Lindbergh Field to commemorate 9/11 with ceremony Saturday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Federal officials at Lindbergh Field will mark the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks Saturday with an annual color-guard presentation and wreath-laying at the bayside airport.

The brief ceremony will start at 8:46 a.m., the time of impact of the first of two hijacked jetliners flown into the World Trade Center in New York by al-Qaeda terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001.

A color guard from the U.S. Transportation Security Administration will perform the service at a small memorial in an outdoor area between the two main terminals at San Diego International Airport, said Nancie Carroll, a spokeswoman for the federal agency.

The observation, which has been held each year since 2002, will include a moment of silence throughout the airport, Lindbergh Field information officer Steve Shultz said.

Carroll said she was unaware of any plans for added local security during the anniversary of the attacks, which led to dramatic and lasting increases in oversight at travel centers and government facilities throughout the country.

"It's business as usual," she said.
