Museum Receives Spirit of St. Louis Cockpit Exhibit

The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum, located in historic Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2 at St. Louis Downtown Airport,  received a Spirit of St. Louis cockpit exhibit on loan from the Missouri Historical Society this week.  The cockpit was part of the Lindbergh collection at the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis, and the loan will keep it in the public eye while the Missouri Historical Society renovates its Lindbergh exhibit.  It was constructed by Parks College of Engineering and Aviation of St. Louis University, whose fleet of training aircraft is located near the new display site.
