  1. The story of one of the brave flight attendants who died was featured on 60 Minutes this past Sunday. They are not forgotten.

  2. Actualy, listening to the recordings of those harrowing phone calls from people in the doomed planes and buildings, you can’t help but be struck by the differences between calls made by crew and by civilians caught up in the horror in the normal routines.
    Whereas the civilians are naturally distraught and in despair, the crew, especially flight attendant Betty Ong, listed above, although her call is every bit as moving, were contained and professional to the end. Very impressive.

  3. Noel – There is a documentary by two French brothers who had spent the summer at a NYC Firehouse. They got some of the best film of the day as they accompanied firemen into the towers. I have always been struck whenever I watched it by the faces of the firemen. No false bravado, very grave faces, but they continued on with their jobs.
