I think it is safe to say that travel hasn’t been the same since the invention of the airplane. There are several ways to navigate the site. You can use the navigation strip across the top of the page or you can click around the main page.
The main sections are:
Fly Across America – in this section you can experience flight through different decades. Choose the decade you want to explore and your journey will begin. It was amazing to see the way the same route has changed over time.
Online Exhibition – this section is titled Explore Expedition on the navigation strip. It explores four different sections: The Early Years, Airline Expansion and Innovation, The Heyday of Propeller Airlines, and The Jet Age. You’ll learn lots of interesting facts about flight here!
Objects & Images – by far and away one of my favorite sections, here you get to explore photographs and artifacts/objects from flight’s history. I love looking at the old photographs and seeing the different objects like the airmail pilot’s coat.
Activities – here you will find different interactive activities you can explore. You’ll play matching games, create newsreels and more!
Stories – there are some amazing stories in flight’s history, you will find them here. Do you have your own amazing story about flight? If so you can submit it using the form on the right side of the page.
In the News – here you can check out recent air related news as well as archived articles.
Behind the Scenes – this was another of my favorite sections here. You get to explore all sorts of neat things in this section. You can discover how the museum goes about dressing its mannequins, find out how air pilots originally navigated, and even see the exhibit in real time with the live web camera feed.
This is an amazing look at a service that most people have used at one point or another in their lifetime. Check it out today!
