Final 3 artifacts from 9/11 attacks moved from airport hangar to Tunnel to Towers Foundation

QUEENS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The final three artifacts from the September 11th attacks were moved from a hangar to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

They were in storage for nearly 15 years.

Led by an honor guard paying the highest respect, the last three large artifacts from the World Trade Center, draped in an American flag, were taken from a large Hangar at JFK.

The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is now taking charge of them in honor of those lost.

For the last 15 years, Hangar 17 at JFK has been the repository for thousands of artifacts from the World Trade Center site, from the smallest pieces to the last to be moved.

Now the three pieces will be temporarily stored for future exhibition.

The foundation already operates a Never Forget mobile exhibit touring the country and is seen by hundreds of thousands of people.

The three artifacts include a 40,000 pound TV antenna base from the North Tower, a 35,000 pound elevator motor, and a 40,000 pound parking structure column.

Other pieces of steel have been used for monuments and ships.
