The morning of Sept. 11, 2001 will forever remain in the history books. It was the day that stood still. Two airplanes were own into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. A third, into the Pentagon located in Arlington, Virginia, headquarters to the Department of Defense. And the fourth plane crashed in an empty field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Four hijackers overpowered the crew of Flight 93 and took control of the plane, changing its original course to San Francisco, Calif. back around towards Washington D.C. After learning of the other attacks, the passengers of Flight 93 attempted to retake control of the plane. Thirty-three passengers and seven crew members died when the plane was forced into a nose-dive.
Every year, their families gather at the crash site to honor their family members, along with residents of Shanksville who saw the plane go down.
