NC-4 Exhibit (South Wing)

Complementing the display of the famous NC-4 flying boat is an exhibit telling its brief, but eventful, career. The exhibit, built to look like the interior of a wooden hangar from the era in which the NC-4 operated, tells the story of its construction, transatlantic flight, recruiting tour of the Southeastern United States, and eventual restoration by the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Included are artifacts from members of the crew.
