Thread title is self-explanatory. Where were you? How did you find out about it?|
I was working in Jersey Airport at the time. We had just finished refuelling a 737 and had gone back to the staff room to enjoy our regular bacon butties. Sitting round the table and watching the news on this shit old CRT tv, everything was interrupted by the news that a plane had flown into the World Trade Center, with live footage. As we watched and listened, we saw the second plane fly in and crash into the second tower.
I don't think any of us said anything. We were too stunned.
The next few hours spent working, greeting new planes landing, we described what we saw. Cabin crew on the planes kept assuming we were making a sick joke. I saw the towers collapsing, and people falling out of the windows (I didn't realise at the time they were desperately throwing themselves out of the towers). I will never forget it.
Weirdest day of my life.
So... where were you on 9/11? When did you first hear about it?
