Trivia

In the Stephen King novel Doctor Sleep, he has a character born on the moment of 9/11. He writes America will become a much more suspicious nation following 9/11. He also writes a paranormal group (psychic vampires) called The True Knot live off the steam (emotions) produced by people during 9/11. One of them even has a premonition of 9/11. See more »

Goofs

When flight 93 is going nose down, and you can see the ground approaching through the cockpit wind shield, the flight instruments (most notably the horizontal situation indicators and attitude indicators) show business as usual - that is, the plane is flying more or less horizontally, which doesn't correspond with the fact that they are about to crash.

well made TV movie of intense real life drama
11 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

It's September 11, 2001. United Airlines Flight 93 departs from Newark International Airport on its way to San Francisco. Almost at the same time, the first plane is crashed into the World Trade Center. Four hijackers take over United 93 as confusion reins back in the air and on the ground. The passengers calling from the plane surmises the hijackers' plan and try to retake the aircraft.

It's a made-for-TV movie on the A&E Network. It's relatively well-made movie with a few recognizable faces among the crowd. It is a lower level of production than United 93. The real life and death struggle still resonates. The battle for the plane is still intense despite the foregone conclusion. The calls home are as heart wrenching as ever. The intense real drama has not been diminished by this movie production.
