It was 18 years ago today, planes across the globe were grounded as horrifying news spread, the Twin Towers in New York City had fallen.
Many can remember where they were when they heard the news, communities across the province prepared for re-routed planes with thousands of stranded passengers aboard.
18 Years after 9/11, We Remember.
