Flight 93 Memorial (2011)

The Flight 93 Memorial has changed drastically within the past couple of years.  Yesterday I did a post showing what it used to look like.  Today's post shows how it currently looks with photos that I took this past Sunday while visiting it with my parents.  The park is still under construction but the parts that are complete were very nicely done.  It is a beautiful tribute to the passengers and crew of Flight 93.

The old memorial was covered with items that visitors left behind.  The new memorial has only a handful of places built into the walkway wall where things can be left.

There is a tall marble slab for each of the passengers and crew members.

Straight through the wooden gate is the actual crash site that is now marked by a 17-ton boulder.

war on terror, and they should never be forgotten.

  1. A very fitting tribute & photo montage. I had the opportunity to meet Chief Shaffer while at a Firefighting Conference this summer. Amazing to hear the story of what this small, tight knit community went through on that day 10 years ago. I'm going to pass this along to the members of my firehouse so they can appreciate it too. Thanks for sharing Angela! --Tim--
