In this week's Ask an Expert Live, aeronautics curator Dorothy Cochrane will talk about the Fairchild FC-2W2. Christened the Stars and Stripes, the Fairchild FC-2W2 was a sturdy and practical addition to a complement of aircraft brought together for the inaugural aerial expedition to the South Pole in 1929 headed by Lt. Commander Richard Byrd.
