SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) ' A somber ceremony honoring the heroism of the 40 passengers and crew aboard Flight 93 on Sept. 11 has begun.

Vice President Joe Biden and former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, along with relatives of the passengers and crew, were attending Saturday under gray skies in a field soggy from rain all week in rural Pennsylvania.

Speakers at the dedication of the first phase of the $62 million Flight 93 National Memorial also include Gordon Felt, president of Families of Flight 93. His brother Edward telephoned a friend to report the flight was being hijacked.

Sarah McLachlan was also set to sing during the ceremony before Biden unveils a wall with the names of those aboard the plane.

Muddy fields that complicated parking and heavy security delayed the start of the ceremony.
