“25 years ago the Voyager landed at nearby Edwards Air Force Base after a nine day flight around the world without refueling . It was a landmark in aerospace history and a testament to the American Spirit” said Cathy Hansen.
Visitors will also be able to see a one-quarter scale model of Voyager and a full scale replica of Space Ship One on display in Legacy Park near the flight line. Other aircraft will be on display on the flight line also.
