SUGG: Addition to Soarin' Over California's Legends of Aviation
In the entrance queue of Soarin' Over California, there is the "California Aviators Legends of Flight." This is an almost museum-like display of photos and placards of famous planes and aviators who were part of California's aviation history.
One of the planes is Burt Rutan's Voyager, which flew around the world non-stop. Burt Rutan also has his own photo and placard.
However, California's aviation history is far from over. Last year, the Burt Rutan-designed Spaceship One became the first civilian spacecraft and won the $10 Million X-Prize. It was carried to launch altitude by another Rutan-designed plane, the White Knight. The plane and spacecraft were designed, built and launched in California.
I suggest that these two aircraft be added to the Legends of Flight in the queue for Soarin' Over California. Burt Rutan should be invited for a public unveiling of the addition (which I think would be a minor marketing coup for DCA).
