Did You Know?


Khalid Abdalla claimed that he accepted the part of lead hijacker Ziad Jarrah partly because he'd previously been offered roles as fictional terrorists that he felt were offensively stereotypical. He wanted a real-life al-Qaeda terrorist to be portrayed responsibly. See more »


The aircraft is labeled UA93 on Newark's Surface Movement Radar. Air Traffic Control uses ICAO codes, so the label should be UAL93. The scenes at Boston and New York centers show the correct code. See more »

great movie
16 June 2007 | by kairinglerSee all my reviews

i was thoroughly impressed with paul greengrass's latest effort united 93 , it tells an effective story of what happened on 9/11/01, i remember what i was doing on that day, do you? anyway. as most disaster movies go, it takes a little time to get the story going but once the story get's going , this movie is very interesting , and a kick ass ride all the way to the conclusion. i particularly liked the scenes at the air traffic controller locations, and the military command center,, and the fact that the 2 agencies,, being the military and the FAA couldn't seem to co-operate, the president was the only one in authority to say whether the military could have shot down the planes. the 4th plane went down near shanksville, pa, not far from where i used to grow up, this movie pays tribute to all of the passengers and crew of flight 93. i recently went to the memorial near Shanksville for flight 93 , they plan to have a full memorial by 2012, i think the lady said they still need 158 million yet, from the park service, interesting note , the lady that did the little tour there, said that there were U.S. fighters 60 miles from flight 93,, and the plane was following the p.a. turnpike west. not mentioned in the movie, my cousin tells me that he knows of people that worked at the mill behind where flight 93 went down, and are said to have seen the plane in a fireball upside down,, then crashing, of course suggesting that the military shot the plane down,, anyways, i have some camcorder footage of the memorial, and will try to get it up on my my space for those to see if anyone is interested. i went there on 7-10-07, for anyone planning to go , you can't get to where the plane went down,, that area is only for relatives, but when they get the concrete walkway in , in a few years, the lady said you will be able to go right there, she also said the plane , believe it or not was 3/4 of the way into the ground after it crashed,, it crashed at 560 miles an hour she also said.
