9/11 Memorial to be unveiled at Boston Logan Airport

We’re, sadly, coming up on another anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy and, according to an article in the Boston Globe, a $3.5 million Airport 9/11 Memorial will be unveiled tomorrow (Tues. Aug 9th) at Boston’s Logan Airport “seven years after two jets departing from Boston were commandeered in the worst terrorist attack in US history.”

Those two jets, American Flight 11 and United Flight 175, were the ones that the hijackers used to attack New York’s World Trade Center.

As the article describes, the memorial is next the airport Hilton Hotel and the west parking garage, and consists of “a grassy knoll planted with ginkgo trees and capped with a translucent green-glass cube, which contains the names of the 148 people aboard American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175.”
