Eye on Travel — 20th Anniversary of 9/11 — September 11, 2021

Locations in this article:  New York City, NY

This week is a special edition of Eye on Travel — from New York on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. We look back on where we were, where we’ve been and where we’re going in the wake of one of America’s darkest days. Peter will be talking to David Pekoske, the administrator of the TSA, to Garrett Graff, author of an amazing oral history of 9/11, The Only Plane in the Sky. And to Ben Sliney, the FAA official who made the unprecedented decision to put every plane in the air…on the ground in the immediate wake of the attacks. We’ll also remember that day with Claude Elliott, former mayor of Gander in Newfoundland and the remarkable story of what happened there on 9/11. And we’ll talk security with Scott McCartney of The Wall Street Journal. There’s all this and more on the special 9/11 edition of Eye on Travel.
