It’s now been a dozen years since hijackers commandeered four commercial airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the countryside of Pennsylvania.

Those terrible events have not been repeated, and their memory may be fading somewhat, even those of us who were traveling or about to do so on that fateful day.

To reflect upon that time of evil and how it has affected our lives as travelers, take time to read these stories which Tales Told From The Road ran on the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

This photo of Lower Manhattan was taken by American astronaut Frank Culbertson aboard the International Space Station after the World Trade Center collapsed on 9/11.

Twin Towers From Space

Culbertson also shot this video released by NASA in 2011 and posted on YouTube.

Time magazine photographer Patrick Witty captured this shot of New Yorkers watching as the South Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed. He’s asking those who can identify people in the photo to contact him.


The World Trade Center and its twin towers were destroyed on 9/11. This time lapse video shows reconstruction of the WTC from October 2004 to September 2013.

Out of The Clear Blue Sky, a documentary film about Cantor Fitzgerald and its CEO Howard Lutnick, whose firm lost 658 employees in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, opened in New York last week and will be given a special screening today in select theaters across this U.S. Here’s the film’s official trailer.

Here’s a brief review of the film published by The New York Times.
