Lewiston firefighters and police officers pay tribute on the overpass on Old Lisbon Road in Lewiston early Wednesday afternoon. They were showing their support for a convoy of vehicles and motorcycles escorting a piece of metal from the World Trade Center in New York City that was being transported to Newfoundland. It will be included in a display at the Gander airport, where 38 planes were diverted and grounded during the 2001 terrorist attacks. The small town rallied together to care for the 6,000 people stranded there as airports in the US were closed.
