Dawn of Terrorism in the U.s., Part 1
This book tells the story of how terrorists struck directly at the heart of America. They used two huge Boeing 767 airplanes loaded with 11,000 gallons of Jet fuel, crashing them into the World Trade Centers, 110 story Twin Towers. The support beams were pushed to the melting point by the 2,000 degree flames Super Heated by the Jet fuel.As the two towers burned, American Airlines Flight 77 had departed Washington D.C.s Dulles International Airport, carrying 58 passengers and a crew of 8, a Boeing 757, crashed into the West side of the Pentagon. Less than an hour later, United Flight 93 with 38 passengers and a crew of 7 aboard crashed into a field in Shanksville, PA. It is believed the passengers, who were aware of what was happening, were trying to regain control of the airplane from the hijackers. Flight 93s target was the White House.Back in New York, the South Tower was the first to surrender to its mortal wounds. It groaned as the support beams buckled outward, unable to support the upper floors. Like dominoes they pan-caked downward one on top of the other causing what appeared to be an implosion, trapping anyone still alive inside. Shortly after the South Tower collapsed, the North Tower came hurdling downward.America wept as the World stood still in Shock and awe. But the spirit of America inspired the World to unite together accepting the challenges and complexities of a long overdue assault on terrorism now and in the future.
