Watch the Construction of the Flight 93 National Memorial in this Time-Lapse

On September 10, the Flight 93 National Memorial opened the doors to its new visitor center complex. Designed by Paul Murdoch Architects, the memorial honors the victims of United Airlines Flight 93, which was one of the four hijacked planes during the September 11, 2001 attacks.

In partnership with EarthCam, the National Park Service, the National Park Foundation, and Friends of Flight 93, a time-lapse video has been produced to document over 1,800 days of construction in under two minutes.

“The construction of the visitor center complex accentuates the national memorial’s transformation over the years,” said Keith Newlin, Deputy Superintendent of Western Pennsylvania Parks. “Documenting these events allows our future visitors to witness this part of the memorial’s history long after completion. EarthCam’s time-lapse composite of these events captures the thought and effort that has gone into creating a timeless place of reverence to honor the passengers and crew of Flight 93.”
