1962 The Beatles recorded their first single, Love Me Do

2001 In a highly coordinated attack, terrorists hijack four US passenger airliners, flying two into the World Trade Center towers in New York and one into the Pentagon. The fourth airliner, headed toward Washington and likely to strike the White House or Capitol, crashed just over 100 miles away in Pennsylvania after passengers storm the cockpit and overtake the hijackers.
