Airports remember 9/11

Airports around the country will join in the observation of the anniversary of 9/11 today.

At Indianapolis International Airport, for example, a section of the World Trade Center steel recovered from Ground Zero will be on display in the Civic Plaza.


The steel artifact was presented to the Indianapolis International Airport fire department by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to honor local public safety responders, including airport employees, who deployed to the attack sites.

Year-round, the 9/11 Memorial at Boston Logan International Airport offers a place of reflection and remembrance. It’s located on a 2.5-acre site between the airport terminals and the Hilton Logan Airport.

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.
