Hangar 17 is home to World Trade Center steel

It's pretty amazing to see what was saved from the World Trade Center site.

The World Trade Center steel program, a program operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is selecting portions of the steel recovered from the World Trade Center and donating it to cities, towns, firehouses and museums around the U.S. and the world who request it for use in 911 memorial sites in time for the 10 year anniversary of the 2001 attacks.

Hangar 17 at Kennedy Airport houses the collection of steel, a fire truck, a rail car and other artifacts.

Back in 2006, Brian Williams of Nightly News took a tour of Hangar 17. Click "show more" below and scroll down to see the video.
