It’s been just a few days north of a year since the Space & Rocket Center’s very first crowdsourcing campaign, Land a Shuttle Training Aircraft at the Space & Rocket Center, successfully raised $71,340 from 307 donors on Indiegogo in an effort to bring a Shuttle Training Aircraft to the Space & Rocket Center.

Things have been pretty quiet since!

Though the last status update to the campaign was made ten months ago, things haven’t been completely at a standstill.

In fact, just the other day, they finally broke ground!  It was a long journey to get to this point, to be sure, but things are progressing!

No word yet on whether or not the aircraft will be here in time for the Alumni Festival in July, but there is hope!
