    Chilling aerial photos of 9/11 attack released - Yahoo! News

    AP – 1 hr 9 mins ago

    NEW YORK – A trove of aerial photographs of the collapsing World Trade Center was widely released this week, offering a rare and chilling view from the heavens of the burning twin towers and the apocalyptic shroud of smoke and dust that settled over the city.

    The images were taken from a police helicopter — the only photographers allowed in the airspace near the skyscrapers on Sept. 11, 2001. They were obtained by ABC after it filed a Freedom of Information Act request last year with the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the federal agency that investigated the collapse.

    The chief curator of the planned Sept. 11 museum pronounced the pictures "a phenomenal body of work."

    The photos are "absolutely core to understanding the visual phenomena of what was happening," said Jan Ramirez of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. They are "some of the most exceptional images in the world, I think, of this event."

    In some of the pictures, the tops of the nearby Woolworth Building and other skyscrapers can just be seen above the enormous cloud of debris, gray against a clear blue sky. Gray clouds billow through the streets of the financial district and shroud the 16 acres where the towers had stood just moments before....

    These photos are no big deal. A different camera angle doesn't make them chilling.

    Almost as chilling as some of the photos of our attack on a country that never attacked us and without the capacity to do so ~

    Moderator's Warning:
    Chilling aerial photos of 9/11 attack releasedThank you for your attempted political message, however the topic of this thread is the pictures and discussing the story, not attempting to turn this into a "yeah, but look what WE did" argument back and forth. Take it to another thread if you wish to make the point

    I saw these this morning earlier, really quite astounding.
