Invisible plane to be showcased at Museum of Flight

SEATTLE – The Museum of Flight will be opening a special three-day exhibit of Wonder Woman’s famed invisible plane in its Side Gallery beginning Monday, Museum officials announced. The aircraft is the original iteration of the renowned superhero’s plane – a propeller-driven craft that had a cruising speed of more than 2,000 mph and was able to make trans-Atlantic flights without refueling. “It’s an incredible honor to have this aircraft in the Museum, even for a short visit,” said Director of Marketing Mike Bush. “If it can inspire even one youngster to wear the stars and stripes to protect the citizenry of the world, then we’ve done our job.”
