Children's Mementos to be Displayed at Sept. 11 Memorial
SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Crayon drawings, stuffed animals and other mementos left by children at the crash site of the hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 will go on display at a national memorial this weekend where 40 passengers and crew perished on Sept. 11, 2001.
The "Through Their Eyes" temporary exhibit in Shanksville will open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays this month.
The Flight 93 National Memorial is located about 65 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. Flight 93 passengers and crew took control of the Washington, D.C.-bound plane before it crashed.
Soon after the attacks, a fence at the temporary memorial was quickly covered with license plates, flags and other memorabilia. Stuffed animals, trinkets and pictures were tucked into the lower rings of the fence or placed on the ground.
