Discovery Channel salutes courage during 9/11 attacks with ‘The Flight That Fought Back’

‘The Flight That Fought Back’ is a minute-by-minute retelling of the plane’s final moments as those on board fought to regain control of the aircraft. This dramatic documentary was developed with unprecedented cooperation from United Airlines and unparalleled access to the families and friends of those on board. Discovery Channel will present the show on September 11 at 8 pm.

The documentary is based on research, comprehensive evidence, including the 9/11 Commission Report and actual voice recordings left by passengers and crew. It uses the best possible evidence available to recreate the struggle inside Flight 93, including extensive interviews with family and friends and their very personal conjectures on how their loved ones would have reacted to the situation.

The film enables viewers to better understand the events of that fateful morning and provides a deeper appreciation of the remarkable men and women aboard the plane.

“The Flight That Fought Back uses the research available to chronicle how 40 strangers determined the terrorists’ scheme and devised an action plan to counter their deadly plot - in just 30 minutes. The majority of this documentary’s content is based on personal stories from family members and direct witnesses, with dramatic reconstructions of the moments leading up to the crash,” said Raja Balasubramanian, Brand Director, Discovery Networks India.
