Flight crew log
Flight crew log
- 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. Lorraine Bay was among the forty-four people killed when Flight 93 crashed outside Shanksville, PA.
- Lorraine Bay recorded each flight she flew and emergency contact information in her logbook
- The fourth plane to be hijacked on September 11 was United Airlines Flight 93. The plane, delayed on the runway, took off at 8:45, about five minutes before American Airlines Flight 11 was crashed into the World Trade Center. After hearing by phone the fate of the other hijacked planes, a number of passengers on Flight 93 organized and stormed the cockpit of the airplane. Ultimately the Boeing 757 crashed in an open field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, killing all 33 passengers, four hijackers, and seven crew members (including Bay), but sparing what officials believe was another intended target in Washington, D.C.
