From the Wright Brothers to John Glenn, aviation in America has a strong Ohio connection. Over the course of the hour, we’ll learn about the Buckeye State’s place in aviation history.

We’ll also discover how a traveling exhibit is keeping the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen and Women’s Auxiliary Service Pilots (WASPS) alive.

Make a gift as a part of our fall membership drive and get a pair of tickets to the Columbus Airshow featuring the world-renowned Blue Angels.
