Well, I am not really shocked that there is no topic or something about this, but a special page or a topic started by Airliners.net itself, would be correct.
I also remember all people that died in that awfull attack. People jumping out of the WTC. The collapsing of the towers, but also the empty airpsace above the US that day.
I am listening to Dutch radio at the moment (17:00 hrs CET) and hear replay's of radioshows that day. Very scarry, because I was listening to the same shows just a year ago and after that I turned on CNN. At that moment, I saw the tragedy. But I had to see it with my own eyes. The only thing I heard on the radio, was a screaming and crying Dutch man, who worked in NY near the WTC and was doing a quick interview with the radiostation.
I thing all feelings flow away. If you should check 9/11 last year, you should see that there were over 50 topics about that day. And now, indeed, only one topic.
I respect all the people who started again, and rebuilt the Pentagon, the area around Shanksville and off course New York.
I have never been in NY, I always wanted to, but now I have seen that NOTHING can stop that city: In the future, I will definetely come to that city. PROMISED!!!

I agree with you, Dr. Detroit.
At the very least, there should be a tribute on this site because this was the worst commercial airliner tragedy in history. People seem to forget that on this forum and atrribute everything to silly politics. Lets face the facts: One year ago today, four COMMERCIAL AIRLINERS were hijacked and crashed into buildings and on the ground killing thousands of people. Say what you want about the U.S. and it's policy, but the unique nature of this event -- an event that shares very common ground with the nature of this website -- should be recognized here.

Right on Dr DTW
Here's a quote I found in today's paper
"Patriotism is expressed by flying the flag, but it is more. Patriotism means we share a single country. In all our diversity, each of us has a bond with every other American. Patriotism is proven in our concern for others, a willingness to sacrifice for people we may never have met or seen. Patriotism is our obligation to those who have gone before us, to those who will follow us, and to those who have died for us."

Ultimately, all airline people are in the same business, regardless of the carrier you work for.
Hard to believe it's been a year.
Ironic that a bunch who want to go back to the middle ages used these wonderful machines for their evil purposes, not to mention murdering crew to take the aircraft over.

Thank your Dr.DTW
Last year to this day, will be lived infamy. On 9-11 it was a clear innoncent day. Today a year later in New York, it was extremely windy. The wind was here to acknowldge that we have acknowldged what has happened, our hatred of it, and our uniting. But it was here to pick it all up, and move with as we should move on. But it did not pick it up all. It left some that it wanted us to keep, the rest went gone with the wind.
