Sutherland to Narrate Discovery 9/11 Tribute

Golden Globe Award-winning actor Kiefer Sutherland will narrate Discovery Channel's The Flight That Fought Back.

The special tribute film chronicles the heroism of the 33 passengers and seven crew members on United Airlines Flight 93, which was hijacked and rerouted toward Washington, D.C., then crashed in Somerset County, Pa., Sept. 11, 2001.

The Flight That Fought Back “retells the plane's final moments as those on board fought to regain control of the aircraft, including rarely heard voice recordings and personal reflections of family and friends, and it details how 40 strangers discovered the terrorists’ scheme, devised a plan to respond and stopped the deadly plot, all in just 30 minutes,” Discovery said.

The network will premiere The Flight That Fought Back Sunday, Sept. 11 at 9 p.m. (EST/PST).
