On September 11, 2001, Air Force Lieutenant Heather “Lucky” Penney was ordered to ram an F-16 into the fourth plane that was hijacked. Heather’s determination to complete her mission, regardless of the costs exemplifies her heroism and her continuation of the distinguished career in aviation of her father, John Penney, a retired Air Force Colonel and United Airlines Captain. In this lecture, this remarkable father and daughter team will discuss their experiences on 9/11, their shared passion for aviation, and their inspiring service to our nation. Moderated by Museum Deputy Director Chris Browne, who was the manager of Reagan National Airport (DCA) on September 11, 2001.
