Hundreds were in attendance at the TWA Flight 800 International Memorial at Smith Point County Park to remember the victims. County Executive Bellone provided opening remarks by recognizing the first responders and good samaritans who rushed to the scene to help and by thanking the TWA Flight 800 Families Association for their commitment to design, build and maintain the international memorial.
The remembrance ceremony concluded with an emotional recitation of the names of the victims, followed by families and friends in attendance placing carnations in the ocean at 8:30 p.m., the same time the plane went down.
