Product Description:

At the time of the now-historic events of September 11th, 2001, around 4,836 commercial and private aircrafts were flying over the US, with only 14 fighter planes positioned to act as the country's air defense. Through personal accounts with fighter pilots, air defense officials, Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, Lynne Cheney, and others responsible for the president's safety, CLEAR THE SKIES examines how Air Traffic Control responded to an unprecedented command to "clear the skies" of all non-military aircraft in under three hours.

Description by Warner Home Video:

The very idea of the United States being attacked by air was unimaginable and unexpected. On the morning of September 11, 2001, 14 fighter planes, dispersed among seven bases, were responsible for the country's mainland air defense; four alone responsible for the entire North East. At 9:44 a.m. an order was given that had never been attempted before, to go to Condition Air Traffic Control Zero - to clear the skies of all non-military aircraft. At that time, roughly 4,836 commercial and private planes were flying over the United States and in less than three hours the clear the skies order was fully carried out.
This is the story of how, minute-by-minute, America's air defense as well as those responsible for the President's and other government officials' safety responded when the horrific events of 9/11 unfolded. Discover intriguing personal accounts from this unforgettable day as fighter pilots, air defense officials, Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, Lynne Cheney and those who were with the President at key moments tell their stories.
