Home Address: Anywhere in the Air

This exhibit illustrates the “golden age of flight” with aviation pioneer, and North Central Washington native, Clyde Pangborn. Photographs and artifacts celebrate Pangborn’s life and career, including his record-setting adventure in 1931 when he and partner Hugh Herndon completed the first non-stop, trans-Pacific flight from Sabishiro Beach, Japan to Wenatchee, Washington. The bent propeller from their aircraft – Miss Veedol – is a featured highlight of the exhibit.
