9/11 Sunset

Eleven years ago today I learned of the terrorist attacks like most everyone else...on tv. Was scheduled to go to work at 2 but they called and told me not to come in until 6 as we were going to minimal staffing. Showed up and went through three different ID checks before heading to the tower alone. There was a ramp full of exotic planes from the sudden grounding earlier in the day... and not a soul in the air.

 

One of the weirdest experiences of my career. The skies tonight were almost exactly as I remember that evening.
