This was the deadliest attack in US history that involved four commercial planes. The terrorist attack resulted in casualties not just in the airplanes but also people on the streets. This marked the most significant one-day loss ever to hit the commercial aviation history. American Airlines Flight 11 claimed more than 1,700 lives while United Airlines Flight 175 followed closely with 1,000 people. Both planes were driven into the famous Twin towers while the rest of the two planes hit the Pentagon and the other crashed in an open field. The September 11, 2001 attack was a series of well-crafted and coordinated against the United States by the al-Qaeda terrorist attack.
