Pentagon first response photographs
These photographs, taken by firefighter Jon Culberson, are some of the first images of the Pentagon shortly after the terrorist attack. Context:
When terrorists crashed a passenger jet into the Pentagon, the impact ignited a massive fire. Following standard protocol, the firefighters at the Pentagon helipad firehouse immediately called for backup from the nearby Fort Myer fire station. Jon Culberson, a firefighter on the first truck to arrive on the scene, was carrying a pocket camera and took these amazing images just minutes after the crash.
