Flight 93 National Memorial

Just off of US30, the Lincoln Highway, in rural Pennsylvania is the Flight 93 National Memorial.
Just before 10:00 am on September 11, 2001, the plane is seen flying low and erratically over this site. At 10:03 it crashes, upside down, at 563 miles per hour into this Somerset County field. There are no survivors. All 33 passengers seven crew, and four hijackers are killed. The impact area is shown in this photo.
Personal items found at the crash site are displayed openly.
The names of each American victim are inscribed on individual white marble panels on the Wall of Names.

One of the victims was from Honolulu.

The Memorial was particularly beautiful and reverent on this beautiful Fall day.
