With the 9/11 Anniversary just a day away there will be numerous stories and memories in the media over the upcoming days.
Today we read about the F-16 pilot who was told to intercept Flight 93 as it was heading seemingly straight to Washington. With no missiles on board the only way she would be able to bring down that flight, on its suicide mission, was to fly straight into it. The only reason she is here alive today is that the passengers of Flight 93 brought down the plane in Pennslyvania to stop more severe carnage.
“The real heroes are the passengers on Flight 93 who were willing to sacrifice themselves,” Penney the F-16 pilot says. “I was just an accidental witness to history.”
There is a film about Flight 93 which even though you’ll know the storyline still has enough depth to make it an interesting watch. Another interesting perspective of 9/11 comes from a retired New York policeman who writes about what he saw on that day and how he fears another attack.
