The UK is receiving some odd 'censored' stuff. My friend, from Israel, read on a
Israeli news web site about the third building collapse (building 7 / Salomons
?) about 4 hours before they mentioned it here in the UK. Maybe that was a wrong
and/or coincidental report earlier, but it makes me wonder, and make me thankful
for the Internet in a way.
For those of us over the pond, sympathies for all those involved, and thanks to
folks on NANOG for keeping the operational information flowing. I expect that we
will hear about diesel failures here just before half of the European
connectivity fails from lower Manhattan...

ITV is showing some pretty good coverage in the UK. First plane strike,
second plane strike from several angles, I'm not sure there's video coverage
of the Pentagon collision.

It takes quite a bit more than you would expect. Something that you
neglect to remember is that the plane that struck the Pentagon was
initially headed directly towards the Whitehouse, then executed a
high-speed, high-bank turn around DC, lined up on the Pentagon and managed
to nose into it at mid-level.
I hadn't seen *any* footage at that point - I am in the UK and my normal
working day doesn't include TV sets (and of course streaming video reached
saturation and vanished long before we even knew anything was happening over
here) - and come to think of it, I *still* haven't seen any footage of the
pentagon attack. UK coverage seems limited to the second plane strike,
collapse, talking heads, rinse & repeat.....
