Where were you on Sept. 11, 2001 — when America changed forever?
Fox News
At 8:46 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, America was changed forever. A passenger plane which had left Boston bound for Los Angeles crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York. As news crews showed the American Airlines plane sticking out of the iconic building, a stunned national audience initially thought it might be some sort of horrible accident. But when another plane struck the south tower just 17 minutes later, the awful truth could no longer be avoided. This had been an act of terrorism, conducted by terrorist hijackers on unthinkable suicide missions.

New testing from Washington State University dismantles the fear and shows the strength of a lag-screw connected ledger ... without the extra metal.
