Abstract/Artist Statement

Through research and personal interviews this case study examines the tragedy of United Airlines, Flight 93, the only terrorist attempt that was unsuccessful. The plane, en route to San Francisco was hijacked by terrorists, but overtaken by brave crew members and passengers who took a stand against terrorism. Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the final resting place of the victims of Flight 93, is an old community, a township of only 245 people. This study shows how the community came together and helped a nation mourn. It gives a detailed account of the last moments of the horrific flight, the aftermath that was created and the public relations effort by some to ensure the dedication of a memorial.
