RUMPLER TAUBE

Museum of Flight Rumpler Taube Aircraft

This photo shows the Museum's reproduction of the elegant Rumpler Taube produced before World War 1.  It was very common in the pre-war skies of Germany and Austria.  This beautiful plane soars over the lobby of the Museum and it is one of the Museum's most elegant aircraft on display.

1945 NORTHWEST AIRLINES FLIGHT ATTENDANT UNIFORM WITH MINK STOLE

 

Museum of Flight Flight Attendant Uniform with Mink Stole

 

The Museum is completing a second run of its popular exhibit "Style in the Aisle" featuring items from the Museum's extensive flight attendant uniform collection.  This is a photo of an unusual uniform with a striking accessory from 1945 to 1950 worn by Northwest Airlines flight attendants.  Yes, it is a mink stole.  Quoting from the exhibit, "The stole was only given to crews operating out of the same airports as Pan American World Airways.  Northwest's stewardesses wore the stole as a way of showing up the Pan Am hostesses who were dressed in pearls."

SOYUZ DROGUE REENTRY PARACHUTE

Museum of Flight Soyuz Drogue Parachute

In a museum full of large aircraft, small things can be overlooked.  I glanced at this item and saw how elegant it was.  This is the Soyuz Drogue Parachute used on the re-entry of a Soyuz space module in 2007.  The ivory fabric with the gold trim is really a showpiece for the museum.
