On the morning of September 11, 2001 my boss called me on my home phone yelling turn on the news.
I clicked on the TV and found the news clip of the second plane hitting the tower being replayed As the story developed my boss and I watched the same broadcast and attempted to analyze what we were seeing.
1) We both agreed as the towers fell one by one that they had been demolished.
2) The footage of the Pennsylvania crash site appeared to show no crater and the story was claiming that the plane nosed dived into the ground. Where's the hole in ground the emergency responders were walking in a debris field of small chunks.
3) After being told that the State department had been attacked sometime later we were then shown images of the Pentagon and told it had been hit by yet another hijacked plane. We both agreed something was missing and it was the plane boss.
After hanging up the phone I watched the story replay and morph all day.
After my boss had called me I had shoved a VHS cassette into my recorder and hit the record button. I even went out and bought a 3 pack of VHS tapes so i could keep it going.
I have never watched all of what I have recorded that day and still have the tapes and a VHS player so hoping to edit up some of the clips from those tapes this winter.
Remembering the innocent people and heroes who lost their lives on that day.-RP
