The First Citizen Heros of the 21st Centruy…

SAN FRANCISCO – About a dozen Harley-Davidson motorcycles ridden by relatives and friends of United Flight 93 passengers and crew members roared into San Francisco International Airport, ending an eight-day journey that mirrored the plane’s intended path.

Flight 93 crashed in a Pennsylvania field Sept. 11, 2001, after being commandeered by terrorists.

The group left Newark Liberty International Airport on Sept. 3. They pulled into San Francisco just after 11 a.m. Friday, the same time the plane was supposed to have arrived eight years ago.

Ken and Dale Nacke, whose brother Louis “Joey” Nacke was on the plane, hugged and teared up as the motorcycles’ engines were turned off.

The group was followed by a U-Haul truck carrying a replica of a makeshift memorial erected near the crash site in Shanksville, Pa.
