Bruce Antelman, president of Information Express, a Palo Alto document delivery company with offices in New York, saw the first airplane crash into the World Trade Center from his bedroom window on the 11th floor of a nearby apartment building.
"It very smoothly arched right into it and hit it solidly in the center, at the top of the building, Antelman said. "It was so obvious it was deliberate. That was the freakiest part, watching it hit.

From a window on the 61st floor in the north tower, Ezra Aviles had seen everything. He knew it was no bomb. His window faced north, and he saw the plane tearing through the skies, heading straight for the tower. It had crashed into the building over his head-how far, he was not sure. In fact, its lower wing cut the ceiling of the 93rd floor, and its right wing had ripped across the 98th floor, at the very moment that Patricia Massari was speaking to her husband about her home pregnancy test.
Aviles worked for the Port Authority. He dialed five numbers, leaving identical messages, describing what he saw, and telling everyone up the chain of command to begin the evacuation. He called one colleague, John Paczkowski, but reached his voice mail. "It seems to be an American Airlines jetliner came in from the northern direction, toward-from the Empire State Building, toward us," Aviles said. He ticked through a list of notifications-he had called the police and the public affairs office, and had beeped the chief operating officer for the agency. "Smoke is beginning to come, so I think I'm gonna start bailing outta here, man.... Don't come near the building if you're outside. Pieces are coming down, man. Bye." ...

Hallelujah and pass the collection plate, so we can keep bringing you the multiple truths, the whole multiple truths and nothing but all the multiple truths, all day, every day, even if they are absurd at face value and/or completely mutually exclusive, because with the Great, All-powerful and decidedly evil TPTB, anything is possible and everything can be made to happen. Sure this is a religion that brings nothing but hopelessness to the already pretty hopeless and cluelessness to those who don't need much help there either, but if it keeps them from building and blowing up meth labs as a hobby, it's one we can live with.

I saw the first plane come buzzing in down lower Manhattan, flying incredibly low. The noise was what I imagine an old buzz bomb sounded like. It was a big jet, wobbling, flying unsteadily and very fast. Being a New Yorker, I almost shrugged it off, but two women on the street shrieked "oh my god, it's going to crash." I stopped cold. I counted the seconds, maybe five, before I heard a thud. I couldn't immediately see that it had hit the world trade center. In a few minutes, though, the smoke rose up, glittering with thousands of bits of tile or dust or something, clearly coming from right near the world trade center. And then I started crying.

New Yorker David Blackford, walking to his office, heard the roar of the plane and looked up. "I saw this plane screaming overhead," he told The New York Times. "I thought it was too low. I thought it wouldn't clear the tower." And then he saw the plane smash into the New York landmark. The ground shook, and "you could see the concussion move up the building," said Blackford.

I was coming up Allen, which turns into First. When I was crossing Delancey Street, I saw a jet in front of me, which was the first jet. He was pretty low. He was probably about 30 stories. Now I'm heading north and crossing Delancey Street on Allen and I see the jet make a move toward the Trade Center. It made a southwesterly turn from that point.. I proceeded up First Avenue, left on 14th, parked in front of the firehouse. Fireman Lynn was there. He said they were out on a box, they wouldn't let him on because they thought they had a good job, and right then he told me a plane just crashed into the Trade Center. It was the same exact plane I just saw.

On the morning of September 11th we were operating a box up on Church Street Near Canal. There was an odor of gas in the area. While we were out operating, we heard the first plane coming in. I turned around and I watched the plane crash into the north tower.

As we were driving over the 59th Street bridge, just looking out the window, we saw a plane hit the World Trade
Center, what we thought was a plane... you could see the flames and the smoke starting and they're like, wow, it must have been one of the little planes. I said, no, it looked like a jet.

Hey, These people were there, you have youtube, so no doubt in twooferville youtube beats eyewitnesses.
Clyde Ebanks, 36, an Aon insurance executive based in Dallas, was in a meeting in a northwest-corner conference room on the 103rd floor. Sitting with his back to the window, he watched horror spread across his colleagues' faces and turned around to see the tip of the wing of a jet disappear into the north tower. Immediately, his boss, Chris Gardner, a top executive with the company's global risk services unit, ordered everyone to leave.
"I started packing my briefcase with my laptop and my files and stuff, and he stood there. He kept yelling at me. I was the last one to leave the room. He wouldn't leave until I left," Ebanks says.

On the morning of September 11th about 8:45, I was relieved, and a few of us were standing in front of quarters when we noticed a plane came directly over the firehouse maybe around 8:45, somewhere around that time. One of the guys mentioned that the plane looked like it was really low. Before we could really think of what he said, the next thing we heard an explosion. We saw the smoke.

