All 11 firefighters onboard the truck died when the tower collapsed.

The truck will become part of the National September 11th Memorial & Museum currently still under construction.

Members of the New York Fire Department watched as the 60-thousand pound truck was lowered into the exhibition space.

The museum will be dedicated at this year's 10th anniversary ceremonies, but won't open officially until 2012.
