US President Donald Trump is due to attend a memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania where hijacked Flight 93 crashed into an open field.

The crash site was far short of the attackers' goal: the USA capital.

- President Donald Trump is marking 17 years since the worst terrorist attack on US soil by visiting the Pennsylvania field that became a september 11 memorial.

The last moments of the flight and the conversations between passengers, crew members and the hijackers fighting in the cockpit were broadcast in 2006 in a U.S. courtroom during the trial of Frenchman Zacarias Moussaoui.

Felt spoke earlier in the day, also lauding his brother and others who took action on Flight 93 for their courage in the skies above Somerset County in 2001.

"On September 11, 2001 9:33 AM, it was here that freedom took it's dramatic stand", Schweiker said. He also tweeted quotes from Fox News about a series of his familiar grievances, including the Russian Federation probe and the U.S. Department of Justice.

Not surprisingly, the ways in which the president has behaved thus far on the 17th anniversary of the Twin Tower attacks has been ripe for controversy and criticism. His leadership, bravery and skill must never be forgotten.

Trump also said that since 9/11, almost 5.5 million Americans have enlisted in the armed forces.

Introduced by Schweiker, Gov. Tom Wolf detailed the heroism of those on this day.

"We're gathered together on these hallowed grounds to honor the memory of almost 3,000 souls who were murdered on this day 17 years ago", the president said. "They only knew that their fellow Americans were at risk, so they sacrificed everything for them".

The passengers and crew were killed when the plane crashed into a field as they were attempting to fight off the hijackers who had commandeered the aircraft.

Then he brought the message back to "the 40".

Cockpit voice recordings of the hijackers and mobile phone calls from those aboard to loved ones indicate passengers tried to fight their way into the cockpit to regain control before the plotters nosedived the plane.

They "joined the immortal ranks of American heroes", said Trump.

Former President Barack Obama visited the Shanksville site on the 10-year anniversary of the attacks in 2011, and former President George W. Bush dedicated the memorial on the site later that year.
