I am continuing to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jerrie Mock's 1964 world flight by showing some of the research photos I collected while writing my AOPA Pilot Magazine article about Jerrie entitled Aviation's Forgotten Pioneer.

Today's image shows you what happened to Charlie after Jerrie landed back at Port Columbus Airport 17 April, 1964. Yes, he now hangs in the NASM's Steven Udvar-Hazy Center, but there should have been a different place for him to be displayed.
