The September 11 attacks, often referred to as 9/11,[a] were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the militant Islamic terrorist group al-Qaedaagainst the United States of America on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001.

American Airlines Flight 77, flown from Dulles International Airport, was hijacked over Ohio. At 9:37 am, it crashed into the west side of the Pentagon (the headquarters of the American military) in Arlington County, Virginia, causing a partial collapse of the building’s side. The fourth, and final flight, United Airlines Flight 93, was flown in the direction of Washington, D.C. The plane’s passengers attempted to regain control of the aircraft away from the hijackers and ultimately diverted the flight from its intended target; it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:03 am. Investigators determined that Flight 93’s target was either the White House or the U.S. Capitol.

Students Asia Cottom, 11, Bernard Brown, 11, and Rodney Dickens, 11, along with teachers Hilda Taylor, James Debeuneure, and Sarah Clark were chosen to participate in a trip to study ecology in California beside National Geographic Society researchers.

The attacks resulted in 2,977 fatalities, over 25,000 injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences, in addition to at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.It remains the deadliest terrorist attack in human history and the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 340 and 72 killed,respectively. Numerous memorials have been constructed, including the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City, the Pentagon Memorial in Arlington County, Virginia, the Flight 93 National Memorial at the Pennsylvania crash site, and the Memorial Garden at Leckie Education Campus in Southeast, where they lost a student, a teacher and two parents.

Sonya Ross and Stacy Brown talk with Denise Rolark Barnes on WIN-TV, Friday, September 10, 2021 about their coverage of the events that day.
