Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum Shares the Dream of Flight With Young Eagles, Scouts

 

The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum hosted two group tours today, with approximately 35 Young Eagles earning their logbooks, and a group of Boy Scouts touring the museum.  The two groups were treated to appearances by the MO CAF B-25, “Show Me,” and a T-6 Texan based at St. Louis Downtown Airport where the museum is located.  Many of the Young Eagles were treated to a ride in the factory cart once used by James S. McDonnell, Chairman of McDonnell Aircraft, during President John F. Kennedy’s visit to the plant in 1962.  All young visitors received a poster depicting characters from the new Disney movie, ”Planes.”  The museum welcomes group visits, and arrangements should be made in advance by contacting the museum.  Here are some scenes from today’s activities:
