The remaining wreckage of United Flight 93 that crashed into a field in Somerset County on 9/11 will be buried on the site of state’s national memorial honoring the victims later this year.
The remaining pieces of the plane have been in secure storage until they could be returned to the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville.
“Now that we are nearing the completion of the major design components of the memorial, we are ready to return the remaining wreckage to this hallowed ground to be buried later this year,” said Stephen Clark, superintendent of the Flight 93 National Memorial.
The burial will take place in a restricted access zone on the sacred ground of the national memorial and will not be accessible to the public or the media, museum officials said.
The Families of Flight 93, the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation have been working on bringing the wreckage back to the site.
