Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a tough, if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also allows us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's not that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and often hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this is done on the Internet.
The ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some of the neat sites, info resources, and organizations we've discovered to ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx. These are the sites that WE check out -- when we need added perspective, a new spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape into cyber-aero-space for awhile.
Today's Aero-Linx was sent to us by one of our readers. The Portal Of The Folded Wings - Shrine To Aviation is the final resting place for many of aviation's pioneers. Restoration of the building began in 1995 and was completed in 2001 by an army of preservation specialists organized by the Sculpture Conservation Studio of Los Angeles. The Portal re-opened to the public in May of 1996, with a paper-display museum. The structure won several state-wide preservation awards and earned a listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
If you have site you'd like ANN to feature, don't hesitate to send it along.
