The Genesis of Flight
(Based on the Richard Gimbel Aeronautical History Collection)

The Genesis of Flight displays 300 items from the Colonel Richard Gimbel Aeronautical History Collection of more than 20,000 books, prints, manuscripts, and other items tracing 3,000 years of humanity’s aspirations and eventual achievement of flight.

The Friends sponsored the international scholarship and publication (in 2000) of The Genesis of Flight in print, and in 2014 they made an interactive version of the material available online.
