Flight 93 Memorial

This is now a compelling site pretty much in the middle of nowhere. While not entirely complete, the story of Flight 93 is told on storyboards mounted at the entrance to the site. There is also a phone number to call in order to get a narration of the events chronologically as one reads the boards.

It is about a 10 minute walk nearly to the actual crash site, which is off limits to all but immediate family. The approximate spot of the crash is marked by a 14 ton boulder with American flags mounted in the front. The names of the crew and passengers are engraved on tall white marble tablets in a line that mimics the direction in which the plane was traveling when it crashed. A long, low black wall running all the way to the memorial wall on the left has several alcoves in which rosary beads, notes, embroidered patches, etc. have been placed by visitors to the site.

Friendly park rangers are available to answer questions. Very quiet. Quite stunning.
