SHANKSVILLE, Pa. — An inventory released Friday of items lost from a recent fire at the Flight 93 National Memorial headquarters includes hundreds of original photographs and items found at the crash site that were linked to the passengers and crew.
The National Park Service said its team of museum experts and archeologists determined that 334 photos and 25 items connected to the plane’s occupants were destroyed. Digital copies of all the lost photos still exist, and audio recordings of phone calls made by passengers to family were undamaged.
Other items lost in the Oct. 3 fire include about 100 tributes from visitors and material from the investigation. The plane crashed after passengers fought back against hijackers on Sept. 11, 2001.
