The attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11th, 2001.

Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners and flew two of them into the Twin Towers in New York and one into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. The attacks had a profound effect on the whole world - leading to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and permanently altering relations between the USA and muslim nations.
