The Only Plane in the Sky Review

Review by Laura L.

It’s hard to imagine that it’s been 20 years.  20 years since we all rushed to our TVs to see history unfold right before our eyes.  I distinctly remember standing around a small TV screen discussing whether the towers would fall.  And then they did.  This retelling of that day is recounted by the words of people who were there.  Who were a part of history.   Who lived to tell.  Who talked to their loved ones one final time.  Who knew what the likely outcome was going to be.  Even when you know how the story ends, you can’t help but be riveted by this oral perspective.
