BOSTON (AP) - A new $3.5 million memorial at Logan International
Airport honors those who died after terrorists hijacked two
airliners and crashed them into New York's World Trade Center seven
years ago.
The 2.5-acre space is being formally dedicated Tuesday morning
by Gov. Deval Patrick, airport officials and victims' families.
American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 took off
from Logan on Sept. 11, 2001.
The outdoor site, next to the Hilton Hotel and a parking garage,
is planted with grass and gingko trees. Two walkways lead up a
small knoll to a green glass cube containing the names of 148
people aboard the doomed flights.
Memorial officials say it also recognizes the employees who
restored the aviation system and comforted victims' friends and
families.
