Flight 93 National Memorial
A common field one day. A field of honor forever.
On Tuesday morning, 11 September 2001, the U.S. came under attack when four commercial airliners were hijacked and used to strike targets on the ground. Nearly 3000 people tragically lost their lives. Because of the actions of the 40 passengers and crew aboard one of the planes, Flight 93, the attack on the US Capitol was thwarted. - NPS
