Description: The Boston Logan International Airport 9/11 Memorial is a place of reflection and remembrance for all those affected by the events of September 11, 2001. The Airport 9/11 Memorial honors the passengers and crews of American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, which departed Logan Airport that morning for Los Angeles. The Memorial also commemorates the dedication to duty of the Logan Airport community in restoring the aviation system to full operation and the contributions its members made toward comforting the families of the passengers and crew who were aboard those flights.
Massport dedicated a 2.5 acre site at Logan for the Airport 9/11 Memorial. A public design competition was held which resulted in the selection of the design concept, The Place of Remembrance by Moskow Linn Architects, a Boston-based architecture firm.
The Memorial site is anchored by a large glass sculpture that encases two glass panels etched with the names of the passengers and crew of each flight. The landscape has echoes of New England themes with stone walls and trees that will turn bright yellow each autumn.
It commemorates the victims of American Airlines Flight #11 which left from Gate 26 Terminal B and United Flight 175 which crashed into the World Trade Center after being hijacked from the airport.
