Evan Fairbanks captured some of the most remarkable and poignant footage of any bystander with a video camera on September 11, 2001. With his camera pointed at the smoldering North Tower, Fairbanks caught the moment when the second plane struck the World Trade Center.

He also recorded the stoic expressions of a group of firemen walking toward the burning buildings. Sadly, none of those men—members of Squad 288/Hazmat 1 out of Maspeth, Queens—would make it out alive.
