Many thousands of images were taken of the destruction that befell the US on September 9, 2001. The deadly attacks by Al Qaeda with four hijacked passenger planes saw the total destruction of the World Trade Center, an assault on the Pentagon and the brave deaths of passengers who overpowered terrorists on United Flight 93. These harrowing images stand as a memorial to the 2,977 innocents who died.
