Subject: RE: BS: Where were you when.......
On 9/11, I had gone in early to the office and did not know about the attacks until our staff accountant came in and let me know right after the first plane had hit the towers. I turned on the TV in the office and caught it just as the second plane hit the other tower. I, with the rest of the office staff, sat in my office all day and watched the continuing coverage.

One of the most erie things of that entire day as well as the days to follow was that our office was underneath one flight lines for DFW airport. When we found out about the FAA grounding the entire fleet, we walked outside and witnessed hundreds of planes circling the DFW area waiting to land. It was odd to not hear planes arriving or departing the area for several days. The only planes that we saw were the military jets patrolling the city from the local Naval Air Station.
