I am so proud that President Obama signed my legislation today to designate the Distinguished Flying Cross Memorial at Riverside's March Field Air Museum as a national memorial. This designation will give long-overdue recognition to the courageous military aviators in California and across America who have distinguished themselves by heroism in aerial flight.

Whats New at the Museum

 

VINCENT J. ROGERS JR. EXHIBIT

 

Written between October 1942 and January 1944, Staff Sergeant Roger’s captivating letters form the basis of this engaging, entertaining and ultimately heartbreaking exhibit. From a naïve teenager to a veteran at the age of 21 the exhibit takes this young volunteer from enlistment through the challenges of radio school, air gunner training, bomber familiarization at March Field and ultimately, to combat in the Central Pacific.  Nearly lost, his letters were saved through the intercession of the March Field Air Museum staff and have been developed into a comprehensive telling of the common man’s experience of war.

The second installment of the museum's timeline exhibits, the 1920s display, brings the visitor into a simulated wooden hangar maintenance area to view a number a period artifacts in an interactive setting. From a period pilot's logbook, a leather flight helmet and a MORSE biplane wing under repair, to a Curtiss OXX - 6 aircraft engine the display immerses each visitor into the world of 1920's March Field.

Space Shuttle Main Engine Nozzle #2029 on large orange structure

The museum has just completed a display highlighting one of our
most treasured artifacts, Space Shuttle Main Engine Nozzle Unit # 2029. During the operational period of NASA’s STS program between 1981 and 2011, every Space Shuttle was equipped with three RS-25 main rocket engines; each engine had an individual exhaust nozzle. A veteran of five space flights, nozzle #2029 flew on three Endeavor and two Atlantis missions from 1994 through 1996 before being retired to the metallurgy lab where NASA conducted tests on the impact of the burning propellant on the nozzles components.
