Remembering 11/09/2001…

Whatever your take on the political implications of the attacks on the twin towers, it surely was an unforgettable moment in modern human history. In my case, a colleague left Logan airport for London about ten minutes after the one which hit the twin towers. He was in the air for most of the afternoon before we eliminated any possibility of him being on the ‘wrong plane’. It was only when he touched down in Cardiff about 5.30 (Heathrow was closed), that he and his fellow passengers knew what had happened. I heard later that a cousin had witnessed the falling towers from a traffic jam on the other side of the Hudson. Let us hear your memories of the day (just memories, not opinion), below:
