September 11: 20 Years Later

September 11 - 20 years later

At 10:03 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, Flight 93 plowed into a field in Stonycreek Township, Somerset County, killing 40 passengers and crew members, as well as the four terrorists on board. Overall, Pennsylvania lost at least 30 people that day.

Twenty years later, WITF aims to find unique stories to tell to mark the milestone anniversary.

WITF Multimedia News Director Tim Lambert was a young radio journalist on Sept. 11, 2001. That night, he received a phone message from his father: Flight 93 had crashed on land that Tim owned. This special episode of the NPR Politics Podcast tells the story of that 20-year journey, from the earliest days until now.
