That was another bright sunny morning, with nothing but blue skys, and a black column of smoke coming, again, from NYC. I was at work at DFW
, as I was the morning of 9/11.
We were watching the events on the TV
in the Airport Operations Center (AOC
). I called the AA
tower to try to get additional information, they already knew the flight number, airplane type, SOBs, etc. They dispatched the flight. The AA
Tower was in a very sad mood, but none of us knew the cause, then. The thought of another 9/11 was discussed between the AA
Tower and me. I told them I would put an off ramp aircraft parking plan together, if we needed it.
Fortunately we did not.
May all of the 270 rest in peace.
