"Let's Roll" Flight 93 – Remembered

It has been 16 years since that horrible day with the loss of humanity. The victims are remember today from that horrendous act. They were the only flight to fight back versus evil. Today is my part in remembering a field in Shanksville, PA. A field that was last site to get its memorial completed due to funding. Granted the field is not part of a major city or a military facility, however it too should not be forgotten on this day.

On 11 Sept after 3 planes crashed into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, two Andrews AFB F-16's took off to intercept the 4th highjacked airliner.

The pilots as they geared up the squadron CO, Col. Marc Sasseville told his wingman,  Lt. Heather Penney, "I'm going for the cockpit".

"I'll take the tail" responded Penny.

As they took off that morning both knew that if they intercepted the plane, one or both of them would not be returning.

Neither of their F-16's carried live ammunition or missiles.

To stop the airliner, they were going to have to smash their aircraft into the airliner.


DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent
