Son of Alice Hoagland and Gerald Bingham.
September 11th Terrorist Attack Victim. He was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 93 that was taken over by Al-Qaeda terrorists on September 11, 2001, and was one of the passengers who gained widespread acclaim for his part in thwarting the plane being flown into a target in Washington, DC. He had been a champion rugby player in college, and had helped the University of California at Berkeley team earn two national titles. Nicknamed "Bear Trap", he helped recruit and train members of San Francisco's first gay rugby team. He founded a public relations firm with offices in San Francisco, California and New York City, New York, and was returning home when his plane was hijacked by the terrorists. It is widely believed that Bingham and other passengers attacked the hijackers, having heard reports about the terrorist attacks in Washington, DC and New York. Before they acted, he called his mother from a phone and told her that "things didn't look good" and that he loved them all. The plane then crashed at 10:03 AM in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, far from what is believe it's intended target. His remains were eventually recovered and interred in Madronia Cemetery, Saratoga, California. His name can be found on Panel S-67 of the National September 11 Memorial in Manhattan, New York City, New York, and on the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
