A third plane was crashed into the Pentagon.  The plane caused a partial collapse of the building.

The fourth plane was heading to Washington, but crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. Passengers went to great strides to stop the hijackers.  The hijackers were trying to crash that plane into the White House.
