Do you mean literally in zal as opposed to in bed, as I was in zal at the time as well.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Yes, literally. I went to mikvah, while everyone watched from the window.

I was in Mesivta. Came to the dining room after Shacharis and heard the radio blasting from the kitchen which was weird, but before I had a chance to think about it one of the Bochurim (who was not known to be bright) pounced on me and said that a plane crashed into the twin towers. I was like "yeah right" just as another Bochur said that another plane crashed into the Pentagon. I thought the second Bochur was making fun of the first one but then the radio finally filtered in and i listned in horror together with the rest of the boys as the first tower fell (I have to admit the thought crossing my mind at the time was, what will the skyline look like with only one twin tower). A second before Shiur a Bochur came running down the hall screaming the second tower fell. Now the R"Y was giving a Shiur as if nothing happened, I doubt there was a Bochur in the class who heard a word.
3 weeks later I took a flight home for Succos, there were 7 people on the plane: Me, another Bochur, some business man, a flight attendant, air marshal, pilot and co-pilot. As we were coming in for landing in LGA we flew along the island of Manhattan, I used to love coming in from that direction as the view of Manhattan is amazing. This time we saw all the smoke coming from where the towers were.

Boy, its a young crowd here....

I was 20 at the time, learning in Israel... Watched it unfold on (I assume) the only TV in Bais Yisroel.

i was in 8th grade at the time, in ysv (for all those mentioning yeshivas) and my rebbe came in and said there had been a gr8 tragedy and a plane hit the twin towers. of course we didnt believe him and then the princibal came in said another plane hit, and a few min later said one building fell and then another,

we didnt fully understand the severity of it all, until i got home and i was too glued to the tv all night and i rememeber seeing guliani speaking to the press.

though @sky it hit me much later on, but it really hit me at my brothers wedding when my sister in law walked down with her mother....and her brother, bec her father was killed in the attack,
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

Was in London. Had a flight back to NYC and from there one onto GYE to run high-holiday services there.
Needless to say, I wasn't able to catch my flight back to NYC and, in turn, my flight from NYC-GYE.
(Ultimately United refunded me my way nack from LHR-NYC).
A new trip was arranged from LHR-MAD-UIO-GYE to get there on time for R"H.
I remember davening shachris in UIO and some airport personnel almost ripped out my tefillin off my head saying I had some weird "devices" on...
Also on my UIO-GYE flight I sat next to two Arabs and, to add to my nervousness, the flight was as turbulent as ever.. One of the arabs slowly pulled out a handwatch from his shirt pocket as the plane was running for takeoff, looked at it and put it back into his pocket.. My head started playing all kinds of movies...
Yes, everyone was terrified as the new were fresh..

Was just after my sheva brochos, and although I wasn't in the USA, I knew of the twin tower and what it meant to the americans.

I was thinking:"Hell, this means a third world war"...
