*WHAT IS THE “WALL OF HONOR?”
The “WALL OF HONOR” is a true GIANT, PERMANENT MEMORIAL to the thousands of people who have contributed to our aviation and space exploration heritage.
It is located in Chantilly, Virginia on the grounds of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
Names of honorees are inscribed on the giant, air-foil-shaped wall, which will continue to grow in the years to come, and engraved names can be seen on the WALL OF HONOR panels.
The Wall of Honor is dedicated to honoring all men and women who have had a passion for flight.
As Reeve Lindbergh, daughter of Charles Lindbergh, explains in her letter to supporters of air and space history, as it grows in the years ahead it will feature thousands of individual and family names, along with the names of aviation leaders including: the Wright brothers, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Jimmy Doolittle, Chuck Yeager, Eddie Rickenbacker, Alan Shepard, John Glenn, and Shannon Lucid.

Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center
The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center is located near the Washington Dulles International Airport, and it is the companion facility to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall and it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building opened in December, 2003, and provides enough space for the Smithsonian to display the thousands of aviation and space artifacts that cannot be exhibited on the National Mall.
The two sites together showcase “the largest collection of aviation and space artifacts in the world!!!!!”
You are invited to place your name or the names of family members or friends on this permanent memorial at the only national museum dedicated to honor the pioneers of flight. One name could be yours!
