On the morning of September 11, 2001 my boss called me yelling turn on the news.

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

Comment by Central Scrutinizer on Wednesday

2001, I was residing just outside DC, (Gainesville), Had a V-sat install to do at a Gas Station on Columbia Pike & I-395 in Arlington, I was in my '88 Dodge Caravan, on I-395, taking the Columbia Pike exit, listening to H. Stern on DC101, he was babbling about a small plane hitting the trade center tower, and the drunk pilot jokes were rolling, so i assumed he was just on one of his Shpeel's.... And that's when I saw the craziest thing, not that I saw it long, maybe 1.5 seconds in real time... the perfect floating "smoke rings" had me mesmerized, when a bright ass, blinding flash, followed immediately by a  big ass concussion made every Vehicle on that 395 just stop.... and none of the vehicles moved from then on for about 4-5 hours, found myself rapping & later, puffing w/ 4 other people also stranded on I-395, next to the PentaCon.... Top Discussion subject at that moment with my 4 new friends:

What the hell kind of missile was that that just hit the Pentacon??, and followed up by, "Who fired that thing?" and then  "Where the hell did that come from?" Then, "Is this WW3?" ...was still clueless on what was happening yet.... ...and where are all these airplanes coming from and that C130 Helicoptor now???... WTF???

FInally made it home that night to where I heard a talking bobblehead's voice coming from the idiot box, while I was in the shower claiming that a UA commercial plane had hit the PentaCon this morning???...again...WTF?? Obviously weren't at the same PentaCon I was at this morning....sheeeesh

I was 40 miles East of Van Horn,Texas, working on the I-10. All we had were AM FM radios and poor reception. Imagine my surprise when they cracked  the case before the dust settled. The guys from JAG with help from Perry Mason and Barnaby Jones? I foolishly believed most of the Gov story for a time. Then a computer repairman came to my home, fixed my computer and then demolished all my beliefs about 911 on a trip to the darkweb or whatever you call it?

Burbia, Exactly.

Comment by Burbia on Wednesday

That's right. Do you remember a plane flew within restricted air space before 911 and was met with jet fighters almost immediately? 

Comment by Diana on Wednesday

I was watching the news and the first plane hit.  I thought "How terrible".  I could accept one plane having a accident.  The second plane hit and I thought "No Way.  What happened with NORAD?".  Then the "planes" in Pennsylvania and the Pentagon, it kept getting less believable.  Then they announced building 7 went down before it happened.  When they passed the Patriot Act in October, I realized 9/11 was America's Reichstag Fire and the Patriot Act was America's Enabling Act.  Not quite as draconian, but still a loss of liberties.

I woke up at 5:40 am pst, turned on the television and saw the first tower smoking. Events played out on tv as time went on. Eventually every channel but one had live coverage on going.
