American Airlines Flight 11 ( a Boeing 767-223) crashed into the North Tower and  United Airlines Flight 175, (a Boeing 767-222) crashed into the South Tower , which subsequently collapsed at 9:59 am.  At 10:28 am , the North Tower collapsed. Later that day, 7 World Trade Center also collapsed, while the four remaining buildings in the WTC plaza also sustained heavy damage from debris and were ultimately demolished.
