In Memory of Betty Ann Ong

In Memory of Betty Ann Ong

Betty Ann Ong was 45 years old and from San Francisco, California. Betty was a flight attendant on American Airlines Flight 11.

On September 11, 2001, shortly after the takeoff of American Airlines Flight 11 from Logan Airport in Boston, Massachusetts bound for Los Angeles, California, the airplane was hijacked.

During the hijacking, Betty placed a call to American Airlines reservation agents in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina and relayed vital information about the identities of the hijackers and the hijacking situation on board the airplane. Betty's telephone call was the first call and indication that America was under attack, and her call eventually led to the shutdown of all flights nationwide. Under extreme duress and horrific circumstances, Betty remained calm and professional during her 23 minute telephone call. Prior to the crash of the airplane at the North World Trade Center in New York, Betty selflessly asked the ground crew to "Pray for Us", and not just for herself.

At 8.46am on September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the northern facade of the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
