Win 'America's Hangar' on DVD!
Americans have always had a fascination with flight. In 1896, man’s first man-made aircraft left the ground … if just for seconds. Over the years followed such headliner successes as the Wright Brothers (1903), Charles Lindbergh (1927), Amelia Earhart (1928), Chuck Yeager (1947) and Neil Armstrong/Buzz Aldrin (1969). By the early ’40s and World War II, it was clear that air power would play a decisive role in winning the struggle. War demands pushed aircraft technology and design ahead at a dizzying pace, quickly going further and faster than ever thought possible and providing a treasure trove of legacy aircraft.
The Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum (established in 1946), also known as “America’s Hangar,” houses over 300,000-square-feet of aircraft and is the world’s most-visited museum. It has preserved and displays many of the world’s most- renowned historic aircraft. From the first airplane, commercial aircraft and spacecraft to take an American into orbit, Smithsonian Channel™ takes you on a personal tour of the collections of the National Air and Space Museum, chronicling the first century of flight.
