99's Museum of Women Pilots

The 99's Museum of Women Pilots held a dedication to celebrate the Grand Re-opening on June 26, 2010.

The museum is located near Will Rogers World Airport and was closed for seven months of refurbishing. The museum added and expanded several exhibits, such as a "Dreamflyer” flight trainer, an array of female aviators around the world and a display of women's vintage aviation fashions that includes go-go boots and outfits that cleverly convert from skirts to pants and tops.

The re-opening featured NASA Astronaut Randy Bresnik, grandson of Alfred Bresnik who was the personal photographer of Amelia Earhart. He returned a scarf belonging to Earhart which he took with him into space. You can read more of The Oklahoman article HERE and about women pilots HERE.
