The Towers July 2001

I dedicate this post for those too young to remember and those mature enough to lament. July 2001 was the last time my eyes gazed at these magnificent columns of concrete and steel in New York City. I remember the Cold War was over and no new enemies were in sight. There was a balanced budget and a former Texas Governor was the new President. The News of the day revolved around a missing intern who may have had an affair with a Congressman from California. Legally Blonde and Jurassic Park III had just come out in theaters. Gas was $1.60 per gallon and anyone who knew what email was used AmericaOnLine with a lightning fast 14.4bps dial up modem. Everyone was optimistic.

Of course, all that changed two months later. It's been 15 years and I still find it difficult to imagine the City without them. Hopefully, you can enjoy this simulation as much as I remember the real thing. NOTE: It's a large file, so, expect lag when loading. There are 2 Cameras at Ground Level and 3 on the Roof. Enjoy and Thanks for 3000!

    @Thegoldenwarrior750 i would use either Avalanche (take off from Wright and do a 180 like going to Uss tiny two and aim for the rock pillars and fly in that direction) or use Wright its self

    Too bad I can’t download this. I saw this on my television back in Russia, it was kind of shocked. I was expecting a country to be nuclear attacked by u.s.

    @UFNNICF5TF just because I can’t make the aircraft, doesn’t mean I can’t have an opinion on it
