Most people have heard of Amelia Earhart, but how much do you know about some of the other incredible women that helped shape the aviation industry??

Meet 10 famous Kansas women, including Olive Ann Beech, Amelia Earhart, Hattie McDaniel, Carry Nation, Linda Brown Thompson, Jennifer McDonald, and Tammy Hammond.

Earhart is No. 64 in the upcoming book 100 Things to Do in Kansas Before You Die.

TKAAM - The Kansas African American Museum, No. 79, enshrined McDaniel into its hall of fame.

Kansas Aviation Museum, No. 65, enshrined Beech. McDonald owns No. 18, Jenny Dawn Cellars.

Linda Brown's inability to attend Sumner Elementary was the catalyst for Brown V. Board of Education, No. 80.

13 April 1970, 03:07:53 UTC, T+55:54:53 - This Day in Aviation

On this day 51 years ago, those 5 famous words were muttered "Houston, we've had a problem" and the entire world held their breath while these 3 astronauts fought disaster after disaster, were forced to abort their original mission to the moon, and eventually landing in the South Pacific 4 days later.

13 April 1970: At 10:07:53 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (mission elapsed time 55:54:53), while Apollo 13 and its crew, James A. Lovell, Jr., John L. Swigert and Fred W.

After listening to the presentation by Wichita's own Mr. Larry Hatteberg, the crowd was around him to greet him and shake his hand, this morning. It was an enjoyable and exciting opportunity this morning.
great museum with very friendly volunteers.
Hello! I'm glad I found your Page! :)
Kansas Aviation Museum https://www.kirtland.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1812582/kirtland-dedicates-marker-to-fallen-b-29-aircrew/ One of your Kansas-built B-29s was remembered Thursday last (11 Apr) on the 69th anniversary of the crash of 45-21854.
KAM is a great place on FB. When looking at the pictures a few of the planes are unidentified, Olive Ann Beach was not identified and the list goes on. If you are going to post please give a little more thought to those who do not know. πŸ™‚
Since the base isn't an option for most people, head on out to KAM and watch the landings from there!
