Remembering the Crew of United Flight 93

Communications Workers of America

Nick Pino, a United Airlines flight attendant and member of AFA-CWA Local 21062, had never run a marathon. But when he was selected in a company lottery to run in the NYC Marathon, he jumped on the opportunity to run and honor his colleagues, the heroes of United Flight 93 who perished in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001.

Nick Pino, a United Airlines flight attendant and AFA-CWA Local 21062 member, ran his first marathon to honor his colleagues, the heroes of United Flight 93, who perished in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001.

Nick dedicated his training and race to those colleagues and raised funds for the Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund; Dahl was the captain of United Flight 93.

AFA-CWA International President Sara Nelson said, “We’re very proud of Nick for this personal memorial to our colleagues, and want to recognize his tremendous effort. We honor our friends and colleagues who lost their lives on September 11 every day, through our work for the safest skies and our vigilance as aviation’s first responders.”
