8: National Aviation Hall of Fame
Musicians have their Halls of Fame, it’s only fair that America’s rock stars of aviation get their own. In the Hall of Fame Learning Center, visitors can learn the rich history of the United States Air Force, American space pioneers, and the accomplishments of all the creative architects that put man into the skies and beyond. The Hall of Fame isn’t just a celebration of aviation history, it continually adds names to that list every year, with 2017 welcoming Air Force pilot Robert J. Gilliland, astronaut Scott Carpenter, turbojet engine inventor Frank Whittle, and NASA’s Charles Bolden.
