The other crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania due to the effective response of the terrorists on board at 10:03, killing 40 people.
The final statistics of US officials show that a total of 2,996 people have died, including brave firefighters who rescued people trapped in the WTC.
Approximately 3,000 people were killed when al-Qaeda hijackers flew three planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. on September 11, 2001. Another plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
A compensation fund was set up shortly after the attack to compensate the families of the victims.
