In this golden era there were many records set for distance, speed, and altitude; there have been multiple records set in various new aircraft in the same categories since that time.
For this activity, explore a selection of record setting events between the golden age and a later period of your choice. Use information from a credible source to compare and contrast your selection of record setting events for the Golden Age and the chosen period (within the last 180 days).
In your initial post (must be 150 words), show a clear connection between the news story/event and the course materials. If there is no connection to course materials, you will lose 40 points. State the title of the news story and include the link so that others can access the story. You may apply any lens you wish to use when constructing this assignment: historic, scientific, technological, engineering, or math. Summarize the story and explain the cause and effect relationships for your chosen area (lens) of aviation for this assignment.
Be sure to use an in-text citation at the end of each sentence
