A New Aerial View Of 9/11

It's been almost 10 years since the Sept. 11 attacks. And just when you think you've seen it all, a new perspective emerges. According to The Associated Press, the photos were taken from a police helicopter just moments after the attack.

The images were obtained by ABC after it filed a Freedom of Information Act request last year with the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
