Air and Space Museum
601 Independence Ave., SW
Location: Air Transportation, Gallery 102, 1st Floor, West Wing
The past, present, and future of air traffic control are examined in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of air traffic control in the U.S. A highlight of the exhibition is a simulated control tower where the visitor can experience--through interactive videodisc display--what it is like to control air traffic in a busy terminal. Another highlight is a display on the proposed Microwave Landing System that will supersede the system currently in use.
This exhibition celebrates the museum's 10th anniversary.
