Historic Learjet Retired to Armstrong Museum

A Learjet 28 Longhorn, the first of its type, will be flown to Neil Armstrong Airport in New Knoxville, Ohio on August 5, (which would have been Armstrong’s 90th birthday) where Kevin Hayward, President and CEO of Ox Industries, will donate it to the Armstrong Air & Space Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio.

The aircraft made history in 1979 when it garnered five FAI and NAA records with Neil Armstrong and Learjet test pilot, Pete Reynolds, aboard.  It will join the first aircraft that Armstrong ever flew, a 1946 Aeronca 7AC Champion, at the museum.
