The Leonardo has launched its first crowdfunding campaign in support of its new, exhibit, FLIGHT, which opens in Utah in August 2016, the company said.
The exhibit is an experience into the world and ecosystem of flight. At the heart of the exhibit will be a fully restored C-131 aircraft which will hang from the ceiling of the museum and clear the walls on either side of the exhibit hall by a mere six inches.
Commissioned in the 1950´s, this aircraft has flown combat missions and was left abandoned in the Arizona desert before The Leonardo decided to make it the centerpiece of this newest exhibit.
Located in Salt Lake City, The Leonardo is Utah´s Center for Exploration that offers an ongoing calendar of public programs, workshops and classes.
