9780060099091: Among the Heroes: United Flight 93 and the Passengers and Crew Who Fought Back

The events of September 11th 2001 are etched on the minds of people all over the globe. This book examines the fate of Flight 93. Believed to be heading for Washington DC, the plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania miles away from its target. Jere Longman, a New York Times journalist, reconstructs the story of the flight on a technical level, as well as on a personal level, profiling the passengers, the captain, the co-pilots and the hijackers. It pays special tribute to four men in particular: Mark Bingham, Thomas Burnett, Jeremy Glick and Todd Beamer. From calls made to their loved ones, we know that these men had learned of the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon and had formed a plan to overcome the terrorists to prevent another such disaster. Bringing together all available material, including interviews with eye witnesses, phone calls, the captain's tape and the plane's black box, Longman reveals what went on aboard the fated plane.

Of the four horrific hijackings on September 11, Flight 93 resonates as one of epic resistance.At a time when the United States appeared defenseless against an unfamiliar foe, the gallant passengers and crew of Flight 93 provided for many Americans a measure of victory in the midst of unthinkable defeat. Together, they seemingly accomplished what all the security guards and soldiers, military pilots and government officials, could not -- they thwarted the terrorists, sacrificing their own lives so that others might live.The culmination of hundreds of interviews with family members and months of investigation, Among the Heroes is the definitive story of the courageous men and women aboard Flight 93, and of the day that forever changed the way Americans view the world and themselves.
