There have been some changes made to the Annual Flight 93 9-11 Ceremony. The public will no longer be allowed at the Commemoration. This year will be the nineteenth Anniversary Observance of the terrorist attacks which took place on September 11th. Unlike most years, the Flight 93 National Memorial will not allow visitors inside the park during the morning ceremony. For the past eighteen years, thousands of people have traveled from across the Country to visit the Flight 93 National Memorial to pay their respects to those who lost their lives on September 11th. But this year, the families of Flight 93 have requested this year’s observance to be held privately.
Despite the observance being closed to the public, both President Donald Trump and Democratic Presidential nominee, Joe Biden are set to visit the memorial on 9/11. According to a news release, President Trump will be landing at the John Murtha Johnstown-Cambria County Airport Friday morning. It is still unknown when Biden will be arriving at the memorial, despite our attempts at reaching out to Biden’s staff.
Despite the event being private, the Nation Park Service says they will live stream the observance. According to the park’s website, visitors will be allowed in the park after the morning observance, but it is unclear at exactly what time that will be.
