List of Connecticut 9/11 ceremonies and memorials

Community

(WTNH) — Several memorials and ceremonies are being held across the state to honor the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Wednesday marks eighteen years since terrorists hijacked four planes in 2001, crashing them into both the World Trade Center towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington. The fourth plane went down in a field in Pennsylvania.

Ceremonies are being held across the state today in several towns including Milford, Middletown and Mystic. Governor Lamont has also ordered all flags at half staff.

18 years ago today, the following events occurred:

8:46 a.m.: Hijackers crash American Airlines Flight 11 into floors 93 through 99 of the North Tower

9:03 a.m.: Hijackers crash United Airlines Flight 175 into floors 77 through 85 of the South Tower

9:37 a.m.: Hijackers crash American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon, near Washington, D.C.

9:59 a.m.: The South Tower collapses.

10:03 a.m.: After learning of the other attacks, passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 launch a counterattack on hijackers aboard their plane to try to seize control of the aircraft. In response, the hijackers crash the plane into an empty field near Shanksville, Pa.

10:28 a.m.: The North Tower collapses. The 16-acre World Trade Center site is in ruins, with collateral damage affecting all adjacent properties and streets. A rescue and recovery effort begins immediately.
