Washington, D.C. - Admiralty Productions, Ltd., a Northern Virginia television production company headed by retired Navy Rear Admiral Bill Thompson, is producing a documentary for television: Pentagon 911, to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the September 11th attack.

This program will reveal for the first time the amazing stories of bravery and heroism of both civilians and military men and women when American Airlines flight #77 crashed into Fortress America, America's defense headquarters, at 500 MPH.

Tierney Communications, a full-service, national marketing firm based in Louisville, KY, will handle Admiralty Productions public relations, marketing and development for the project.

According to Admiral Thompson, “Everyone has the imprint of September 11, 2001, seared into their memories. We've all shared the heart-wrenching stories of the twin towers collapse in New York, and the emotional accounts of Flight 93's crash in Pennsylvania.

“But there is another compelling story that must be told: the strike on the Pentagon. Admiralty productions is pleased to have Tierney Communications on board to help us in this significant endeavor.” 

Thompson was formerly the president and builder of the U.S. Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC and executive producer of the IMAX film At Sea, running daily in the Navy Memorial heritage Center. During his military career, he was the Navy's Chief of Information at the Pentagon.

In addition to Tierney Communications, the following are part of the Admiralty Productions Pentagon 911 team: Mike Dickerson and Al Shackelford are the project's co-producers, Joel Ratner is directing, Jorge Castillo-Trentin is cinematographer, InterMedia Development Corporation is providing on-location production services, post-production editing, graphics, and music production.
