SHANKSVILLE, Pa - As we approach the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the first known video showing the smoke cloud of the United Airlines Flight 93 crash has surfaced.
It was taken just minutes after the flight crashed into a Pennsylvania field, by a man who lived a few miles away.
Click on the attached video player, and you'll hear the voice of that man, calmly narrating what he sees.
The man you hear is now deceased, and his family wishes to remain anonymous.
The flight, headed to San Francisco from Newark, N.J., was hijacked by terrorists. It’s believed they were planning to crash the plane into the United States Capitol in Washington D.C., but passengers and crew tried to overtake the terrorists.
During their attempt, the plane crashed into the Pennsylvania field, killing all aboard.
