Announcing a New Website Feature
We have added a new menu pick labeled "Articles." This is a place where we will share content about topics that include the Museum, and aviation history that we hope you find interesting, informative and educational.
There will be one series of articles with the title of "Who Cares" written by the Museum's Executive Director, Mike Speciale. Issue #1 is about how aircraft get to the Museum.
Also added under Artlcies, is titled "Who Flew First?" were we give some information on Gustave Whitehead as we get a number of questions from visitors asking about him.
Please check back from time to time as we add more!
