On Thursday, January 28, 2010 Lockheed Martin hosted a Preview Night of the Lockheed Martin Flight & Space exhibit for their employees and their families. Over 300 people attended the ribbon cutting ceremony followed by the IMAX® film, The Magic of Flight. The new exhibit was made possible with funding from Lockheed Martin Employees’ Federated Fund, Lockheed Martin MS2, and Lockheed Martin Corporate Foundation.  
Flight & Space is a one-of-a-kind experience. The $440,000 contribution from Lockheed Martin’s partnership has helped to build an exciting new learning experience for young people. The exhibit features a simulation of the cockpit of an F-16 jet, a control tower to teach visitors about navigational controls and radar systems in air travel, and a scale model of an Atlas V rocket. These types of interactive exhibits are the foundation of a complete learning experience on the history and innovations of flight and space.
“Lockheed Martin and its employees are proud to sponsor the MOST’s new Fight & Space Exhibit. We feel it is important to support institutions and programs that bring the excitement of science to life for young people,” said Carl Bannar, Vice President and General Manage of Lockheed Martin Radar Systems. “Fun, engaging education experiences, like this new exhibit inspire all of us to learn more and help create the new generation of engineers, scientists and teachers.”
“The level of this hands-on interactive exhibit makes FLIGHT & SPACE a one-of-a-kind adventure,” said Larry Leatherman, MOST President. “We aim to encourage discovery of science by placing control into the hands of our visitors.”
Congressman Daniel B. Maffei, New York State Senator David J. Valesky, Dr. Douglas H. Reep, Director of Airborne Early Warning Radar and Advanced Programs, Carl P. Bannar, Vice President and General Manager of Radar Systems, Gwyn K. Mannion and Jeff Rubenstein, Co-Chairs of the Making More of the MOST Capital Campaign were all present for the ribbon cutting ceremony that ended with a balloon rocket making its way toward the ceiling of the MOST.
