WARNING: Distressing content

Twenty years has passed since 2997 people lost their lives after four passenger flights – American Airlines Flight 11, United Airlines Flight 175, American Airlines Flight 77 and United Airlines Flight 93 – were hijacked and crashed by terrorists linked to al-Qaeda.

New Yorkers were starting their work day as hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Centre at 8.46am, as Australians watched the real life horror unfold on late night news bulletins.

After initial confusion, it became clear the first crash was no accident as 17 minutes later United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Centre, followed by United Airlines Flight 93 hitting the Pentagon at 9.37am and fourth flight United Airlines Flight 93 crashing at 10.03am in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Footage and photos captured on September 11, 2001 were, and remain, difficult to view – but it is a day no one will forget.
