Remembering Sept. 11: Events Planned in Mass.

Two planes hit the New York Twin Towers, another hit the Pentagon.

Commuters staggered through NY after the horror attacks on September 11, 2001.

People around the country took time Monday to remember the thousands who died in the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

But passengers on a fourth jet - United Airlines Flight 93, which also was apparently also headed to D.C. - learned about the attacks, figured out their plane was part of the plot and fought back against the terrorists, sending the jet crashing into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. 184 people were killed as hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the building.

"I can not believe the sight of Lower Manhattan without the World Trade Center".

Beata Kowalczyk-Wolosz, a Polish architect living and working in NYC, was among the first to document the tragic events of 11 September 2001 in pictures.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump observed a moment of silence at the White House on Monday at the exact moment that a hijacked airplane was slammed into the World Trade Center.

Almost 3,000 people were killed when hijackers flew commercial airplanes into New York's World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The sky over New York City was a strikingly clear blue as people were arriving to work on September 11, 2001.

James Taormina, whose brother Dennis Taormina was killed in the attacks, was seen standing by the 9/11 Memorial North Pool on Tuesday before a ceremony took place there.

The city of NY paid $21,8 billion to restore the infrastructure and some of the buildings.

Altogether thousands of people lost their lives during the attacks and the buildings and infrastructure around the Twin Towers were destroyed.
