At about 10:03 a.m., a black crater bloomed in the soft earth of a field 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. Chicago Tribune, September 30 2001
Flight 93 crashed around 10:03 a.m. in western Pennsylvania, apparently after passengers fought with the hijackers. By then, the nation's capital was secure. The Post Standard, September 20 2001
Jefferson hung up at 10 a.m. EST, realizing that the plane had gone down. Officials said it crashed at 9:58 a.m. http://www.post-gazette.com/headlines/20010916phonecallnat3p3.asp
Hoping to dispel rumors that United Airlines Flight 93 might have been shot down by military aircraft, the FBI Saturday said that two other planes were in the area but had nothing to do with the hijacked flight crashing in western Pennsylvania.
The FBI said that a civilian business jet flying to Johnstown was within 20 miles of the low-flying airliner, but at an altitude of 37,000 feet.
That plane was asked to descend to 5,000 feet -- an unusual maneuver -- to help locate the crash site for responding emergency crews.
The FBI said that is probably why some witnesses say they saw another plane in the sky shortly after Flight 93 crashed at 10:10 a.m. Tuesday in a grassy field near Shanksville, about 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/news/961654/detail.html
The jet reportedly went down at approximately 10:20 a.m. near Indian Lake in Buckstown, Somerset County. It is approximately eight miles from Jennerstown, near Route 30. Click here for a map of the area. http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/news/956356/detail.html
10:02 a.m.: After a review of radar tapes, a radar signal is detected near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. http://archives.cnn.com/2001/US/09/16/inv.flat.foot/index.html
Johnstown, Pa., airport director Joe McKelvey called 911 as Flight 93 passed overhead. The plane kept going lower and there was no radio contact.
