The remaining wreckage from United Flight 93 has been buried near the memorial in Shanksville, Pa., that marks the place it crashed on Sept. 11, according to a report in The Washington Post.
According to the Flight 93 National Memorial, four shipping containers containing the plane’s wreckage were buried in a private ceremony on June 21. The ceremony was only open to loved ones of the victims.
In the months before the burial, the wreckage was searched for any remaining identifiable items, with workers finding a number of objects that will be added to the memorial collection. The full report on collected items and how they will be incorporated into the memorial will be released later this year.
The final phase of the memorial is expected to open later this year, on the 17th anniversary of the attacks. It will feature a 93-foot tower at the entrance with wind chimes for the 40 victims. Named the Tower of Voices, it will have a different sounding chime for each of the heroic victims who tried to overwhelm the terrorists.
The 9/11 Commission concluded that the hijackers downed the plane in Shanksville as the passengers revolted.
