2001: Three hijacked aircraft are deliberately crashed into the twin World Trade Center towers in New York City and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, in a coordinated attack that became known as "9/11." Another hijacked airliner in the same attack crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after the passengers fought with hijackers for control of the flight. Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the attacks, which were later tied to Osama bin Laden and the al-Qaida terrorist organization.
