Flight 93 - The Final Hours

I stayed up quite late last night watching

Flight 93 - A&E Movie.

John J. Miller

It was about "Flight 93" and the movie was about the final hours of those aboard the United Airlines flight from Newark to San Francisco. This 4th airplane was thought to have its destination, by terrorists, toward the White House or the Capitol.

It brought back horrifying memories of the day when America was attacked (September 2001) by terrorist.

Please remind me dear Lady, was this the plane where the passengers fought back? I seem to recall it was. I guess this is one of those reasons I don't like the "defenseless skies" as we have it. But that is a rant for another day.
I am an ex New Yorker (from the Bronx) and it seemed like an attack on my living room, or as if they hit my grandmother's home or something. It seems to me that we went off the beaten track in terms of really getting those who were actually involved, I won't second guess the government too much, they may have more info they feel they cannot release, but it really seems that we have a rather different adgenda these days.
My thoughts go out to the families of those who lost loved ones in those attacks, my heart is heavy with the thought and my deepest wishes for them and those they lost.
Many hugs to thee Dear Lady.

Yes it was.

Some on board had cell phones and were communicating with loved ones, as they went through their horrible ordeal. The family members didn't want their loved ones know that the Twin Tower had already been attacked. After realizing that the same fate was in store for that flight, they told their loved ones to take matters into their own hands. It was just awful!

There was a 2nd movie right after that one. It was about the 1st plane that hit the tower. It was a movie filled with much drama, the kind of drama which is true. There were times when I thought I was watching the kind of movie where all the heroes survive. I forgot for a moment that the outcome would be horrific.

Yes, I can surely see how you would feel about it, having had that place as your hometown!

I'm glad they made those movies, because I was starting to forget, and that's one thing we should NEVER do!

I sure hope they show them again, they are worth seeing!

I watched it too. It brought back a lot of memories. My father worked at the WTC that fateful date. He wrote about it too. I guess he had to get it out of his head. I posted it in my LJ

It sure did, didn't it?! Did you watch both of the movies?

I'm so glad I got to watch them, and I feel everybody else should, too. It's an dreadful occurrence in America's history that should never be forgotten.

How appalling that your father was there on that horrible day! I'll go to the link and read it with much interest.
Hugs Sweety Pie!

I didn't see it. Don't know if I would have wanted to or not either. For example, I have never been to the Oklahoma City bombing memorial, just cant go yet.

Was the movie done well?

There were two of them and they were excellent! The impact they produced in me last night, are still felt today. The families of the victims are what totally broke my heart.

You must watch them!
Hugs Sweety Pie!

Where were you?

I had just gotten up. It was my first week of university. I went left my dorm to go to the quade lounge and turned on the t.v. to see that. When I saw it I actually laughed..not out of humor..but out of shock. When something really shocking happens I laugh...kind of like. "they have to be kidding me..this really didn't happen?" Or when I'm really nervous I'll laugh. That one shocked me. I thought it was some sort of joke or something...I didn't sink in that it was real for about a minute or two.

Was at work. We had a small TV on. I walked in just in time to see the 2nd plane hit the tower. The reactions of my co-workers is something I'll never forget.

It's still hard to believe that something so horrible like that happened.

How I wish it had only of been a horror film, up for an Academy Award!

I saw the Flight 93 movie on A & E. I thought it was well done, and probably something people need to see. It caused a massive change in how we now carry out our normal lives. Life will never be the same for us. People need to remember.

Yes, people should see these movies, because we somehow forget things, and this is one evil event that must never be forgotten.
Hugs my friend!

now if the airlines would allow CCW holders to fly armed, shit like this would never happen!

Hopefully someday, those who make the rules will see the light.
