September 2001 - United Airlines 93
United Airlines 93 departed New York-Newark for San Francisco at 08:01.
The aircraft was hijacked by four terrorists. The hijackers took over
control, reportedly switched off the transponder and changed course
to, probably, Washington. At 09:35, near Cleveland, the aircraft changed
course to the South and later (09:45) Southwest at FL350. At 10:10 the
aircraft crashed out of control in a field near Somerset, PA. The hijackers
possibly had the intention to crash the plane into Air Force One, Camp
David or perhaps Washington.
The aircraft probably crashed following passenger attempts to take
down the hijackers.
