With armed U.S. Air Force F-15 Eagles circling above like angry hornets and a thick column of smoke rising from the wounded city, three officers aboard a Civil Air Patrol Cessna 172 were among the first to witness the terrible scope of the devastation wrought when hijacked airliners struck the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001. Their memories remain vivid. The photographs they took helped shape the emergency response, informed the investigation, and demonstrated the capability of the U.S. Air Force auxiliary.
