TSA At Charlotte Douglas International Airport Security Unveils 9/11 Artifact

Steel Beam Was Part Of The World Trade Center

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officials from Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) today unveiled a section of a steel beam that was salvaged from the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

The striking piece of scorched steel recovered from the ruins of the World Trade Center is a powerful reminder of how important TSA’s national security mission is. The beam was originally from Tower One of the World Trade Center and shows damage from the attack, a visual representation of the devastation experienced in 2001. It now serves as a reminder to the men and women of TSA who remain firm in their resolve to prevent another attack.

“This section of a steel beam was taken from the ruins of the World Trade Center and it serves to remind us of our mission to protect the Homeland,” said TSA’s North Carolina Federal Security Director Kevin Frederick. “It reminds us of why we are here, why we dedicate ourselves to the mission to protect travelers. Why what we do is so very important, even now, 16 years after the terrorists attacked our homeland.”

A memorial plaque rests atop the display as a reminder of the focus and the mission of TSA.  The plaque states that “During the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America, close to 3,000 innocent people were killed in New York City, Washington D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, including nearly 400 first responders. This artifact is part of a steel beam taken from the ruins of the World Trade Center.”
