Lockheed Martin Flight & Space
From mock bird wings and hot air balloons to the first powered heavier-than-air flight in the sands of Kitty Hawk, humans have long attempted to overcome the force of gravity. Explore the history of humankind’s quest to take to the sky, try your hand at guiding planes in for a safe landing in the MOST Control Tower, and more in the Lockheed Martin Flight & Space exhibit! Exhibit favorites include the historic Link Flight Trainer used to train pilots during WWII, a topographic flyer that allows visitors to experience the feeling of flying high, and the zero-gravity jumper.
