9/11

The 9/11 Memorial at Boston Logan Int’l Airport

Take some time today to think about how the world changed on September 11, 2001.

And if you’re at Boston Logan International Airport, today or anytime, take some time to visit the Logan Airport 9/11 Memorial, which is a permanent structure in a small park honoring the passengers and crews of American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175.

Those were the two planes that started out that day from Logan Airport for Los Angeles that were hijacked by terrorists and flown into theĀ  World Trade Towers in New York.

The memorial was dedicated on September 9, 2008 and is 20-by-20-foot glass cube that glows with a soft light at night. Inside the cube are two glass panels etched with the names of the people who were on each flight.

The memorial is located in a smalll park-like area between Terminal A and the Hilton Boston Logan Airport and can be a bit difficult to get to. Ask for directions and don’t give up.
