Local Company Helps Build Flight 93 Memorial Center
After 14 years of planning and development, the Flight 93 National Memorial has been completed and opened to family members of the victims. Local company, Southern Custom Exhibits Inc., which has been in business since 1988 and in Anniston since 1992 is the team that helped to complete the museum exhibit on the Flight 93 Memorial Center. Business owner Greg Morrow says that it was very difficult to win the project. The SCE crew travelled to Pennsylvania and over 5 weeks re-assembled the massive exhibit ahead of schedule despite a 3 month delay by government. Visitors to the memorial and museum, which is operated by the National Park Service, will see displays and artifacts commemorating all of the terrorist acts of September 11, not just what happened on Flight 93. But the museum focuses on that plane's passengers and their stories and includes portraits of all 40 victims, as well as recordings of cellphone calls to family members as the disaster unfolded.The Flight 93 National Memorial is located at the site of the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 in Stonycreek Township, Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Currently, SCE is working on the Ellis Island Immigration Museum in New York Harbor.
