DALLAS (AP) -- One might not be able to guess the grim provenance of two pins soon to be on display at the American Airlines Flight Academy museum in Fort Worth.

The flight attendant's wings and a flight attendants union pin were retrieved from the thousands of tons of debris after terrorists flew an American Airlines jet into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

The Dallas Morning News reports the pins show none of the damage from the crash. Four flight attendants, two pilots, five hijackers, 53 passengers and 125 people inside the Pentagon died.

American Airlines will put the pins on display at the company's C.R. Smith Museum.
