SHANKSVILLE, P.A. - A new visitor center is opening at the crash site of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The plane was hijacked during the Sept. 11 attacks, but never made it to its final destination.

Those on board the plane tried to wrestle control from the hijackers. It eventually crashed into a field killing all 44 people on board.

People who lost loved ones say the new center is a moving, although heartbreaking, way to honor the victims.

A memorial service is scheduled for the site this weekend to mark 14 years since the attacks.
