Oral historians at the Flight 93 Memorial in Somerset County, Pa., are in the process of transcribing more than 780 interviews that have been recorded to create a documentation collection for research and education that compliments exhibits at the planned Flight 93 Memorial, according to Essential Public Radio 90.5 in Pittsburg.

The oral histories include stories from those who were first on the scene, journalists covering the disaster, and the family members who received calls from loved ones as Flight 93 went down in a field in Shanksville.
