ALBUQUERQUE, NM – 20 years later and the emotions are still raw. An Albuquerque man witnessed the tragedy of 9/11 while on a flight himself. He saw – from the air – the plane that would later hit the first tower. Then he heard the explosion.

“It was the plane,” said Roberto Vasquez. “It was coming right at us and our plane made a jerky, really fast turn and then I heard an explosion and I woke my wife up and said, ‘We just had a near-miss with a plane I think.’ “
