SHANKSVILLE, Pa. --  National park service officials say a visitor's center complex at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville will open on September 10th.  That's one day before the 14th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.  The new center includes a permanent exhibit, a multipurpose gathering space, walking trails and a flight path walkway and overlook that lets visitors see the crash site from a distance.  Flight 93 memorial deputy superintendent Keith Newlin said the area is designed for visitors to reflect on what happened there.  United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field after being hijacked during the attacks on September 11, 2001.  A permanent memorial was dedicated on the 10th anniversary of the attacks.
