New exhibition presents a survey of the use of aluminum in aviation over the last century Without aluminum, the rapid advancement of aviation in the twentieth century would have been impossible. Aluminum’s lightness, strength, malleability, and durability was unmatched by any other material. Easily formed into a wide range of shapes, and combined with other metallic elements to form alloys, aluminum continues to have desirable qualities for many aeronautical applications. Aircraft have flown higher, farther, and faster with engines, wings, control surfaces, and internally braced, semi-...

New exhibition presents examples of aviation-inspired streamline design products from the early 1930s to the early 1950s During the Great Depression of the 1930s, the modern airplane became an inspiring symbol of hope. Sleek and shiny, the new all-metal aircraft lifted spirits and promised a brighter future. The emerging study of aerodynamics, using wind-tunnel testing, rapidly advanced the design of aircraft. With smoother streaming lines, airplanes were flying faster and farther and capturing the public’s imagination. The functionality of this new aerodynamic understanding, which became...
