The Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium has dubbed its new MD-80 exhibit a “Discovery Center.”

Museum officials hope the McDonnell Douglas commercial jetliner now on display can help inspire a new generation to continue Tulsa’s aerospace legacy.

“It’s exhibits like this that might spark the interest of a future pilot, mechanic or engineer,” said Bill Collins, senior vice president of base operations for American Airlines, the company that donated the airplane.¬†Museum officials and others who made the exhibit possible cut the ribbon for the Discovery Center on Monday.

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.
