September 11th Remembered in 3D in Google Earth

WTC under attack in Google EarthI noticed a popular model at the Google 3DWarehouse today was this one showing the World Trade Center buildings under attack viewable in Google Earth. This screenshot is of the GE 4 version, but there is a GE 3 version as well. It is sad to think of the senseless waste of life and material caused by a few misguided individuals - and the resulting increased level of control over everyone's lives to try and protect us from evil insanity. It is hard to believe it has been 5 years already.

[EDIT: added another scene from 9/11] Here is the Pentagon as Flight 77 approached before it crashed into the building. From this post by 'meiradarocha'. Wikipedia on Flight 77.

    since there is such amazing detail, and hard work put into this, I feel obligated to to mention that it is unfortunately backwards. it illustrates the north tower being hit from the south and west ( the location of the impact hole ) with smoke flowing to the north. In actuality the aircraft came down manhattan island from the north and the smoke billowed ( for a week ) to the south, and slightly west. I was a lower manhattan resident at the time of the attack.

    nice work otherwise.
