Pentagon 9/11 crash photos were released by the FBI on Thursday, more than 15 years after the terrorist attacks that left thousands of innocent people dead.

The FBI released a total of 27 photos that give insight into what the mood was like at the Pentagon in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, Fox News noted.

On that tragic day, the Pentagon had been targeted by terrorists who hijacked a flight with U.S. passengers aboard and flew the plane into the west side of the building.

The attack killed those on the plane as well as more than a hundred people who were working at the Pentagon.

Titled "9/11 Attacks and Investigation Images," the photos were uploaded to the FBI website — "FBI Records: The Vault" — which provides viewers with an inside look at debris left behind from the attack, rescue teams who responded to the incident, and what it looked like both inside and outside of the Pentagon following the attack.

According to the Daily Mail, the Pentagon attack that left 189 people dead also left a hole in the building that was said to be about 20 feet wide and 100 feet deep.

"I saw the marks of the plane wing on the face of the building," said Allyn E. Kilsheimer, the first structural engineer to arrive to the scene of the attack that day, according to Popular Mechanics in a 2010 article debunking consipiracy theories about the attacks. "I picked up parts of the plane with the airline markings on them. I held in my hand the tail section of the plane, and I found the black box.

"I held parts of uniforms from crew members in my hands, including body parts," he added.

The 9/11 attacks consisted of four terrorist attacks carried out by al-Qaeda — four passenger flights operated by United Airlines and American Airlines.

Two of the planes — American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 — were hijacked and flown into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center in New York City.

A third plane — American Airlines Flight 77 — was hijacked and then flown into the Pentagon, while the last plane — United Airlines Flight 93 — crashed in a field in Pennsylvania, despite being headed for Washington, at the time.

Nearly 3,000 people died and over 6,000 others were left injured following the attacks.
