The Southern Museum of Flight
is hosting an exhibition in honor of the Alabama 200, entitled “Alabama’s Aviation History.

Its earliest beginnings predate the famous Wright Brothers’ first civilian flying school, established in Montgomery in 1910, and its history embraces both world wars, as well as a pivotal ongoing role in space research and exploration.
