On or about 9:03 AM EDT Flight 175 was crashed into the south side of the southern tower of the World Trade Center, approximately between floors 78 and 84, exploding on impact. The pilot at the time is believed to have been Marwan Alshehhi. The plane was carrying 56 passengers (including the 5 hijackers) and 9 crew members. There were no survivors.
The image of the crash was caught by live TV and was broadcast around the world. It was continually replayed in news broadcasts over the next few days, and remains one of the most horrifying and unforgettable images of that day.
The flight route designation, for future flights on the same route, was later changed from Flight 175 to Flight 1525 out of respect for those who died in the attack.
