Fourteen years ago 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists made a coordinated attack with airliners on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.  Another aircraft was pointed toward Washington, D.C. when it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  A San Antonio photographer was in the thick of the destruction in New York City

On Patriot Day people in San Antonio reflect on the events of September 11, 2001.

First responders from 50 different agencies around Texas will be paying tribute this morning to the hundreds of firefighters, law enforcement, and EMS personnel who lost their lives at the World Trade Center by climbing the Tower of the Americas. It's the San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb. They will climb it twice to meet and exceed the height of the WTC towers.

A $26 million visitor complex honoring the victims of Flight 93 was dedicated and opened to the public on Thursday. The United Airlines plane was one of four hijacked by al-Qaida on Sept. 11, 2001, and the only flight that didn't reach its target.

Passengers forced the terrorists in control of the plane to deliberately crash it in rural Pennsylvania. Forty crew and passengers were killed, along with the four hijackers.

Their presumed target was the U.S. Capitol.
