Evergreen Air and Space Museum

We decided to take the advice of the Senior Advocate we met at the Oregon Capitol and visit the Evergreen Air and Space Museum (good thing it is part of our museum membership or it would have cost the four of us $100.)  We were excited to be able to see the Spruce Goose.  This massive airplane is built entirely of wood during war time when there was a restriction on metal during World War II.  We were able to step into the vast cargo bay for a closer look.   It was flown only once by its designer and builder Howard Hughes.

We viewed and read about many other interesting planes.  We even did some test flying on a simulator before heading to the Space Museum on the campus.  At the Space Museum we made sure to find the astronauts we had studied in our history lessons; Alan Shepard, John Glen, Neil Armstrong and Sally Ride.
