Hundreds attend Flight 93 National Memorial service

"They can come here and see this handsome tribute, and they can walk through the visitor's center to learn about what happened that day", she said. Once constructed, the tower will contain 40 different chimes to symbolize the eternal voices of the passengers and crew members of Flight 93, according to Washington Examiner.

Actual construction on the tower will begin later this month.

Steve Clark, the park's superintendent, said the tower will complete the memorial "in a most lovely way". Each chime tube is made of polished aluminum measuring eight to 16-inches in diameter, varying in length from five to ten feet.

"To our knowledge, tuned chimes of this size and an arrangement in this magnitude are unique in the world", Murdoch said. To view the live stream, visit www.flight93friends.org/plan-your-visit/webcams.
