While the attention of the world was riveted on the already damaged North Tower of the World Trade Center, it was United Airlines Flight 175 that plowed into the South Tower with a homicidal theatricality its planners must have known would be broadcast everywhere.
At Boston's Logan International Airport, Flight 175 took off with 56 passengers and nine crew onboard the Boeing 767. It left the gate at 7:58 a.m., and its wheels were in the air a few minutes later. Victor Saracini, 50, an experienced pilot who had been a Navy flier, was flying the aircraft.
Flight 175, like each of the planes that were used as weapons on September 11th, included people traveling for many reasons. Ruth McCourt and her four-year-old daughter, Juliana, were heading to Disneyland. There were businessmen and tourists. One passenger, Al Marchand, was an off-duty flight attendant and retired New Mexico police lieutenant. Mark Bavis and Garnet Bailey, two scouts from the Los Angeles Kings hockey team were on their way to the Kings' training camp in El Segundo, California.
The flight was on course heading southwest toward Los Angeles until 8:47 a.m., when, west of the George Washington Bridge over New Jersey, the plane made a sharp left turn. Twelve minutes later, it made another sharp left to settle on a course leading directly into the South Tower.
Peter Hanson, who was traveling on the flight with his wife and 2-year-old daughter, was talking to his parents on the phone from the doomed airplane until the very end. "The plane is going down! Oh my God," were his final words before the phone line went dead. At that same moment, a huge fireball erupted from the South Tower. Flight 175 was gone.

American Airlines Flight 11 to Los Angeles took off on schedule out of the tangle of delays at Logan International Airport in Boston, right on time at 7:59 a.m. on September 11th, 2001.
Captain John Ogonowski was at the controls, a 50-year-old veteran pilot who lived on a farm north of Boston, and was looking forward to a family picnic at the weekend. His co-pilot was Thomas McGuinness, and there were 9 flight attendants and 81 passengers, a seemingly everyday mixture: a television producer, some businessmen, a retired ballet dancer, an actress and photographer, a young man who had made a success in the new technology economy. And several hijackers.
After takeoff, the plane held on course, almost due west, for only 16 minutes. Just past Worcester, Massachusetts, instead of taking a southerly turn, the Boeing 767 swung to the north. It had been taken over.
Flight 11 headed northwest, where the Berkshires, the Taconic Range and the beginning of the Green Mountains mark the spot where the borders of Massachusetts, New York and Vermont intersect. Crossing into New York, the plane flew into the area known as the Albany-Schenectady-Troy triangle, then veered left over Amsterdam and headed due south to New York City. The flight path was straight now, along the Hudson Valley and then right above the broad river itself.
As the hijacked aircraft approached Manhattan, it rapidly descended. From the cockpit, the silvery twin towers of the World Trade Center were straight ahead, rising above the city and twinkling in the sunlight.
In the Windows on the World restaurant on the 107th floor of the North Tower, dozens of people were enjoying a leisurely breakfast and the spectacular view when Flight 11 slammed into the building 20 floors below. It was 8:46 a.m., and the morning of terror was only just beginning.

Abruptly, at 9:59 a.m., an ear-splitting noise shook Lower Manhattan. The South Tower rumbled, seemed to list in one direction and then began to come down, imploding upon itself in a fury of flying concrete.
A plume of smoke reminiscent of an atomic bomb rose upward and then descended to street level and sped uptown. People began running, chased by the smoke. The air rained white ash and plaster dust, coating horrified pedestrians until they looked ghostlike. People held their breath or covered their faces as best they could with cloths or their shirts. For several blocks, everything was black. People found their eyes burned. Many wondered if they were seeing the very face of death.
Ten or so blocks north of the World Trade Center, the smoke had been outrun and it began to dissipate into the air. People stopped, turned and looked downtown. As the air cleared, an unthinkable site presented itself. It was the empty space where a 110-story skyscraper had been just minutes earlier.
People gasped. They trembled. They sobbed. "It can't be," an elderly woman said as she fell to her knees on Chambers Street. "It just can't be. Where did it go? Oh, lord, where did it go?"

