On Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, terrorists from the terrorist group Al-Qaeda attacked both buildings of the World Trade Center in New York City, New York, attacked the Pentagon in Washington, District of Columbia, and hijacked United Airlines Flight 93.
Brave men and women passengers and crew members aboard hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 fought the terrorist hijackers and prevented another attack on the United States of America.
The United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania killing all of the passengers and crew members on board the passenger plane.
