- Todd Beamer; Flight 93 passenger
Four planes were hijacked, with two being flown into the North and South World Trade Center towers, which no longer stand. The site became known as Ground Zero, and there is now a memorial to those who lost their lives that day. A third plane flew into the pentagon, where there is a memorial. The fourth plane, suspected to be heading to Washington DC, crashed in Stony Creek Township about two hours south of Slippery Rock. The passengers and crew of Flight 93 fought back against the hijackers, knowing they would not survive. The memorial for Flight 93 is located in Stoystown, PA at the site of the crash.
