    On September 11, 2001, four U.S. planes hijacked by terrorists crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people in a matter of hours. An inferno erupted when two jetliners crashed into the Trade Center's twin towers and caused the buildings to collapse, imperiling up to 40,000 people who worked there. A short time later, another plane crashed into the Pentagon in Washington where up to 800 people remain Tuesday night. Although officials said the attacks appeared to have been well planned and executed, a passenger on the plane that hit the Pentagon said in cell phone call to her husband that the terrorists were armed with knives and box cutters. Attorney General John Ashcroft in his briefing to members of Congress said the hijackers were working in groups of three to five members. American Airlines Flight 11, carrying 81 passengers and 11 crew members en route from Boston to Los Angeles, slammed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in Manhattan shortly before 9 a.m. About 15 minutes later, United Airlines Flight 175, also en route from Boston to Los Angeles, with 56 passengers and nine crew members aboard, crashed into the south tower. The building exploded into flames and collapsed. Another building, 7 World Trade Center, collapsed hours later. It had been burning since shortly after the planes stuck the Twin Towers. Other nearby buildings are ablaze in the area. A Boeing 757 jet plowed into the Pentagon at 9:45 a.m. Witnesses said the plane hit what is known as the "Army Corridor." FBI sources said the aircraft was an American Airlines flight hijacked after taking off from Washington Dulles International Airport bound for Los Angeles. A fourth aircraft, United Airlines Flight 93 from Newark, New Jersey, headed for San Francisco, crashed in a wooded area near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Police said there were no survivors. There were 38 passengers, five flight attendants and two pilots. There are no remains, no survivors.
