One of the more haunting scenes as early as the afternoon of September 11, 2001 (this photo was taken the following day, Wednesday, September 12) was the absence of commercial airline traffic from our country's skies. As this photo of St. Paul's Holman Field shows, the runways were eerily empty and much of the airport was absent of activity. Things after that fateful day on our nation's east coast were never the same again.

I could ramble on and on about what I was doing on that particular day and what events are burned into my memory but this site is about striking photos. This one fits the bill.
