Brief story: When an air traffic control worker hears a suspicious message from American Airlines Flight 11, the alert quickly spreads to NORAD and National Air Traffic Control Center in Virginia. On United Airlines Flight 93, several men with Middle-East origins are nervous and anxiously wait for its flight to depart from New Ark. 45 minutes after the scheduled departure time, Flight 93 is finally given a go to take off. Even though other men are ready to take the cockpit, the man in suit shows hesitation and attempts to pull off their plans.
The differences between Flight 93 and United 93 are obvious. Flight 93 focuses its camera on individual passengers on board the flight and their families. Soon after the plane takes off, the hijackers make their move. On the other hand, United 93 randomizes scenes from Boston Air Traffic Control Center, National Air Traffic Control Center (Herndon, VA) and Northeast Air Defense (Rome, NY) for the first 50 minutes of the show time. United 93 depicts fear and confusion after American Airlines Flight 11 and shows how the nation is shocked by the crashes of the hijacked planes. United 93 never shows the conversation between one of the passengers on Flight 93 and Verizon Office in Illinois, which is widely known to have take place by the public. United 93 never shows scenes of the families of the passengers on the flight. For Flight 93, accounts from the families of the passengers are important, which help the filmmaker show the activity on the flight in more details.
