There was no shutdown, other than in NY city.

Planes only stopped flying for a short time.  There is no way you noticed any effect unless you lived right beside an airport.  And the air would not have been any noticeably cleaner.

It wasn't the airplanes.

It was the lack of cars. Pardon my lack of clarity.
All government and most banking & corporate offices in downtown Toronto closed after 9/11.
The downtown core was eerily quiet, almost free of cars, and the air was much clearer than usual.
I lived there.

I didn't mean to derail the thread, but the similarity to conditions now just struck me.

I think we're in for a longer haul now, though.
