Flight 93 National Memorial

In southwestern Pennsylvania, north of Shanksville.

 

A memorial to commemorate the passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93 is planned for this site. On the morning of September 11, 2001, Flight 93 took off from Newark International Airport bound for San Francisco. When it neared Cleveland, hijackers on board commandeered the plane and piloted it into an about turn, heading in the direction of Washington, DC. Passengers and crew members on board are believed to have acted together to crash-land the plane in a remote field in rural Pennsylvania before it reached the capital. The crash site was established as a national memorial on September 24, 2002.
