Flight 93 : the story, the aftermath, and the legacy of American courage on 9/11 by Tom McMillan ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The passengers of United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11th, 2001 have earned their rightful place among the pantheon of American heroes. Amazingly, 13 years after that day, the definitive account of this seminal event in the nation's history has yet to be written. Flight 93 provides a riveting narrative based on interviews, oral histories, transcripts, recordings, personal tours of the crash site and voluminous trial evidence made public only in recent years. There also is plenty of chilling new detail for readers who think they know the story of the flight. Utilizing research tools that were not available in the years immediately after the crash, the book offers the most complete account of what actually took place aboard United 93 from its delayed takeoff at Newark International Airport to the moment it plunged upside-down at 563 miles per hour into an open field in rural Somerset County, Pennsylvania."

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Road to recovery : transforming America's transportation by Bill Bradley ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
America's transportation program is facing demolition by neglect. Calls to "do more with less" when the nation's infrastructure is crumbling ignore the needs of a system in rapid physical decline. Failure to reform the transportation system risks deepening U.S. dependence on oil and eroding global economic competitiveness. America's transportation system is failing: infrastructure is crumbling and up to $175 billion is added annually to the national deficit. The United States is one of only a handful of countries in the world where revenues raised to support the federal transportation system do not cover costs. A nation's transportation system is a major actor in its economy, deserving investment and requiring federal funding and oversight. Changes to the system will help ensure future economic growth, recognize demographic and geographic shifts in both population and preferences, advance environmental and energy security, and embrace and support innovation. All of these items are necessary to maintain global competitiveness and guarantee future prosperity. Without reform, this failure poses a significant threat to America's economic, energy, and environmental security
