Terror Tapes Released
With the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks approaching, air force recordings from that fateful day have been released for the first time.
The recordings document the enormous confusion in the air force when the attacks occurred.
The tapes were made inside a bunker in the north of New York state, which is the United States military's north-east command centre
The recordings show the military kept getting information too late.
Because the terrorists had turned off the plane's tracking beacons neither the air force or the Federal Aviation Authority knew where the planes were, or even whether they were still in the air.
