Flight 93 Families

By  | 

Two Kentucky families who lost relatives in the September Eleventh terrorist attacks said they plan to see a new film that documents the hijacking of United Flight 93.

John and Anna Yancey's daughter-in-law, Vicki Yancey, was a passenger on the plane that crashed into the Pentagon. But they said the personal tragedy won't keep them from watching "United 93," which opens in theaters today.

John Yancey says everyone needs to be reminded that tragedies like 9-11 happen.

United Flight 93 was going to San Francisco from Newark, New Jersey, when the hijackers took over, probably with the goal of crashing the plane into the White House or the Capitol. Instead, the plane went down in Pennsylvania. All 33 passengers, seven crew members and four hijackers were killed.

Mary O'Doherty of Louisville, whose sister-in-law was killed on 9-11, also says she has no objection to a movie about the tragic events.
