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 archaeologists determined 334 photos and 25 items connected to the plane’s occupants were destroyed. The material, some from the crash site, includes a boarding pass, an airport parking receipt and passengers’ identification cards.
Digital copies of all the lost photos still exist.
“It was a devastating fire and a devastating loss, but overarching all of it, we are grateful that there was no loss of life in this fire,” said Lisa Linden with the group Families of Flight 93.
