Today for Museum Monday we’re exploring the Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian in Washington DC.
In 1927, Charles Lindberg flew “The Spirit of St. Louis” in the first nonstop trans-Atlantic flight.
In 1947, Chuck Yeager flew the Bell X-1 in the first flight to break the sound barrier.
In 1962, John Glenn orbited the earth as the first American in the Mercury Friendship 7.
In 1969, the Apollo 11 Command Module “Columbia” was used in the first manned lunar landing.
These are just a few of the highlights of the history of flight that
are represented by the aircraft at the Air and Space Museum.
They embody the spirit of aiming high, of traveling farther, and of seeking new horizons. Those lessons can be applied to life and to writing as well.
My best to you all,
