4.5. The Pentagon The hole that was left after American Airlines Flight 77 flew into the Pentagon was much smaller than the actual commercial plane.

Now they are scorching into flames, and by 10:30 both towers had fallen straight down. It seems like the towers should have toppled over, but they did not, but It fell straight down. However, the planes hit so high up in the towers that the towers did not topple over, now if the planes hit lower they would have toppled over.
1- Air Canada flight 797. Air Canada Flight 797 was a projected trans-border flight that hovered from Dallas/Fort Worth Global Airport to Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau Global Airport, alongside an intermediate halt at Toronto Pearson Global Airport. On 2 June 1983, the McDonnell Douglas DC-9-32 working the ability industrialized an in-flight fire behind the washroom that range amid the beyond skin and the inner decor panels, filling the plane alongside toxic smoke. The spreading fire additionally blazed across critical mechanical cables that knocked out most of the instrumentation in the cockpit, compelling the plane to redirect to an alternative landing field. Ninety seconds afterward the plane arrived and the doors were opened, the warmth of the fire and new oxygen from the open exit doors crafted flashover conditions, and the plane's inside instantly came to be engulfed in blazes, killing 23 travelers who had yet to evacuate the aircraft.
The plane, which held nine passengers as well as two crew members, was en route from Nepalgunj town to the mountain village of Jumla. According to the report, the weather was clear along the route, leaving the malfunction of the helicopter up to the defective mechanisms inside of the helicopter. Also, it was stated that police and army rescuers were on their way to the remote site and a helicopter was called in from Kathmandu for further assistance.

Just shortly after their first big setback the Soviets put themselves down again when on July 1967 Vladimir Komarov died when the spacecraft he was in failed to successfully deploy its parachutes on reentry, which lowered the morale of the Soviets program.

Sandstorm (Tofane Shen): This movie depicts “Operation Eagle Claw,” the failed American mission to rescue the American hostages. In April 1980, eight RH-53D helicopters flew from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz to a remote road serving as an airstrip in the Great Salt Desert of Eastern Iran near Tabas. The sandstorms shift the field of vision for the American aircraft. As the helicopters repositioned themselves for refueling, one helicopter crashed into a C-130 tanker, killing eight U.S. servicemen and injuring several more. After the mission and its failure were made public, Khomeini 's prestige skyrocketed in Iran as he credited divine intervention on behalf of Islam for the result.
Initally, al-Qaeda considered targeting nuclear power plants on 9/11, but decided to go against it because they feared it would get too out of control. Four passenger airlines, all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California, were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda members. One plane hit the Pentagon just outside of Washington D.C., the second plane crashed in a field in Pennslyvania, and the last two planes crashed into the Twin Towers. Within one hour and 42 minutes both 110 story towers were completely on the ground, with debris filling the air and fires starting to spread. Numerous other buildings at the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan were destroyed or badly damaged.
Mandrake, still on the base, discovers the code and relays it to the President. Mandrake is assumed to have saved the day; the code works and all aircrafts retreat, with the exception of two which Soviet officials have claimed were shot down. Unfortunately, a call from the Soviet Prime Minister revises that statement, now claiming that only one plane was shot down and that one badly damaged plane remains. Major Kong and his men finally reach their destination and drop the bomb. Devastated, President Muffley calls upon Dr.Strangelove to explain the consequences of the doomsday device.
Mark Twain once said, “It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.” Giving up your life for some random people in the same situation as you isn’t a simple task to do. In the op-ed “The Man in the Water” written by Roger Rosenblatt based on a true incident on January 13, 1982, of a plane crash. Air Florida Flight 90 took off from Washington National Airport, which later crashed into the Potomac River was caused by the ice on the plane’s wings and crashed as it caused damage to the surroundings. There were seventy-eight people on the plane and only five survived with the help of rescuers. In the essay “The Man in The Water”, Roger Rosenblatt demonstrated moral courage by showing the bravery

President Dwight D. Eisenhower had been sending U2 spy planes over the USSR since 1956, but in 1960 one of his planes got shot down while flying over the Soviet Union. His planes were said to have had state-of-the-art photography that could take pictures of Russian newspaper headlines while flying overhead. When one plane disappeared Dwight told people that a weather plane had flown off course and crashed in the USSR. Khrushchev, the Soviet Union leader, then displayed a mostly-intact wreckage of the plane and the alive pilot for people to see. Eisenhower had to publicly admit that the U.S was indeed cheating by trying to conduct espionage over the USSR.
Escaping the media was what the Lindbergh’s were focused on when deciding to have a house built in a secluded area. Suddenly, everything that felt right went wrong when someone came and kidnapped their only child. This kidnapping became one of the most well-known crimes of the century.
