This must-read THR story recalls television news coverage of 9/11/01. An excerpt:

‘I thought it was an accident, as incredible as that may seem now,’ says Scott, who is a pilot and aviation enthusiast. ‘It should have hit me right away that, OK, they didn’t bring the towers down in ’93 so they were going to try it again from the air.’ On the air, Scott was talking to an expert at 9:03 a.m. when United Airlines Flight 175 smashed into the South Tower.”
