A movie based on true events of September 11, 2001 showcases the hijacking of one of four airplanes which was not able to hit its target. The inspirational movie states the courageous acts of the passengers when they knew that this was a suicidal mission and the end can be lot more disastrous if they could not take extreme measures in the current time of event. The movie is influential in its whole sense of filming as the real events were perceived and then implemented in a movie.
The film opens early on the morning of September 11, 2001, when the hijackers were busy in their work and them they left for Newark International Airport. At the airport passengers board United Airlines Flight 93 along with the hijackers. This flight delayed due to the traffic but the other three flights which were later hijacked take off. In the beginning, first the American Airline Flight 11 has crashes the North Tower of the World Trade Centre. The air trafiic controllers who were monitoring the all the current flights were unaware of that attack. They just knew that American Flight 11 has taken a southern turn towards New York City. They tried to make sense of it that what happens to that flight and what make it to turn New York City. During this CNN internationaly telecast the smoke of World Trade Centre which than makes it clear and open to them that they are dealing with Hijacking. Soon they realized that the other flight is also hijached which is United Airline Flight 175. The Air traffic controllers alert the U.S Air Force but they were in confusion whether to shoot all the hijacked flights or not. Soon they saw that another flight 175 crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Centre. This created a great influence on the people, air traffic controllers and air force. The air traffic controllers were unable to control the situtaion as the hijackers were attacking one after the other. On the other hand the air force got the authority to take actions against the hijackers but their efforts are hampered by limited resources and restrictive procedures. The terrorists sitting in the Flight United 93 came to know that planes has crashed the World Trade Centre, they decided to hijack the United 93. One out of four hijackers harassed the passengers by assembling a fake bomb. The other three went into the cockpit and overpower the pilots. They put a photo of their target and by this time they came to know that Flight 77 has crushed The Pentagon. The attack on the Pentagon made the Air traffic controllers to shut down all airspace in the United States and ground every single flight because they were not enough to fight and respond to the hijackers.
