This specially-designed tractor-trailer will be on US highways over the next five years, raising money for a pemanent memorial for the victims of Flight 93.
STOW, Ohio — When travelling the US, you may want to keep 93 cents handy in case you cross paths with a new specially-designed tractor-trailer that will be criss-crossing the US to raise money for a permanent monument to the people who lost their lives aboard Flight 93 on 9/11.
As part of the ‘93 cents for Flight 93’ campaign, organizers of the campaign are hoping everyone can donate 93 cents towards their efforts. The tractor-trailer was designed and decaled by MACtac, an Ohio-based pressure-sensitive adhesive manufacturer which used graphic vinyl and overlaminate materials in wrapping the vehicle and trailer (see picture).
“Our company has a facility in Scranton, Penn. and had employees in the air on that day eight years ago so this really hits home,” said Jennifer Bowman, marketing manager, MACtac Corporate Marketing. “Contributing to something that qualifies in such high regard on a national level is an honor for us. This tractor-trailer will no doubt leave any observer, speechless.”
The truck will be making deliveries across the US over the next five years as part of the fundraising initiative.
Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville, Penn. on 9/11. The passengers overtook hijackers and prevented the plane from crashing into its intended target, potentially saving thousands of lives.
