On September 11, 2001, the United States came under attack when three commercial airlines were hijacked and used to strike the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. A fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed into a grassy field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Because of the actions of the 40 passengers and crew aboard Flight 93, the terrorists’ planned attack on the nation’s capital was thwarted. The Memorial is a tribute to the passengers and crew of Flight 93 and a place to explore this inspiring story. The visit is self-guided with outdoor exhibit panels and cell phone tour.
A Visitor Center and Learning Center will open in September 2015. With the opening of these two new facilities that offer exhibits and educational programs, the visitor experience will change at Flight 93 National Memorial. All visitors are encouraged to plan their visit in advance at www.nps.gov/flni.
Flight 93 National Memorial is one of five national parks in the Laurel Highlands region.
