This series of photographs shows hijacked United Airlines Flight 175 as it approaches (upper L) and impacts the World Trade Center's south tower (L), bursting into flames and raining a hail of debris on lower Manhattan September 11, 2001. A gaping hole in the north tower (R) can be seen following a similar attack earlier in the day. Three hijacked planes crashed into major U.S. landmarks September 11, destroying both of New York's mighty twin towers and plunging the Pentagon in Washington into flames, in an unprecedented assault on key symbols of U.S. military and financial power.