"It was so loud," said Colin Heywood, 36, a British designer who lives in a loft with a view of the Twin Towers. "I was in my bedroom making a telephone call and I saw it tilt and head towards the building. As it hit, its wings seemed as wide as the tower. It disappeared into the building, as if it was swallowed inside." That was 8.45am.

The hundreds upon hundreds of not made for TV videos made of whatever you believe the Great All-Powerful and decidedly evil TPTB actually did, but now all having been successfully and miraculously photoshopped into planes, would still provide proof of many, many hundreds if not thousands of witnesses to what they saw (missile, drone, remote controlled plane, death ray, nuclear strike, whatever or all of the above) but we aren't really seeing. Or are all those people in the foreground gasping in horror photoshopped in too and nobody in the NYC area actually saw anything and they all turned around and closed their eyes when the second whatever happened?

11-SEP-01 8:47 Stacy Horn A PLANE JUST CRASHED INTO THE WORLD TRADE CENTER.
11-SEP-01 8:49 Stacy Horn Oh god. I'm shaking. A plane just went by my window, it was flying WAY too low, and I was thinking, "How ironic," I wrote about this in my book, and it crashed.
Oh God, people are dead now. Oh god.
11-SEP-01 8:50 Cathy Where did you hear? I have the Today show on. No bulletin.
11-SEP-01 8:51 Stacy Horn I SAW IT. It just happened, too soon for radio and TV.
11-SEP-01 8:51 Cathy There's the bulletin!!! Oh God!
11-SEP-01 8:51 Stacy Horn I'm freaking out. I called 911 and it was busy.
11-SEP-01 8:55 Stacy Horn I didn't see the hit, I saw the plane go by (TOO LOW) and heard the crash which was AWFUL. Then I stood up and saw the big GAPING hole (I can see the World Trade from where I am.)

POLICE OFFICER VICTOR LAGUER
KING: The Governor of New York, George Pataki. Speaking of heroes, we are now joined by officer Victor Laguer. Officer Laguer a member of the New York City police department for 11 years. He and his long-time partner, James Leahy, were on the scene one minute after the first tower was hit. His partner is missing. Is that your regular beat, so to speak, Officer Laguer?
VICTOR LAGUER, NEW YORK CITY POLICE OFFICER: Yes, Officer Leahy is my regular partner.
KING: And is that area of New York City where you regularly serve?
LAGUER: No. We serve Greenwich Village. We serve the 6th Precinct.
KING: What were you doing so close to the building?
LAGUER: We were on a routine patrol on 7th Avenue and Grove Street when we saw the plane go overhead. And my partner mentioned to me that this plane looked awful low. So we proceeded down 7th Avenue and we saw the plane strike the building.
KING: What went through your mind?
LAGUER: We were in awe. We were terrified. We couldn't believe what we saw. It almost looked like a show. And all my partner kept on telling me is "Let's go, let's go, let's go. Let's get down there as fast as we can."
KING: Did you think accident or was it obviously deliberate?
LAGUER: We thought accident. It was a big plane. We couldn't conceive of it just purposely going in to the Twin Towers. Our only hope was to get there as soon as possible to save people.

On tues., 9/11/01, at approximately 0846 hours, P.O. J. Camera and myself were standing on the North East corner of Jersey Ave. & 12th St., facing the World Trade Center. We observed an aircraft, flying south, slam into the top of the north tower.

Andrew Lenney, 37 years old, a financial analyst for the New York City Council, was walking to work a few blocks from the trade center when, he said, "I saw the plane out of the corner of my eye. You're accustomed to a plane taking up a certain amount of space in the sky. This plane was huge. I just froze and watched the plane.
"It was coming down the Hudson. It was banking toward me. I saw the tops of both wings," he said. "It was turning to make sure it hit the intended target. It plowed in about 20 stories down dead center into the north face of the building. I thought it was a movie," Mr. Lenney said. "I couldn't believe it. It was such a perfect pyrotechnic display. It was symmetrical."

I was in a taxi, heading down Manhattanís West Side Highway for a conference at the World Trade Center when the first airliner flew over us and crashed into the North Tower. It was 8:50 a.m.
Traffic came to an immediate halt. I jumped from the cab, climbed the fence and ran three blocks to the trade center as it began falling apart. I interviewed witnesses, including two financial industry workers riding their bikes to work.
"It was like a mirage," said Mark Lewis, a systems analyst at Citigroup Inc.ís Salomon Smith Barney unit. "I looked up and saw (the plane) melting into the building."
Just then we heard a tremendous noise, looked up and saw another large passenger plane slam into the South Tower, 50 or 60 stories up. Glass and debris rained down as we ran into a nearby building.
