Flight 93 & Quecreek Mine Rescue

Thursday, November 10, 2022


11:15-11:45 AM visit the Flight 93 Memorial Chapel, which was dedicated, on the first anniversary of 9/11 to honor God and the memory of the 40 heroes of Flight 93.  In the chapel you see many moving mementos donated by family members and others who wish to honor the heroes.   Hearts are touched as you visit the chapel and the Flight 93 Crew Monument in the garden area behind the chapel.  Donated by United Airlines Flight Attendants Cause Foundation, the monument entitled “Forever in Our Hearts” is a 16-ton black granite obelisk. 

12:15-1:30 PM lunch at Our Coal Miners Diner is a plated meal of hot roast beef or hot turkey sandwich, mashed potatoes/gravy, beverage and dessert OR grilled chicken salad w/roll, beverage & dessert.  Guests will choose that morning.

1:45-3:15 PM spirits will soar as you visit the Quecreek Mine Rescue site where, on July 28th, 2002 nine miners were miraculously rescued from 240 feet beneath the earth in a farmer’s field just outside of Somerset.  Hear of the events from the time the accident occurred until the last miner was brought up. The rescue site has been developed into a beautiful garden and you will see the actual rescue capsule, the broken drill bit and many more artifacts from the Quecreek rescue and mining in general in the Educational Visitor Center.

3:45-5:45 PM pay your respects at the Flight 93 National Memorial including both the Memorial Plaza with the Wall of Names of the Heroes of Flight 93 and the Visitor Center.  The exhibits in the Visitor Center bring back poignant memories as well as providing new insight into the events and the heroes of Flight 93.  Phase 3 of the National Memorial, “The Tower of Voices,” was completed. The 93-foot-tall tower housing 40 wind chimes  provides harmonious sounds reminding us of the 40 Heroes who came together and gave their lives in order to save this flight from reaching its intended target. NOTE: the chimes are heard based on wind speed.  Each tour member receives a commemorative magnet “Remember the Heroes of Flight 93.”
