Description

Winding through the Forest is Memory Lane, honoring those who have, or still are, contributing to all facets of aviation and aerospace. It is a five foot wide (wheel chair friendly) walk and embedded in the concrete walk are granite plaques engraved with the names of over 1200 honorees. Included in this illustrious list are markers memorializing such aviation notables as Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh, Jeana Yeager, Rajiv Gandhi, the Wright Brothers, Sally Ride, Chuck Yeager, Beryl Markham, General "Jimmy" Doolittle, President George H. W. Bush, General Colin Powell, and Lt Col (now Col) Eileen M. Collins, the first woman to pilot a shuttle (Discovery) into space. In 1976, Secretary of the Interior, Kleppe dedicated Memory Lane as the first National Recreation Trail in Kansas.
