I can't get any more information than this. Two planes crashed into the World Trade Center, it seems like it happend on puropose. One crashed right after another.

I'll post more information if I can find out anything!

The news is considerably more interesting than it is sad.

Well at least I'm more concerned with people dying than with being the first person to post it!

None of the news websites will load. Seems as if everyone is trying to hit all the major news sites at once, and I think it brought them crashing down (no pun intended). Yahoo's link above, cnn.com, msnbc, foxnews, all of 'em aren't working right now... grrrrrrrrrr

And with most of the Members being American, I think we'll find it more saddening than interesting...

DM, I know, I know.

The passenger plane was a United Airlines 737 or a 767.

I can't get onto any of the news sites either. We have a tv here in the office everyone is watching. Bush just made a statement and is now headed back to Washington.

It looks like mass chaos outside the WTC and there's no number of casualties known yet, of course. It's too soon.

This is horrid.

I've heard some call-ins from people who witnessed it. The first plane crashed into the first tower, kind of on the side. The second plane, the passenger plane went right into the second tower, and it created a massive fireball.

I watched the second plane fly right into the other tower on the news.

This was obviously an attack on us for our support of Israel.

ES, its a little early to start pointing fingers. It was a deliberate terroristic attack, but who knows who it was from, and why.
