LIVE from Heinz History Center: Remembering 9/11 with Heather Penney, Fighter Pilot Hero
We welcome USAF fighter pilot veteran Heather Penney to the @SenatorJohnHeinzHistoryCenter in Pittsburgh. As the nation and the world prepare to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States, the VBC with @MilitaryCSP hosts a special event with Heather Penney, who was tasked with hunting United Flight 93 on Sept. 11, 2001. On that infamous morning, Lt. Penney climbed into the cockpit of her F-16 and took off in search of the hijacked aircraft. She had no time to arm her fighter.
