Flight 93 National Memorial

A common field one day.  A field of honor forever.

On Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001, the U.S. came under attack when four commercial airliners were hijacked and used to strike targets on the ground. Nearly 3,000 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 U.S. Capitol was thwarted.

We visited the Flight 93 memorial on a bright sunny day just like the day it happened on September 11, 2001. It is a chilling and very impressive experience standing there and remembering the courage of the passengers to stop the highjacking, an attack on the White House. The memorial is full of symbolic structures and explained by volunteers on site. You really have to visit this memorial to understand how humble you can feel for the bravery that happened. Below is a small impression what you might see and experience.
