Flight 93 News:

Construction

The first phase of the Flight 93 National Memorial was completed and dedicated on September 10, 2011.

The Memorial is taking shape in phases, beginning with the grading of the half-mile-wide Field of Honor, protection of existing ponds and wetland habitats, construction of the visitor gateway, construction of a 1,000-foot-long viewing plaza surrounding the crash site, and the raising of a wall engraved with the names of each of the 40 passengers and crew set along the final flight path of Flight 93.

The next phase of construction includes the planting of 40 memorial groves, construction of a visitor and education center, and raising of an entry portal providing a sweeping view of the expansive field of honor and memorial plaza below. The tower of voices will also be constructed in a subsequent construction phase.

The campaign to support the memorial continues as funds are still needed to build the remaining features of the memorial. See the entire vision for the Flight 93 National Memorial and please consider making a donation to help finish building one of America's newest national parks.

The site is open and accessible to the public. To plan your visit, go to the National Park Service website.
