NYPD Releases Chilling 9/11 Helicopter Photos

NEW YORK — Newly released aerial photos of the Sept. 11, 2001, World Trade Center attack show the towers coming down from a dramatic new angle.

The photos were obtained by ABC News, which filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the National Institute of Standards and Technology last year. The NIST collected the images as part of its investigation into the terrorist attack.

ABC said it was provided 2,779 pictures on nine CDs. Many of the photos, taken from police helicopters, have never been released before.

Twelve of the photos appear on ABC’s Web site. One photo shows a close-up of the upper floors of the burning towers. Others show the towers’ dramatic collapse in a thick plume of smoke and debris and sweeping views of billowing smoke clouds.

All photos courtesy of the NYPD.



This photo of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center is one of 13 taken from a helicopter by New York City police Det. Greg Semendinger.

    The words THANK YOU don't even begin to cover the amount of gratitude, it's a shame that most people in this country have forgotten about that day.

    Can someone remind Obama about this date in history please... Maybe show him a few of these pics, maybe refresh his memory a little.. After viewing these pics, go browse the military videos on this site and laugh at our response on their turf.. I am!!! Makes you miss George W. doesn't it????
