In a video shot aboard Air Force One as it was on its way from the G20 Summit in Turkey to the APEC Summit in the Philippines, the camera flashed to an flight tracking map showing the jet’s location and previous route.

Just over 350 never-before-seen images of Vice President Dick Cheney on 9/11 have been released by the National Archives. They span the entire day, from him seeing the twin towers burning on a tiny TV in his office, to leaving to “an undisclosed location” (aka Camp David) that evening.
