Jerrie Mock Google Earth Flight at The Works Museum PAGE 20.

June 18, 2016:  I was distracted while at the exhibit upstairs and had to get back down to the meeting room as I was few minutes late for my 10 AM scheduled start time.   There were a number of folks who were interested in how I created the Google Earth flight for Jerrie Mock.  Here is a cell phone photo taken during my presention of how to use Google Earth to get close-up views during any of the Jerrie Mock flights.  The image projected in the photo below is from my 15-minute movie I made using Google Earth Pro.   The movie was made for the exhibit dedicatiion day use.  I answered questions and demonstrated the night arrival back at Columbus while streaming online images from Google Earth.

This image was taken by Ruth Jacobs showing the first day landing at Bermuda from my movie.

Upstairs some people were getting into the airplane to get the feel of how much space Jerrie had on her long trip.  I want to point out Jerrie was barely five feet tall.

And here is the sign after I removed some reflections from the overhead lights.   The background image on the sign was from the day Jerrie went supersonic with the US Air Force.

That black and white photo stand is the real height of Jerrie Mock.  I mentioned before the airplane is on a steel mount that makes it higher than it would be on its real landing gear.

The man talking to Chris is Art Weiner, a former US Air Force officer who created the flight plans for Jerrie's flights around the world in 1964.  He was 30 years old at that time.

Here is my photo of Art Weiner taken at the same time as those from Ruth seen above.  He was telling us stories of his time in the US Air Force over his 30-year military career.
