The museum displays the cockpit section of the ZPG-2 Snow Bird,  which on March 15, 1957, established a long-distance unrefueled flight record when it landed at Naval Air Station Key West, Florida, after traveling a distance of 9,448 miles.  During the flight, it spent 264.2 hours straight in the air.  President Dwight D.
