Audio files reveal 9/11 air traffic horror



Published: Thu, September 8, 2011 @ 1:09 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — Newly posted audio files depict the horror of 9/11 unfolding from the perspective of air traffic controllers.

The audio files and transcripts appear on the Rutgers Law Review website and were first reported on today by The New York Times.

The discussion topics begin with early reports of hijackings and include the scrambling of fighter jets.

In one excerpt, someone in a New York radar control center says: “Another one just hit the building.”

Someone responds: “Oh my God.”

And then: “Another one just hit it hard. ... Another one just hit the World Trade.”

It’s followed by: “The whole building just, ah, came apart.”

Someone utters again: “Oh my God.”

The audio compilation was made as part of the 9/11 Commission investigation into al-Qaida’s attacks, but was not completed before the commission shut down in 2004.
