Title: America by Air
Url: http://airandspace.si.edu/exhibitions/america-by-air/online/
Publisher: National Air and Space Museum
Description: If you're not in the mood for packing up the car and going to your local airport, why not just take a look at this delightful online exhibition from the National Air and Space Museum? The moment the virtual airport terminal gates open, visitors will be presented with a set of different activities, including a virtual flight across America during different parts of the twentieth century. Visitors can click on the "Fly Across America" to view period documents that depict what the in-flight experience was like from the 1920s to the present. Moving on, the "Explore Exhibition" takes visitors through the different periods of American aviation history, complete with historic photographs, first-hand recollections, and so on. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of the site is the "Activities" section. Here visitors can learn about the responsibilities of a travel agent during the golden age of aviation, take a look at an interactive ticket price meter, and check out the frenetic world of the baggage claim, past and present.
