Do you understand? “They’re here!” shouted a voice from the hallway. President Martin looked up from his paper on tumbling economies on wall street. He wearily looked into the hall, when suddenly secret service members came bursting through the door and grabbed him from behind his desk. “Let’s go Mr. President, ready the shuttle, eagle is going underground.” President Martin was shunted forward out of the office down the hall and into the panic elevator. The red door closed and the elevator started downward. No one said a word, but thoughts flew through the president’s head. Who was here? What did they want? Does this mean war? Is it the Zulus again? The last thought was a little farfetched, but he could not rule out anything (President …show more content…
He looked just in time to see a missile hit one of the cylindrical mechanisms. The red explosion turned into black smoke and the ship fell and smashed into the white house. The news reporter with the green tie put his finger to his ear. While the white house burned behind him, he said, “It seems the spaceship has crashed into the white house. And the president is dead.” He then continued to beat other passerby’s. The president sat back in his seat, he breathed a sigh of relief, happy that the invasion never actually occurred. He would have to tell the nation that he was still alive, much to their dismay. The main screen flashed on again. The president's heart sank as another aliens face stared down at him. This alien looked more official, with eyes that were more sure, an almost suit looking piece of cloth on it's body, and a flat hat sitting on it's head. A pale middle finger rose from it's hand. “I think he’s giving you the bird sir” said one of the guards who had the bad tendency to always speak his mind. “No son,” mocked President Martin “I think it’s for you.” The main screen shut off. The monitor for the outside of the white house showed another larger Fordish looking spaceship flew over the exploded second spacecraft. A tractor beam nabbed all evidence of the wreckage and took it into the hull of the ship. Afterwards a small stream of liquid was sprayed off the side of the ship and the spacecraft flew off into the sky. The president sat
The president of the United States emerged from the north White House Lawn to the waiting press and cameras. With a brief smile and wave, he looked down at the scripted message written by his staff and personally edited to fit the mood of the nation about the incident at the resort and national security of the nation. It was going to be a monumental day. He looked up once more with a dire countenance this time...
Lastly, the fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The flight that crashed was United 93. The hijackers intended to hit the white house, but passengers rebelled against the hijackers because they were concerned about the president's safety.(complex). Many passengers called family members to tell them what was happening. Forty people were killed in the crash. (simple)
Then the first plane came in close, too close. The next thing we knew there was a huge ball of smoke and ash coming from the first tower. The first plane had hit! We had no idea what to do, so we just watched.
It felt like forever had passed, but as I kept looking up at the clock, I realized it had only been a few minutes from since we first reached the huge break room tables. My supervisor finally went up to the front of the break room and through his tears, he managed to inform us that hijackers had taken over airplanes and collided them into the Twin Towers in New York City. So much silence filled the room; you could hear a pin drop. Everybody’s blank and puzzled gazes twisted into an afraid and horrified look, like they had just seen a ghost appear. Mr. Smith, the vice president of the company, told us not to fear too much, New York is a long way away from us. Not one person moved an inch. There were looks of horror and shock throughout the break room. A few seconds of quietness passed when finally Mrs. Smith turned on the televisions in the break room. The only thing I saw was smoke, dust, haze, torn clothing, buildings on fire, and people running around trying to take cover. My mind will never forget that picture, it still feels like it happened just yesterday. We all sat completely horrified in fear as everyone pondered if we would
explosions rumbled from within and tore her apart. Lifeboats were deployed but to no avail as chaos
Nearly thirty minutes after the terrorists launched their take over, the passengers charged the cockpit door. The hijackers attempted knocking the passengers off balance by pitching the nose of the airplane up and down. The passengers did not give up; they continued their assault until the hijacker knew they were about to break through. The flight was going over Shanksville, Pennsylvania and the pilot decided to aim the airplane going 580 miles per hour into an abandoned field only about twenty minutes from its original target, Washington, D.C. where they planned on attacking the White House (CNN).
"On the short walk from the motorcade to the classroom, Karl Rove mentioned that an airplane had crashed into the World Trade Centre. That sounded strange. I envisioned a little propeller plane horribly lost," writes Bush.
As they were going in the two airplanes that had hit the building were stopped and it turns out that the people who had hit the two buildings had been terrorists that didn’t have enough strength to attack the army/Navy air force.
The first plane crash left horrible impact of a cracking and burning hole near the 80th floor of the 110-story high-rise building, which immediately resulted in assassinating hundreds of people and ambushed a huge number of people on the higher floors. Initially broadcast from the television and live coverage appeared to be an accident when the evacuation process of both towers was ongoing. However, a couple of minutes after the first plane crash, a second plane which was from United airlines, suddenly appeared in the sky and crashed into the south tower near the 60th floor.
He now had two hours to kill, he decided to head to the mess and get something to eat and some coffee. He realized he hadn’t eaten anything in over a day. After he left the CP a Corporal came running out and called him back telling him the President was on a secure channel ready to speak with him now. Caught by surprise by the change of events he turned around and headed back into the CP and the secure radio station.
The two boys then left the laboratory and hit the streets. They were astonished by what they saw. Cars were soaring through the air, people were weaving in between others on hoverboards, and buildings rose for miles. People were happy, and they could not see a frown on anyone's face. Suddenly, the side of a building lit up, and quickly it became a giant T.V. screen. The picture showed a man with a gun in his hand, and was holding it against another man's head. The man that was being held had a suit on, and they were both in what looked to be the Oval Office. The man with the gun started
THUD… The jets have landed. I could barely see them, but they were small by most standards - less than 500 meters long. It was full of blinking lights, but the core stood out with its bright green glow composed of a strange, almost fluid substance that shimmered in the light. When I stared at them, the jets almost seemed to move, as if they were alive. Finally, when the jets landed, the sides of the ships opened up like hundreds of large mouths.