MICHAEL CAMMARATA

World Trade Center 'DON'T MOURN ME'

A day after Michael Cammarata died in the attack on the World Trade Center, his brother, Joseph, went through his things looking for a birth certificate. On the top drawer of Michael's night table, Joseph found a letter -- the kind of letter that a brother never wants to read. It was a what-to-do list in case something happened to him.

No. 1 on the list: "Take care of Jenna," referring to his girlfriend of seven years.

No. 2: "Don't mourn me. This is the career I chose." Michael Cammarata, 22, was a firefighter with Ladder Company 11 in Manhattan. He died on the ninth week of a 14-week training program. He lived with his parents in Huguenot, Staten Island.

No. 3: "Make my spirit live on." No. 4: "Remember I love you all and will be waiting for you upstairs." From the time he was 7, Michael Cammarata wanted to be a firefighter. He was fascinated by fire engines and trucks. In his fireman's test, which he took with his brother, Michael got a perfect score; Joseph did not. "They wanted to be together," his mother, Linda Cammarata said of her two sons. "Thank God they didn't." Joseph, 24, is a police officer. On Jan. 14, he, too, will join the Fire Department.

ROKO CAMAJ
World Trade Center
WORKING A THE TOP THE WORLD

Roko Camaj had a job few would envy: window washer at the World Trade Center. Several times a year, suspended 1,300 feet above earth, he and his partner would suds up the 107th floor windows, the highest windows on the building and too wide for the building's automated window-washing system. The rest of the year, he operated the machines that crawled down the side of the buildings. ''He wasn't scared of anything,'' said his brother, Kole Camaj. ''He had no fear.'' For years, Roko's wife thought he washed only window interiors, until she saw a newspaper account of his job. When she learned the truth, Kole Camaj said, she was furious. Roko would remind her how safe his job was, that the basket and his harness were both well tethered to the building. His son, Vincent, said his father loved his job and considered it an escape. ''He'd always say, 'It was me and the sky up here. I bother no one, and no one bothers me.' '' Last Monday, Roko, 60, an Albanian immigrant, returned home from a vacation to Montenegro, a birthday present from his daughter. All five Camaj brothers, most of them scattered around the globe, had taken the voyage together. ''It was a great pleasure,'' Kole Camaj said. ''Everyone was so happy.''

LIAM CALLAHAN
World Trade Center
MANY CITATIONS FOR HEROISM

Liam Callahan always made it out of dangerous situations. So it was fully expected that Mr. Callahan, a Port Authority police officer, would emerge from the trade center wreckage -- even if days later.

So his wife, Joan, waited. They were supposed to celebrate 20 years of marriage on Sept. 12. But his homecoming was going to be sweeter, a wedding anniversary combined with a hero's welcome at their home in Rockaway, N.J., where they were raising four children: Brian, 17; Bridget, 15; Ellen, 13; and James, 11. Officer Callahan, however, died in the line of duty.

Police work was the lifeblood of Officer Callahan, 44, a 22-year police veteran who got at least a half of a dozen citations for exemplary actions, including a group citation for "heroic efforts" during the first trade center bombing in 1993, the police said.

One of his first rescues as a rookie came on Sept. 9, 1982. A distraught 20-year-old man was threatening to jump from the roof of the Port Authority bus terminal. "Suddenly, he slid closer to the edge, and I grabbed him," Officer Callahan told The New York Post that day. "If I didn't get him then, he would have been gone."

