Work: Flight 93 September 11th Memorial
The Flight 93 National Memorial is built on a 1,000 acre reclaimed coal strip mine – the crash site of Flight 93 on September 11th, 2001 – in the hinterlands of Shanksville, PA. Our memorial was a simple, but powerful, tribute to the 40 heroes on board Flight 93. It provided each passenger with a 93-foot-tall, gateway arched and metaphorically rising from the ground towards the direction of each passenger’s ‘home’.
At the place of the crash site a field of wild flowers, blossoming from spring to autumn, are planted each and every year. The site is detailed with stainless steel plaques protecting the sacred ground where the plane crashed, and carries inscriptions provided by family members memorializing the spirit of each of the souls that fell with Flight 93.
