According to the book description of 9/11 Ordinary People: Extraordinary Heroes: NYC - The First Battle in the War Against Terror!, “as the tenth anniversary of the attack on New York City approaches, this new book relates the stories of many heroic people directly involved at the World Trade Center on 9/11. On September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 11 left Boston’s Logan airport at 7:59 a.m., followed fifteen minutes later, at 8:14 a.m., by United Airlines Flight 175. Both jets were subsequently hijacked by Islamic fundamentalist terrorists and rerouted to a flight path headed toward Manhattan. At 8:47 a.m., just 48 minutes after take-off, Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center; at 9:03 a.m., 16 minutes later, Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center."
