Travel Tidbits: an Astrochimp, airplane models, and more

It has been difficult – to say the least – to read anything but political news this week. But we did take a break and found these fun aviation-related treasures in our Twitter stream about anniversaries marking the death of Ham the Astrochimp and a record-breaking flight by Howard Hughes. The SFO Museum gives us a behind-the-scenes look at how it cares for airplane models and a fun early ad for a sleeperette compartment.
