The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors-National Association (PHCC) reports that staff member Norma Khan was a confirmed passenger on the hijacked American Airlines Flight 77. Khan was traveling to PHCC's annual convention scheduled for Sept. 12-16 in Reno, NV.

The plane, after taking off at 8:10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, from Dulles Airport outside Washington, DC, crashed into the Pentagon after hijackers redirected the Los Angeles-bound flight back to Washington.

Khan was PHCC's manager of member services. She also coordinated the association's database operations and was the staff liaison for the Union-Affiliated Contractors. She had been a PHCC employee since November 2000.

The 45-year-old Khan was a resident of Reston, VA, with her 13-year-old son Imran.
