Alice Hoagland has had ten years to think about her son Mark Bingham’s death. He was one of the heroic passengers aboard Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. Bingham and others died fighting the terrorists on that flight.
As the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks near, KCBS is looking at the people deeply affected by the tragic events of that day, including a Bay Area mom who lost her son on United Flight 93.
The life story of one of the heroes on United Flight 93 is coming to the big screen.
It took nine years, but a documentary celebrating United Airlines Flight 93 passenger Mark Bingham’s life premiered in June.
“My first feeling was disbelief,” Alice Hoagland said, describing her initial reaction to the news of Osama bin Laden’s violent death in Pakistan.
