We Remember 9/11

Date:  September 11, 2012

Last year in remembrance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, a special edition of the airport newsletter, The Windsock, was issued.  It captured the memories of several airport workers who were on the scene that dreadful day.

  • American Airlines Flight 77 from Washington Dulles to Los Angeles, and the 64 people who died when it crashed in the Pentagon
  • United Airlines Flight 93 from Newark to San Francisco, and the 44 people who died when it crashed in to a rural Pennsylvania field
  • 2,595 people in the World Trade Center who died
