Weekend at the Museum: Milestones of Flight

I spend a fair amount of time on airplanes, so I find The National Air and Space Museum exhibit featuring some of the original aircraft in aviation and space history fascinating.  From the first successful airplane (The Wright Flyer) in 1903 to the first privately developed, piloted vehicle to reach space (SpaceShipOne), the museum shows us the milestones of flight. Where were you when some of these vehicles were launched?

Also, the online exhibit celebrates Sputnik and The Explorer and the first 50 years of the space age. It’s amazing to see some of the inventions of the last century.  I really hope you enjoy this exhibit as much as I did.
