Iron and Steel Run and Fire Family Transport Foundation in the News

Shanksville Cross

NEW YORK (AP) - (WABC) — The roar of 1,000 motorcycles accompanied a steel beam from the World Trade Center on Saturday as it traveled to Pennsylvania, where it will be part of a memorial to those who died there in a Sept. 11 airliner crash.

Hundreds of current and retired FDNY firefighters left Brooklyn’s Floyd Bennett Field at about 7 a.m. to escort the girder on the 311-mile ride to Shanksville, Pa. The group arrived in Shanksville Saturday evening.

(Continued here.)
