"United 93" is the 2006 dramatic feature written and directed by Paul Greengrass, chronicling the events aboard 'United Airlines Flight 93',  recounting the hijacking and subsequent events on September 11, 2001 in real time:

"...on the morning of September 11, 2001, four al-Qaeda terrorists pray in a Newark, New Jersey hotel, then board 'United Airlines Flight 93', piloted by 'Captain Jason Dahl' and 'First Officer LeRoy Homer Jr.', at Newark International Airport. 

"As 'Flight 93' takes off after a slight delay, air traffic controllers determine that 'American Airlines Flight 11' has been hijacked and is heading toward New York City. 'Flight 11' crashes into the 'North Tower' of the 'World Trade Center' and 'United Airlines Flight 175' is also hijacked and heads toward New York City. Air traffic controllers learn that 'American Airlines Flight 77' has also been hijacked and watch as 'Flight 175' crashes into the 'South Tower'.

"As the hijackers make their move on Flight 93, killing pilots Dahl and Homer after they send out a frantic 'Mayday' call, the terrified passengers decide to do what they have to do..."
