Extracts from this document...



On Tuesday 11th September 2001, one of America most memorable and explosive attacks occurred. Two aeroplanes were hijacked and crashed into New York’s world trade centre, one of the most influential and important buildings in the world.  In less than ten minutes on the other side of America, Washington’s pentagon was hit by an additional plane. The world watched in silence, as live broadcasts showed fire fighters dragging survivors and dead bodies out of the collapsed rubble. America was in shock and horrified on this unexpected and outrageous attack. America hadn’t experienced anything this severe since the Japanese attack on pearl harbour.  

My involvement in this disastrous incident was by accident and if it weren’t for a phone call I would never have been caught up.  I am agent Gully working for the federal bureau of investigating and was sent to Washington to meet with the justice department.  I went to the airport early to catch the next flight, but my plan didn’t work, as already the flights to Washington were full.  A few seconds

I decided to take a chance and try and shoot the two remaining Muslims. I pointed my gun and pulled the trigger steadily it hit the man holding the knife, the pilots neck was cut and he dead instantly.

  The travellers who were still alive let out cries and weeps. I glanced behind the wall to see the final Arab grabbing a parachute and leaping out of the plane. I jumped up and ran over to the controls they were unmoveable, it was inescapable we were headed to our gory deaths.

Lying under the pilots sit was another parachute I obtained it and ran to the exit door, I put it on and jumped out. Even if I couldn’t stop the plane crashing maybe I could catch someone who was responsible.

I landed in New York In the ally behind the Bloomindales I then understood where the plane was going. I looked up and saw the hijacked passenger jet, American Airlines Flight 11, crashing into the north tower of the World Trade Centre, tearing a gaping hole in the building and setting it afire.
