A Day Like No Other

On September 11, 2001, the passengers and crew of Flight 93 courageously gave their lives thwarting a planned attack on our Nation's Capital. Flight 93 National Memorial will be a permanent memorial to the heroes on that plane. The Flight 93 National Memorial project partners have been working to plan, design and develop the permanent memorial.
