2nd Twr Pre-Impact Photo

Wed Sep 12, 2001 5:34 am

Photo of 767 milliseconds before impact.

Do not know where the photo originally comes from (no copyright notice on this link when I got it), but it is on front page at the following website:

...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...

That is an amazing photo and at the same time a very very sad photo.

Looks like a United, not an American.

Both we're 767s that hit the Trade Center.
The 757s crashed at DC and PA.

Hi!

Yes really looks like an UNITED aircraft, but I saw in CNN also a video from a different view and the 767 looked quite long, could it be a 300 version?

I just saw another amature video on CNN showing the second tower from the side when the plane slammed into it..... it looked like the cockpit came out the other side of the building.... horrible horrible footage