New York City woke up to another day on September 12th, 2001, but it wasn't just another day. It couldn't possibly be.
It was a city of less. Less traffic, less noise, less people, less activity, less momentum, less certainty, less joy.
The dawn did not erase the preceding day's agony — no dawn could — and so New Yorkers ate their meals, did the dishes and put out the trash, the mundane tasks of life, but nothing felt the same. The city seemed ever so much more fragile and unfamiliar.
On a day when work meant so much less than human companionship, when the very constructs of what it meant to live in New York came under question, New Yorkers spent much of their time in somber reflection as smoke continued to fill the skies above Lower Manhattan.
No one could glance downtown without feeling chills from the absence of the iconic Twin Towers. But in countless smaller ways, the reassuring signposts of daily life were not there.
People who lived near the city's busy airports, accustomed to the repetitive ear-splitting roar of jet engines, awoke to a day of uncomfortable silence. Smaller sounds resounded, for the bigger ones were gone. Sirens, one of the typical background noises of city life, seemed so much more ominous than ever before.
It was matinee day on Broadway — shows in the afternoon and evening — but the theaters were dark and shuttered. Performances canceled "due to tragic circumstances beyond our control."
So many stores were closed entirely, not sure when they would reopen. On the doors of the Virgin Megastore in Times Square, a notice said simply, "We are closed until further notice."
The stock exchange tape on the side of the Morgan Stanley offices on 48th Street reported no stock trades. There were none to report. Instead, there was information on an employee assistance phone line and pleas to give blood.
For everyone, the magnitude of what had happened was still being absorbed. People fumbled with what they would or would not do from now on. "I'll never go downtown again," said one man as he cried while walking down Lexington Avenue in the early morning. "Worked there 15 years. I'll never go down there again. There's nothing left." 📸: Keith Meyers

DOMINICK ENRICO CALIA
World Trade Center
A SPECIAL WEEKEND

The last weekend of his life was a special one for Dominick Enrico Calia — and typical, too.

After returning home to Manalapan, N.J., on Friday night from his job as a municipal bond broker at Cantor Fitzgerald, Mr. Calia, 40, quickly changed into gym clothes, then coached baseball practice for his son's team. The next morning, he and his wife, Janet, ushered their two daughters to separate soccer practices. Then, for the first time in 10 years, he and his wife spent 24 hours away from the kids. They went to Cape May and Atlantic City. The next morning, they made it back for — of course — another soccer practice.

Perhaps you get the picture: Mr. Calia was very active in his children's lives, from never-ending athletics to frequent trips to New York City. And now, their son, Dominick Richard Calia, wants to change his middle name so he can be Dominick Jr. "My son is 7 years old," Mrs. Calia said. "I tell him, `The seven years you had with dad is a lifetime, and some people don't even get that. It's the quality, not the quantity, that counts.' "

KENNETH MARCUS "KENNY" CALDWELL

THE KICKNIC KID

You know how most people have to bend down to scratch their knee? Kenny Caldwell did not, because he had hands the size of baseball mitts and arms that went on forever. "He was a little slim Jimmy," said his mother, Elsie Caldwell, from his hometown, Philadelphia, "with big hands and a big, big heart. I called him my little chocolate drop." Mr. Caldwell, 30, liked being a technology salesman for Alliance Consulting Group on the 102nd floor of 1 World Trade Center. But what he loved was figuring out ways to get people together. "I used to call him the C.E.O., chief entertainment officer," said his older brother, Leon Caldwell. He even invented an annual event: the International Kicknic Contest, held every August in Prospect Park in Brooklyn, for an ever-expanding circle of friends and family to play kickball and catch up. "My neighbors used to tease me about him while he was growing up," Mrs. Caldwell said. "They'd say other kids collect stray cats and dogs, but your Kenny collects stray people."

Calderon was always proud to wear the uniform that marked him as a security guard for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, but his feet felt best in dancing shoes. "When I think of him I remember that he loved salsa," said his niece, Desiree Henley. "He was extremely outgoing, loved to dance." He was the life of any gathering, said his sister-in-law, Sandra Calderon. And for years, he organized a regular Wednesday night salsa party in different locations at the World Trade Center for anybody who wanted to come, said his brother, Anthony. "He liked to act and he wanted to direct — he was an entertainer," Anthony said. "That was his knowledge. That was his calling." Eddie Calderon, 43, lived in Jersey City and worked at the trade center for 22 years. He was last seen running toward the north tower after helping guide dozens of workers to safety. He was hoping to reach a few more just before the building collapsed, Mr. Calderon's boss told his brother.

