Liberal Municipal Airport Unveils 911 Memorial

KSCB News - December 6, 2011 8:17 am

The Liberal Municipal airport today,
installed a permanent memorial to the Sept. 11, 2011, terror
attacks, using a twisted I-beam from the destroyed World Trade
Center.
Brothers Bruce and Brent Bitter created a series of sculptures
from the I-beam that are being installed at airports across the
state to mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The TSA agency has also unveiled sculptures at the Garden City and Dodge City airports and others airports across the state
over the past several weeks. Local officials were on hand for the unveiling and the swearing in ceremony for the local TSA officials.
The sculptures have become popular attractions for airport
visitors, said Keith Osborn, the TSA’s federal security director
for Kansas.
