The events on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, are just as vivid today as they were 22 years ago for both Fallon Mayor Ken Tedford and former mayor and councilman Robert Erickson. With people already settled into their daily routines on the East Coast and those in the West just waking up, the September morning began as a normal day for thousands of Nevadans. The morning calm, though, was shattered with the hijacking of four passenger jets. By the end of the day, more than 3,000 people died when two of the commandeered jets crashed into New York City’s World Trade Center on the south end of Manhattan. Terrorists hijacked another jet and flew it into the Pentagon, and a fourth jet, United Flight 93, crashed in a western Pennsylvania field after passengers overwhelmed hijackers in an attempt to wrestle control.
