British Airways Concorde
The Concorde made its first transatlantic service in 1976 flying 1,350 mph at 60,000’ altitude. It crossed the Atlantic Ocean in under 3 hours, less than half the time of any other jet craft. Its crew of 9 could fly 100 passengers in one flight. The Concorde airship serial #100-010 G-BOAD is on loan from British Airways.
Enterprise Space Shuttle
The first Space Shuttle built for NASA was The Enterprise performing atmospheric test flights.
