New trail at Flight 93 NMem lets visitors to connect to prior experiences with temporary memorial

SHANKSVILLE – By almost any standard, Flight 93 National Memorial is impressive in scope. It’s more than 2,200 acres in size, is built to a prominent California architect’s grand design and draws hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world each year.

However, many visitors to the Somerset County memorial seem just as interested in the much simpler first temporary memorial at the crash site of Flight 93, a 40-foot length of chain-link fence that was removed years ago, according to MaryJane Hartman, chief of interpretation at the memorial.
