18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center. Today, families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2000 people died. Remembering Those Lost 18 Years Ago on 9/11

“Airplanes took aim”? How does that work?

Imagine if they covered Pearl Harbor this way


“On December 7, 1941, airplanes took aim and seriously damaged the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor."

You point a plane or car at a target and head for it. That's an example of "taking aim". You know, like when James Fields took aim at a group of protestors in Charlottesville.
