Fly Around the World Issue Date: 08-16-2015

Cool Spots imageThe National Air and Space Museum presents First Flight Around the World, in Pioneers of Flight, pioneersofflight.si.edu/ content/first-flight-around-world-0. More than a century ago, airplanes werenít nearly as advanced as they are today. They were made of wood, fabric and wire. In 1924, eight pilots planned to undertake a 26,000-mile flight around the world. In this game, you can help Plan the Flight. Itís trickier than it seems, because airplanes at the time could only travel 600 miles before refueling, and finding a safe place to stop while flying over an ocean could be a challenge.
