Curatorial Updates

The Museum exhibits team recently lifted a Bowlus “Baby Albatross” glider to the ceiling in the Rearwin Gallery area where it is displayed next to its older brother the Bowlus “Paper Wing.” The former was advertised as the affordable sail plane of its day when first produced in 1937, with a kit price of $385 and a ready to fly price of $750. Both sprang from the fertile design mind of Hawley Bowlus, San Diego native and soaring enthusiast. Bowlus was also very well known for his work on the original Spirit of St. Louis at Ryan, and as the inventor of the Airstream trailer.
