End Notes

For almost a year, the recovery team at the Fresh Kills facility sifted, sorted, and searched through 1.8 million tons of World Trade Center material. The staff never recovered a black box from the jets, a box cutter, or anything relating to the hijackers. The recovery operation was officially completed on July 26, 2002, at 1:00 p.m.
