Twenty Years Later – The Shoe Bomb Attempt

On December 22, 2001, American Airlines Flight 63 was operating from Paris to Miami with 185 passengers, nine Flight Attendants, and three Pilots. During the flight, passenger Richard Reid attempted to ignite a fuse attached to an explosive device contained in his shoe.

The alert crew and passengers jumped into action and stopped what could have been a devastating situation. Countless lives were saved by their efforts. We recognize and honor the Flight Attendants and Pilots onboard Flight 63 twenty years ago today.
