Palm Springs Air Museum celebrates Houdini among Jewish aviators

The Palm Springs Air Museum in Palm Springs, CA, currently has a special exhibition of 24 panels devoted to Jewish & Israeli Aviators and Astronauts. Among those celebrated is Houdini, who in 1910 became the first man ever to fly a plane in Australia. The exhibition opened February 21 and runs through March 20.

The exhibition was created by Jewish-Hungarian aviator LÁSZLÓ ANGYAL. This marks the first stop in a world-wide tour of the exhibition. The exhibition is located inside the European Hangar, surrounded by vintage World War Two warbirds, and is included with regular museum admission. All funds raised by the Palm Springs Air Museum are used for educational purposes. The mission of the Palm Springs Air Museum is to educate future generations about the role Air Power plays in preserving our freedoms and way of life; to preserve our history and to honor our veterans. Steve Geiger of the Mensch International Foundation is responsible for bringing in this exhibition.

The Palm Springs Air Museum is located at 745 N. Gene Autry Trail in Palm Springs, CA. It's open daily, 10 AM – 5 PM. For more information visit:
