Oct 28, 2012 No Comments by

The Wright brothers’ airplane patent, along with photos taken by astronauts on the moon, are among the items that have been stolen from the National Archives. Tonight, “60 Minutes” takes a look at some of the thefts, along with a recovery team formed by the Archives that is working to find the stolen items. A con man behind bars for the largest theft of historic artifacts in U.S. history is also featured in the episode, airing at 7 p.m. (Eastern) on CBS.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
