Patriot Day 2022 USA
Citizens of 78 countries died in the attacks.
The largest man-made waterfalls in the United States with two 1-acre pools comprise the footprints of the Twin Towers, symbolizing the loss of life and the physical void left by the attacks. The waterfalls are intended to mute the sounds of the city, making the site a contemplative sanctuary. The waterfalls are on the grounds of the 9/11 memorial.
The “Towers of Light” from East River … it takes 88 separate lights to create the outline of each tower. Each light is 7000 watts. The Towers of Light extend four miles high and can be seen from space.
This is the twenty‑first observance of the attacks and this year we pay our respects on Sunday, September 11, 2022
On September 11, 2001, at 8:45 a.m. on a clear Tuesday morning, a American Airlines Flight 11 (a Boeing 767 loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel) crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.
Eighteen minutes after the first plane hit, a second Boeing 767—United Airlines Flight 175—appeared out of the sky, turned sharply toward the World Trade Center and sliced into the south tower near the 60th floor.
American Airlines Flight 77 circled over downtown Washington, D.C., before crashing into the west side of the Pentagon military headquarters at 9:45 a.m.
United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in an open field next to a wooded area in Stonycreek Township, Somerset County, Pennsylvania at 10:03:11 am in September 11, 2001. The nearest town is Shanksville, PA.
There were forty-four people on board: 2 pilots, 5 flight attendants, 33 passengers and 4 hijackers; al-Qaeda terrorists. There were 6 passengers and 4 hijackers in first class, and 27 passengers in coach.
Flight 93, a domestic scheduled passenger flight, took off from Newark International Airport in Newark, New Jersey (later re-named Liberty International Airport). The flight left from Terminal A, Gate 17. The scheduled departure time from the gate was 8:00 am. Flight 93 was scheduled to land at San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco, California at 11:14 am, Pacific Time.
The thirty-seven passengers (including the four terrorists) represented a load factor of 20% of the plane’s capacity of 182. Some authorities believe that those planning the terrorist attacks purposely chose flights to hijack which were commonly low in passenger numbers so they would face less resistance when trying to take over the plane. The other planes hijacked on September 11, 2001 were similarly low in passengers.
Flight 93 struck the ground at a 40-degree angle almost upside down, hitting right wing and nose first, at a speed of between 563-580 miles per hour. It was carrying approximately 5,500 gallons of Jet A fuel at impact.
Had the plane maintained its speed and flight path, rather than crashing in Stonycreek Township, it would have arrived in Washington D.C. in 18-20 minutes. The nation’s capital is about 125 air miles from the crash site.
Flight 93 Memorial is located at 6424 Lincoln Highway, Stoystown, PA
