Remembering Flight 93

Tonight, Discovery Channel aired The Flight that Fought Back, a documentary that pieces together what happened on United Flight 93.

On September 11, 2001, Flight 93 took off from Newark bound for San Francisco. Terrorists seized the plane. From various phone calls, the passengers came to know what happened to the other flights on 9/11 and decided to try to regain control of the plane. In the end, the terrorists crashed the plane just outside Shanksville, Pennsylvania as the passengers broke into the cockpit.

A National Memorial is being planned to honor the courage of those on Flight 93.

UPDATE: Design concept for the memorial.
