The terrorist hijacking of United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, was only part of a coordinated effort to make surprise attacks on American soil. Unfortunately, the terrorists succeeded in crashing the three other airplanes into their targets—two at the World Trade Center in New York City and the third at the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. When it came to Flight 93, however, the terrorists failed because the passengers and crew bravely intervened and fought back right on the plane. As a result of their courage and quick thinking, Flight 93 never made it to its destination, which was apparently Washington, D.C.
Located on the very same Pennsylvania field where the plane crashed, Flight 93 National Memorial was designed and built to honor the airline's crew and passengers and provide information to the public about the events surrounding their heroic act. Even though the crew and passengers died that tragic day, this national park keeps their memory alive. This handsome, collectible lapel pin features an illustration of the Wall of Names etched in blue against a gleaming silver background.
