This high-resolution satellite image, offered by Customaps, shows aircrafts loading passengers in Newark International Airport, an airport owned by the city of Newark, 15 miles (24 km) southwest of Midtown Manhattan. It is leased and operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Newark Airport was the first major airport in the United States. Through 2013 it was also New York and New Jersey's busiest one in terms of flights.
During the September 11th 2001 attacks, United Airlines Flight 93 from Newark to San Francisco was hijacked, but the passengers revolted, forcing the hijackers to crash the aircraft into an empty field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Based on the direction the plane was flying in at the time as well as on the information gathered afterwards, most observers believe that the hijackers intended to crash the plane somewhere in Washington, D.C. (such as the Capitol or White House). A flag now stands over Gate A17, the gate from which the flight pushed back that day.
