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.
