Collection:

The James S. McDonnell Prologue Room in St. Louis tells this panoramic story of more than eight decades of aviation progress, from biplanes to space travel. Scale models, dioramas, paintings and photographs depict such important events as the first flight around the world in 1924, the first take-off of a jet fighter from a U.S. Navy carrier in 1946, the first aircraft to land at the South Pole in 1956, and the first manned spacecraft to orbit the Earth in 1962.
