The parks were jammed after the attacks and thick billows of smoke were seen over Lower Manhattan for hours and people were either in tears, silent or removed their hats as a sign of respect. See more »
At one point, a radar screen shows "CLE" and an airport diagram, meaning Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. The runway diagram is incorrect for the airport; it shows a triangle, while Hopkins Airport's runways form a slanted "T" shape. See more »

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.
