September 11, 2001 began as an ordinary day. But in less than two hours' time, this ordinary day was transformed as 19 terrorists boarded and hijacked four airplanes to attack America. Nearly 3,000 people were killed when the planes were flown into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon near Washington, DC and when United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania's countryside.
Flight 93 National Memorial is a place to learn about the forty passengers and crew of Flight 93 whose actions thwarted the hijackers' plan to fly this plane to a target in Washington, DC. Walk beside their final resting place and honor their extraordinary courage in fighting back against the terrorists.
Outdoor exhibits, a cell phone tour, and Park Rangers provide more information to visitors. The new Visitors Center includes 10 interactive display exhibits detailing the story of Flight 93 and the heroic actions of the passengers and crew.
