9/11 anniversary observations at airports

Airports around the country are joining in the observation of the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy.

One airport where the event is remembered year-round is at Boston Logan Airport, where a 9/11 memorial – The Place of Remembrance – honors the passengers and crews of American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, which were the two flights that left Logan Airport the morning of September 11, 2001 for Los Angeles.

The memorial,designed by Boston-based Moskow Linn Architects, sits on 2.5 acres adjacent to the Hilton Boston Logan Airport Hotel and includes a large glass sculpture that has two glass panels etched with the names of the passengers and crew of each flight.
