First flying in 1929 this unassuming monoplane changed the face of aviation by opening the market of private aircraft ownership. This example was acquired by the Smithsonian in 1946. Restored in 1976 it was only briefly displayed here but it was later moved to the Udvar Hazy Centre.

The Northrop M2-F3 was a heavyweight lifting body rebuilt from the Northrop M2-F2 after it crashed at the Dryden Flight Research Center in 1967. It was modified with an additional third vertical fin - centered between the tip fins - to improve control characteristics. The "M" refers to "manned" and "F" refers to "flight" version.

SpaceShipOne is an experimental air-launched rocket-powered aircraft with sub-orbital spaceflight capability at speeds of up to 900 m/s (3,000 ft/s), using a hybrid rocket motor. The design features a unique "feathering" atmospheric reentry system where the rear half of the wing and the twin tail booms folds 70 degrees upward along a hinge running the length of the wing; increasing drag while remaining stable.

A two seat version of the Gamma 2A, the Polar Star attempted the world's first trans-Antarctic flight on November 23, 1935. Explorer Lincoln Ellsworth and Canadian pilot Herbert Hollick-Kenyon left Dundee Island for Little America station but ran out of fuel on the last leg of the journey 25 miles short of Little America. They walked that last distance and settled in the abandoned camp until rescued two months later. The airplane was later recovered and donated to the Smithsonian.
