No, not the points, the lines through the middle. I think they're walkways from the compass points to the center. Well, I guess they could be part of a compass rose too ... meh ... I`ll give it to ya, but it still looks like a plane in a scope crosshairs to me. >.<

Runemang, those aren't crosshairs, its a compass rose.

This is really beautiful and heart-felt, but will be covered with sand inside of a decade, unless people go and keep it cleared constantly.

It's a beautiful story and awesome work but ... am I the only one thinking that a flying airplane in a crosshairs might not exactly say "memorial"? <.<

I mean, if someone dies in a car crash do you put a mangled car on the headstone?

I dunno ... maybe I`m just seeing crosshairs and that wasn`t there intention. *shrug*

And it'll be buried in sand in a year so why bother?
