SHANKSVILLE, PA — September 9, 2018 — Today, the Flight 93 National Memorial is hosting a dedication event to mark the completion of the final phase of the memorial in Shanksville, PA. The Tower of Voices is the last piece of the permanent memorial, which rests on more than 2,000 acres of land owned by the National Park Service. EarthCam is honoring the special event by sharing its construction time-lapse movie.
Continuing its longstanding partnership with the National Park Service, EarthCam cameras were onsite in Shanksville, PA to document construction of the Flight 93 National Memorial from start to finish, including the Wall of Names, Visitor’s Center and the Tower of Voices. From August 2010 to September 2018, EarthCam cameras captured more than 275,000 high-resolution images, which were professionally-edited into a commemorative time-lapse movie. The Tower of Voices is the newest addition to the Memorial site. The 93-foot tall musical instruments holds forty wind chimes, representing the forty passengers and crew members, and serves as a visual and audible reminder of the heroism of all those onboard United Flight 93.
In addition to the Flight 93 National Memorial, EarthCam continues to document the rebuilding at the World Trade Center site. In 2001, just days after the attacks, EarthCam CEO & Founder, Brian Cury, personally installed the first camera to webcast the rescue and recovery for the world to see. Millions of photos of the rebuilding plus the original camera are part of the National September 11 Memorial Museum collection.
