Women's International Air and Space Museum


Visited the WIASM today.... got there too late to have a lot of time to browse at the gift shop...it closed at 4 pm. But I spent a lot of tme walking through the exhibits (that doesn't close til about 7 pm).

Here is just a brief sample, I hope to have a page of photos at www.womenfly.com soon. As well as info on how to get there, etc. (For example, the musuem is free, but parking at the airport costs $6.00)

I know this is from an old post of yours, but you still might be interested. There’s a short clip of Tracy Pilurs and her “Purple Puddytat” in the following YouTube video at 1:53. This video is from an old 8mm of the 1967 Erie Airshow at Erie, PA:
