The Aerospace industry has a rich but relatively young history with over just 100 years in flight. For starters…take a quick walk through aviation history decade by decade.
There are many educational and scholarly sites, like the Aviation History Online Museum, the History of Aviation, Airports and Aircraft, and don’t forget the big museums like the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the National Museum of the United States Air Force which offer resources for education and entertainment.
Looking a little closer to Oklahoma? Look no further, right in our own backyard is the Tulsa Air and Space Museum and the Stafford Air & Space Museum. Or just get your kicks by discovering science through the Science Museum Oklahoma.
