© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Significance What was 9/11? On 11 September 2001, thousands of people were going about their daily business in the ‘Twin Towers’ of the World Trade Centre in New York. Suddenly, out of a clear blue sky, an airliner crashed into one of the towers, followed later by a second plane into the other tower. All over the world, viewers watched live coverage as trapped individuals jumped to their deaths from upper floors and as the towers subsequently collapsed.