JOSEPH CALANDRILLO
World Trade Center
SWEETNESS OF SPIRIT

When Joseph M. Calandrillo was about 8, his cousin was ill, and she asked him to run some errands. When he was done, she rewarded him with a quarter. He went back to the store and used the quarter to buy her a get-well card.

It was that gracious spirit that he carried into adulthood. His wife, Deborah, referred to him as "the sweetest of husbands." Mr. Calandrillo, 49, a treaty accountant with Reinsurance Solutions International, part of Marsh & McLennan, met his wife-to-be 25 years ago at a restaurant in Brooklyn, the borough where they both grew up. He told his family when he got home that she was the one he was going to marry. She thought he was very nice but did not immediately leap to the same conclusion. But they went out the next night and the night after, and then every week. "Everyone always said my husband and I had a marriage you didn't see," she said. "We were always laughing and having a good time. We were best buddies. Our marriage was our greatest success." Mrs. Calandrillo characterized them as a "Green Acres" couple. She loved the city; he loved the country. They lived in Brooklyn for a while and then, five years ago, moved to Hawley, Pa. "I had my turn, so it was his turn," Mrs. Calandrillo said. "And I grew to love the country." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on April 21, 2002.

SALVATORE B. CALABRO
World Trade Center I

HONORING A STRUGGLE

Here is one thing that says a lot about Salvatore B. Calabro: He wore a tattoo of a cross and roses on his right forearm, with the inscription, "In memory of Mom 11- 30-89." His mother, Connie, struggled to raise him and his two brothers on her own; he never forgot.

Mr. Calabro made his mother proud, a good boy from Bath Beach, Brooklyn, who wore a firefighters' uniform for 14 years, said his father-in-law, Francis Carillo, a retired New York City police officer. Mr. Calabro, 38, built a solid middle class life for his wife, Francene, and two sons, Daniel, 5, and Alexander James, 2.

Another thing that spoke to his essence: He was a good son-in-law. It had nothing to do with toeing the line because he married one of two daughters of a police officer. He was just that way, Mr. Carillo said. "When I met him, I had guarded feelings," said Mr. Carillo. "He was marrying my baby daughter. But as I got to know him, all of that went away. He became the son I never had. "He was a gentle person, but he had the heart and courage of a lion," Mr. Carillo said.

343 stairs. Worth it 🇦🇹 #Vienna2017 #SouthTower

Flying over the World Trade Center complex during construction in January 1971. The North Tower was topped out at 1,368 ft a month earlier on December 23, 1970 and became the tallest building in the world, while the South Tower reached the area around the 70th/72nd floor. This perspective offers a great view of the 5 acre plaza during construction and the later location of the fountain and the Sphere. A part of the landfill created with 1,200,000 cubic yards (920,000 m3) of excavated material (along with other fill and drege material) during the Trade Center's early construction can be seen in the background - the old piers disappeared...

When John B. Cahill was an undergraduate at Boston College, he was a real good-time guy, and his friends nicknamed him Mad Dog. But he calmed down and matured into a gregarious family man with a quirky sense of humor.

Mr. Cahill, 56, lived with his wife, Sharon, and two sons, Brett, 17, and Sean, 15, in Wellesley, Mass., and worked as a vice president of the systems group at Xerox. But he planned to retire at the end of the year to start his own consulting business. The name of it was MDI. His family knew what the initials stood for: Mad Dog Industries.

On Sept. 11, he was on Flight 175 to Los Angeles, where he was going to visit a friend and do some work on the new business. He had a passion for travel; the family had lived in England and Brazil. He was fond of Latin America, and planned to make it a focus of MDI. "He loved the people," Mrs. Cahill said. "They work to live instead of living to work." Mr. Cahill spoke Spanish and Portuguese, and his interest in languages was picked up by his children. Brett is taking three languages — French, Spanish and German. "He got that from John," Mrs. Cahill said, "who realized the world was smaller than it seems." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on December 2, 2001.
