Presenting Spirit of Flight Junior!

This year, young photographers were invited to submit their original photos for our first-ever Spirit of Flight Junior Competition. “Flight” is not just planes and birds as you will see from our photographers’ unique perspectives on the “spirit of flight!”

Since we are unable to display these great photos in our Museum gallery at the moment, please enjoy these digital slideshow presentations.

Entrants are divided into three age groups: Cirrus (14-17), Cumulus (9-13), and Stratus (5-8).
