Work begins on wind chime tower, the final element of Flight 93 NMem

The 16th anniversary of United Flight 93's crash into a Pennsylvania field during the 9/11 terrorist attacks will mark the beginning of the end of a $46 million effort to transform the rural Pennsylvania crash site into a national memorial park.

Ground was broken Sunday on the final element of the Flight 93 National Memorial -- a 93-foot tall Tower of Voices. The tower to be built near the park's entrance will feature 40 tubular metal wind chimes, one each for the 33 passengers and seven crew members who died.
