Flight 93: The Story, the Aftermath, and the Legacy of American Courage on 9/11 may be one of the most complete accounts of the hijacking of United Flight 93. That was the one plane taken over by terrorists that didn’t reach its final destination.

The plane crashed in a rural area of Somerset County, Pennsylvania while passengers struggled to gain control from the hijackers. The passengers had already learned during cell phone calls with family members that terrorists had crashed three other aircraft in New York and Washington.

As part of WITF’s 9/11:20 Years Later programming this week, the book’s author, Tom McMillan joins us on Smart Talk.
