Missing 9/11 flag returns to Ground Zero site after 15 years

The flag erected by FDNY shortly after the 9/11 attacks went missing only hours after going up, and stayed missing for nearly 15 years. After all this time, the flag has been located, tested for authenticity, and will be returned to the 9/11 Memorial Museum in time for the 15th year since the attack.

[…] forensic experts compared the dust on the returned flag to samples from ground zero, and found the same “fingerprint” of concrete, glass fibers, plastic, molten metal and asbestos.
