The Great Africa Air Safari

Program Audience(s): 

The Great Africa Air Safari was an educational initiative bringing the real-time excitement of an airborne journey through Southern Africa to our Aviation Learning Center. A group of Museum volunteers and friends shipped their historic de Havilland Beaver aircraft from Seattle to Cape Town and flew between game preserves, recording their experiences, and connecting with Museum visitors.

The Museum was the virtual home for the Safari and featured a range of online activities and simulated flights in our Aviation Learning Center linked to this amazing adventure.
