Planes.

Click here to see a graphic that shows the flight paths of the various 9/11 flights. The drastic course changes are interesting to see, particularly when you click on the bottom setting and see them all run at once.

And on a lighter note, here's a joke a friend just sent me...

Friendly Skies of West Jet Airlines

A mother and her very young son were flying Westjet Airlines from Ottawa to Calgary.

The little boy (who had been looking out the window) turned to his mother and asked, "If big dogs have baby dogs, and big cats have baby cats, why don't big airplanes have baby airplanes?"

The mother (who couldn't think of an answer) told her son to ask the stewardess.

So the boy went down the aisle and asked the stewardess.

The stewardess, who was very busy at the time, smiled and said, "Did your Mom tell you to ask me?"

The boy said, "Yes, she did."

"Well, then, you go and tell your mother that there are no baby airplanes because Westjet always pulls out on time. Have your Mom explain that to you."

Hehe. Is that a real airline? It must not be because I don't think any of them pull out on time.

The graphic of the 9/11 flights was eerie. It still seems unfathomable that they were able to pull off such a feat.
