America by Air

With a wide-ranging array of artifacts, photographs, artwork, and interactive displays, America by Air shows how paying passengers got off the ground after the development of airmail and how air travel went from the realm of intrepid adventurers to an everyday necessity. Visitors are able to cross a 30-foot-high pedestrian bridge and step inside the nose of a 747, getting a close-up look at the cockpit.
