I was at work watching it happen on a little TV in the waiting area

Anybody know if any of the criminal 9/11 planners are still at large?
and a Base public works employee came by and told me about it.
Then when the second plane hit, he realized the first wasn't an accident and freaked out
I called my wife and turned on the TV as I did everyday before work and we were both wondering why the North tower was smoking when the second plane hit.
I tried flying back home next day obviously to no avail. Then I tried on Thursday but my flight was the LAST one cancelled that night. It was me, two pilots and a stewardess at the gate. Airport was closed and they cancelled our flight 10 minutes before departure.
I left Miami at 1:00AM and got home to New York at 9:00 PM. Pretty much drive through meals and pee stops to gas up. I did stop, as everyone did, on the NJTP on a bridge where we had a perfect view of downtown Manhattan and the huge smoke column slowly rising high into the sky. I parked in the middle of the road as everyone did…. Stayed there for about 10 minutes, it seemed like hours.
I was back on an airplane next Monday one one of the first flights to leave Newark. Takeoff was into North winds and the pilot veered slightly East so we could get a view of the site from the air…. It took my breath away. There were 3 passengers on that plane. We didn’t talk at all during the flight…
It’s a °IIIII° thing 😎
it was a messed up time
That was one of the worst days of my life.
It was Tuesday morning. I had returned home late the day before after a week long ocean kayak run in the Northwest. I was the only one out of the group that opted to travel on Monday. I was preparing to head to the office listening to the market news when the commentator announced smoke from World Trade 1. I watched as the second tower was hit. Sat down in shock, realizing what was happening. Drove to the office listening to news on local radio. Companions remained in the Northwest for about a month. I think of that day almost every time I pick up my spyderco clip carry knife I had bought at the very beginning of that trip.

Should I find myself waiting for the world to end Yankee Boy Basin would be very near the top of my list of places to be.
