There have been many changes in airline security following the events of 9/11. From improved secure cockpits, new screening machines, better screeners, and now new protocols. This will hopefully prevent another breach at our airports. If airport personnel had been better trained and more diligent about the possibility of such a thing happening like 9/11 it could have been avoided. The new personnel and equipment along with the United States government in control of the airports is a new system that will now lessen the chance of another
For any American around during the events of 9/11 this is a tragically reminiscent film of that day. Very simple in its execution, and heart wrenching to watch, "United 93" tells the story, in real time, of the American heroes who felled flight 93, United Airlines. The action that takes place on the plane feels very real, the tension brought on by the terrorists feels consequential and terrifying, and how sad it is to see these people say goodbye to their loved ones, and try to take control of their situation. The movie details the accounts of this horrific
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. The plane was 125 feet long, however the hole left behind was 16 feet long, which lead a lot of people to question whether it was in fact the plane that crashed into the pentagon or was it hit by a foreign object and was made to look like a plane. 4.6. United Airlines Flight 93
Nobody knew, it was a rude awakening. If the terrorist did not blend in officers would be able to arrest them as fast as possible, but before officers do anything they must take as many safety measures as needed. It was all 10,000 gallons of jet fuel ready to destroy America forever. The time is taking its precious little... It is 9:00 AM, American airline #11 crashed in between the 93rd-99th floor of the North Tower.
Before September 11, 2001, the United States was believed to be a super power. It was considered untouchable. This belief made the idea of a terrorist attack on the U.S. impossible to fathom. At 8:46 am EST, United Airlines flight 175 crashed into the north tower of the Twin Towers in New York City. A total of four commercial planes were hijacked that day by terrorists with kamikaze like intentions.
The morning of Tuesday September 11, 2011 is one of the biggest tradgies of all time. On this specific day four airlines were hijacked by an Islamic group that goes by the name al-Qaeda. The attacks took the lives of 2,996 innocent people, injured nearly 6,000 people, and caused at least $10 billion in infracture and property damage. These attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, will forever be remebered as one of the most horrific days for so many people around this world.
The massive explosion caused burning debris to shower over the surrounding buildings and onto the streets below, which made it clear that America was now under attack. The terrorist attack killed 2,977 people. This awful event left a scar on America’s society. American Airline Flight 11 was hijacked and flown into the north tower of the World Trade Center
The U.S government should use drones because it will help us protect our borders securely, help fight with unexpected natural disasters and help our police force to document crime scenes. First, Our southern border has attracted our attention more and more every day.
For instance, Riddle reports, “…no one really knew how it would affect the people or the environment.” The US didn’t know what the atomic bomb could do, just that it would cause mass destruction. They could have been condemning the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to a hideous fate, but they dropped the bomb anyways. For a country that says they’re saving people, many of those people stilled ended up dying because of the US. In addition, “…almost 3,800 people (of 10,412) who had died from the blast or related to the blast, were found to have developed lung cancers” (Riddle).
Each plane had a distinctive destination. These locations included The World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and an undisclosed location, which we will never know. The terrorist had a calculated plan and initiated an attack so horrible that three hundred and forty three firefighters and paramedics lost their lives. Twenty three New York City police officers and thirty seven Port Authority police officers were also killed. Could we have had less casualties if we, our nation, was better prepared?
September 11, 2001: this date has changed America forever. How far has airport security come so it can be as safe as it can be for all boarding passengers? Shortly after the terrorist attack on the United States of America, airports were closed; airports needed to recuperate by inheriting better technology. Airports started to use better scanners called Computer Tomography Scanners. This scanner checks baggage and carry on 's for harmful items.
The study presented in the article, “The Sky’s the Limit: A Modern Approach To Airport Security,” by author Andrea Simbro, focuses on the constitutional implications of the government 's use of body scanners at airport screening checkpoints. With the constant growth of technology, airport security devices advance as well, to detect new threats. The author extends by saying that in the effort to detect nonmetallic threats, TSA’s primary method for screening is by utilizing advanced body scanners. In an August 2012, Gallup Poll, approximately 46% of regular travelers stated that current screening procedures were ineffective in preventing acts of terrorism on an aircraft. Passengers also found body scanners to be aggressive, inconvenient, and
