Groundbreaking for Flight 93 Visitor Center



A groundbreaking ceremony has been held for the visitor center at the Flight 93 National Memorial.
 
Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell drove the first stake Tuesday afternoon to mark the site, which is on a ridge overlooking the spot where United Flight 93 crashed on September 11, 2001, after passengers fought back against hijackers.
 
The 6,800 square foot visitor center is expected to open in late 2015. The building design is broken in two at the point of the plane's flight path. The Friends of Flight 93 volunteer group also announced that it has selected its first executive director. Norwood R. "Rob" Dennis will be responsible for day-to-day management to help support the memorial.
 
The Flight 93 National Memorial is located in Shanksville.
