  • The three spires of the memorial measure 270, 231, and 201 feet in height, respectively.
  • The spires and their location within the memorial are meant to represent a jet fighter manuever.
  • Ground was broken for this memorial on September 15, 2004, and construction started on Janurary 15, of 2005.
  • The three stainless steel-plated spire structures are reinforced concrete of up to 60% of their height, and become hollow for the remainer of their height.
