for freedom is not yet at an end.

Let us continue to fly, with all the hassles and disturbances, and fly for evermore.

Out of curiosity, are any executives from UAL or AMR going to be attending any of the events today?

This day, so many heros, so many stories, but the one that touched me the most were the actions of 40 people on United Flight 93 who were the first warriors in the War on Terror. They fought back, knowing that they would not die in vein.

My God Bless them, and may God Bless America. Their sacrifice will always be remembered.

Not sure about executives but members of flight crews of both American and United were at all three memorial services.

To all my fellow plane geeks around the world, please remember every time you fly for fun or go spotting, you're giving a F-you to those who tried to use our passion for terror.
