From: New Zealand
I was packing a house up in Hammersmith, London when the client, who had gone out for a bit, rushed in the door and hurredly turned on the telly.I remember him saying "A plane has flown into the World Trade Centre!" We sat down and watched it all unfold for the rest of the day. I had to apologise to my boss for getting bugger all done but he didn't mind. I was living out in Northfields which is fairly close to the Heathrow airport approach path you could see the planes being diverted away from the city,it was almost eerily quiet that evening. My mum back in NZ rang me that night asking when I was coming home, I told her as I'd already lived through an IRA bomb in Ealing that I felt safe,lol.
