Flight 93 Land Value in Dispute

The former land owner claims the land is worth much more than he was paid.
PITTSBURGH, ALLEGHENY COUNTY – The value of the land where United Flight 93 crashed on September 11, 2001 began in court Tuesday.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Michael Svonavec is arguing he was paid a small fraction of what the land was worth when Flight 93 crashed on his property.

Svonavec is arguing the property is worth more than $23 million, and the government said the land is worth $11,000.

The Post-Gazette reports the Friends of Flight 93 paid Svonavec an additional $750,000 for any added expenses.

A panel of three Federal Commissioners will decide the case.
