Museum Hosts Scout Troop, Assists With Merit Badge Activities
The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum hosted about 70 Cub Scouts Saturday at historic Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2 at St. Louis Downtown Airport. The museum periodically assists local Scout troops with activities that contribute towards the requirements of the Aviation Merit Badge, and EAA Chapter 64 provides Young Eagle flights and ramp safety. The overcast weather conditions kept the aircraft on the ground this weekend, but the Scouts toured the museum and flew aircraft they made to demonstrate aerodynamics in action. The Scouts will return in the spring to take their Young Eagle flights. (Photos courtesy of museum Curator, Mike Burke).
