RE: Analysis from a JHU CS Prof
ITV is showing some pretty good coverage in the UK. First plane strike, second plane strike from several angles, I'm not sure there's video coverage of the Pentagon collision. -----Original Message----- From: David Howe [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Wednesday, September 12, 2001 12:33 PM To: Email List: nanog Subject: Re: Analysis from a JHU CS Prof > It takes quite a bit more than you would expect.

I hadn't seen *any* footage at that point - I am in the UK and my normal working day doesn't include TV sets (and of course streaming video reached saturation and vanished long before we even knew anything was happening over here) - and come to think of it, I *still* haven't seen any footage of the pentagon attack. UK coverage seems limited to the second plane strike, collapse, talking heads, rinse & repeat.....
