Like the rest of the nation, Alaska felt the shock of the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Air traffic halted. A recreational pilot in the interior found himself suddenly escorted by military fighter jets. A cargo jet headed to Alaska from Korea was diverted to Whitehorse. It was a Tuesday, and Talk of Alaska went on the air as usual, even on a day unlike any other.
Join the conversation about 9/11 and how Alaska and Alaskans have changed in the last six years.
