We received a report from the FAA that Flight 93 had turned off it's transponder, had turned, and now was heading towards Washington DC. The decision was made to try to go in and intercept Flight 93...It was about 10:03 that the fighters reported that Flight 93 had crashed.

The words that I remember as clear as day was 'We will take lives in the air to preserve lives on the ground'...United Airlines Flight 93 will not be allowed to reach Washington DC

Are you seriously trying to compare the two?
Think man think.
Weak sauce dude, check out this website. It basically catalogues all of the plane crashes around the world.
Thats because one is real footage and the other is cgi cartoon. I'll let you decide which is which.
Ok, I actually like this comparison. Think about it, this plane broke in two when all it was doing was maybe 50 or 60 miles an hour and over ran the runway. Now increase the speed ten fold or better and have the plane impact about 45 degrees from vertical into solid ground. Imagine the destruction. That is Flight 93.
