Flight crew log


Description: This collection of flight attendant Lorraine Bay's artifacts recovered from the wreckage of United Airlines Flight 93 includes a personal logbook and an in-flight procedures manual.

Context: The crew of Flight 93 gathered on the morning of September 11, an hour before the scheduled departure, for a routine meeting to discuss the flight. In addition to reviewing the flight plan and the passenger manifest, the flight attendants decided which section of the plane they would service during the flight. Lorraine Bay, a veteran flight attendant with 37 years of experience, would be working in first class. Bay was among the seven crew members and 33 passengers killed when Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
