The Only Existing Footage Of 1st Plane Hitting World Trade Center

Exactly 17 years ago yesterday, on 11 September 2001, the world as we knew it changed forever.

Two planes were hijacked and crashed into the World Trade Centre towers in Manhattan, New York.

Many of us will remember where they were when they heard the news - leaving work, school or college, maybe - and you will probably remember watching the news when you got home and seeing reports of the second plane hitting the World Trade Centre tower.

But what not many people had seen was the first plane hitting the building - of which there is only one piece of video footage.

The video seems to be from 'camera practice' within the fire service. You can hear on the voice over: "Every time the battalion goes, I go, you know I just need some practice, I shoot and I don't stop."

Then the workers hear a plane coming over, and the footage shows the staff looking towards the sky, shocked by the proximity of the sound above.

That was the moment United Airlines Flight 11, a Boeing 767 with 92 people aboard, en route to Los Angeles, hit floors 93 to 99 of the North Tower, killing everyone on board and hundreds within the building.
