Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

The Space Museum in Bonne Terre, MO Shows Renovated Facility

By Fred Harl
The Aero Experience recently visited The Space Museum in their newly-renovated facility in Bonne Terre, MO. The museum is supported in part by McDonnell Douglas retirees, some of whom directly contributed to the development and production of the Mercury and Gemini spacecraft. The Grissom Center, named for astronaut Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom, tells the story of the U.S. space program, with emphasis on manned exploration from Mercury to the Space Shuttle years. The displays are neatly and logically arranged, with a mix of original space hardware, models and documents that lend authenticity to the exhibits. We recommend a visit to this great Midwest Aerospace resource during your trek through southeast Missouri.
