On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 the sky was clear and blue as far as Eddie Hitt could see from over 50,000 feet in the air.
Hitt, a Fed Ex pilot from Yazoo City, was flying to Hartford, Conn. from Memphis, Tenn. when the plane’s captain noticed something strange on the horizon.
“We could see the smoke coming out of the World Trade Center,” Hitt said. “At the time we didn’t think it was anything to be alarmed about. I remember the captain saying it was probably an electrical fire. We never dreamed it was an airplane.”-------for the rest of the story see The Yazoo Herald printed edition or subscribe to the Digital Edition.----------
