WHAT: On September 10, Flight 93 National Memorial is opening the doors to a new visitor center complex. EarthCam partnered with the National Park Service, National Park Foundation and Friends of Flight 93 to document construction at the site. See over 1,800 days of footage in less than two minutes with EarthCam’s time-lapse!
WHY: In the years following September 11, 2001, visitors to the Flight 93 National Memorial honored the victims amid burn marks and downed trees – until now. The crash site has been transformed and you can watch construction of the 6,809-square-foot visitor center with EarthCam.
“The construction of the visitor center complex accentuates the national memorial’s transformation over the years,” said Keith Newlin, Deputy Superintendent of Western Pennsylvania Parks. “Documenting these events allows our future visitors to witness this part of the memorial’s history long after its completion. EarthCam’s time-lapse composite of these events captures the thought and effort that has gone into creating a timeless place of reverence to honor the passengers and crew of Flight 93.”
