The Air Traffic Controllers of 9/11
NBC 52 min. Watch on Google.
Aired on the first anniversary of 9/11. The air traffic controllers in charge of the skies over America on the morning of 9/11 witnessed the nightmare. What these professionals witnessed, even now, is hard to fathom and what they did was extraordinary, unprecedented and a first in aviation history - within four hours from when controllers lost contact with the first airliner they safely cleared the U.S. skies of over 3,000 planes.
