I am local on the scene here. I live in Hampton across the river from VB and Norfolk. The local news has featured several local people who were on the
scene before rescue and fire or the Navy. One mans interview showed his video just a few minutes after the crash.
In the interview he said, and I loosely quote, " It was surreal. The plane was going so slow. When it hit it made no noise." I dont know about the
no noise part, maybe the sound traveled away from him somehow, but the so slow part was interesting. Another reason this cannot be compared to the
Trade Center or Pentagon, was the speed. This plane was basically stalled and just sort of fell down on its belly.
More interviews and local footage from people on the street show amazing cooperation between rescue and neighbors helping neighbors. It truly was the
best of the beach as far as our citizens.
