This is a visually stunning picture, and unbelievably powerful, nice work :)

although, next time you might want to use the right kind of plane. The jets which hit the towers were 767s, they only had two engines Sweating a little...

It reminds me of Max Payne 1 where this WTC is shown during loading screen of final chapter when I had to take Nicole Horne out.

Nice art, but UAL 175 was a B767 not an A340.

I watched the video of the 9\11 attacks, since i was 3 at the time it happened...And when the second plane hit the south tower it look so unreal...i love the picture, it captures the mood perfectly.

Wow. I was looking for a piece to share today. I was looking for a more upbeat tribute, but this piece is too good to pass on. This isn't a perspective most people think of because most of us weren't anywhere near New York city that day. great job. And as for the plane being "wrong" that's a level of knowledge most lay people don't have. I wouldnt have known if I hadn't perused the comments. I think sometimes artists have forgetting that art isn't always accurate in these days of graphic media innundation. It looks incredible and tells a story. That's what counts.

Very good work. Definitely a terrifying moment for the people in the area.

I would like to point out that the planes that hit the towers were two-engined Boeing 767s, though.

i agree with most of the other commenters. VERY haunting, not just for anyone who lost loved ones on that fateful day, but to any American worth their weight in patriotism.

NEVER forget September 11th, 2001.

i find this quite haunting. i lost my aunt in the south tower of the WTC when flight 175 stuck her building.
i didn't understand because i just turned five a week before. but i only remember my dad crying for about a week. he lost his older sister that day.

It's a bit ironic, but I'm actually happy I found this. For once there's a piece on deviantART about 9/11 that show the tragedy without giving frustrating nationalist overtones. I appreciate something that can capture the horror of a moment without it's ridiculous consequences. Good job.
