The plane that broke the sound barrier is now breaking ground inside the Stafford Air and Space Museum.
Due to arrive this month, the newest exhibit to be permanently featured inside the Stafford Museum, is the highly anticipated, high-fidelity, full scale replica of the Bell X-1. Nicknamed the “Glamorous Glennis” and flown by Pilot Chuck Yeager, the X-1 broke the sound barrier, reaching speeds of over 950 mph in October 1947.

“There are so many small places, shops and museums and such across America, and this is one that desires a stop in. Who knew Tom Stafford grew up in this little town. Very nice, and interesting museum.”
“We stopped in Weatherford on our way through Oklahoma and saw the reviews on TripAdvisor – it is worth stopping for 100%! The exhibits wear simply amazing. Gemini rockets – space capsules and rockets – with some things on loan from the Smithsonian – simply incredible! It is a museum for ALL ages and the displays are spot on close up and soooo interesting to see. Don’t miss this!!!
