James S. McDonnell Prologue Room Preserves Aerospace Heritage at Boeing St. Louis Facility

By Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience recently visited the James S. McDonnell Prologue Room, The Boeing Company's aerospace exhibit hall in St. Louis.  The name is based on the Shakespearean phrase, "The Past Is Prologue," which means a past act has set up a future action.  In this context, it can be demonstrated that the aerospace heritage forged by McDonnell Aircraft Corporation, Douglas Aircraft Company, McDonnell Douglas Corporation, North American Aviation, Hughes Aircraft Company and the Boeing Company has formed the current Boeing Company into the best-performing aerospace company in the nation last year (CNN Money Ranking No.1).  Over 90 years of aerospace history is presented using scale models of hundreds of different aircraft, spacecraft and weapons systems, including full-scale mock-ups of the Mercury and Gemini spacecraft that put America's first astronauts into space.  We encourage our audience to visit the Prologue Room each summer, and schedule group tours throughout the year.  here is a glimpse of what you will experience during your visit:
