Movie propaganda

On 11 September 2001 four planes were hijacked. Three of them reached their target. This is the story of the fourth.

United 93 (Flight 93) begins on a normal September morning at Newark airport. Crew members prepare for a routine commuter flight to San Francisco. They make safety checks, assign tasks, fuel the plane. Passengers arrive, check in, make last minute calls to colleagues and families before boarding the plane. As the cabin doors are hermetically sealed they all believe that everything is normal. That they are safe from the dangers of a turbulent world. But sitting in four first class seats right next to them is an Al Qaeda cell.

And so as the hijack unfolds, the film moves between the passengers and crew in the air and civilian and military air traffic controllers on the ground as each tries desperately to avert the flight's progress towards the Capitol Building in the heart of Washington DC.

United 93 (Flight 93) will take us through the events of 9/11 as they happen in real time - all the confusion, violence, courage and endurance of a day that changed our lives forever.

Theatrical report

The thing that stands out most about the events of 11 September 2001 is not that a plane got hijacked and the passengers and crew fought back but that three planes got hijacked and the passengers and crew did nothing.
