The historic flight of “Lituanica” turns 90 this year. On that occasion, an interactive copy of the airplane of Steponas Darius and Stasys Girėnas landed on the Energy and Technology Museum roof terrace. Museum visitors will start the plane themselves and will briefly experience how the brave pilots felt when they embarked on a historic journey across the Atlantic in a small “Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker” plane.
Project presentation – on July 14th, 12 PM
“Lituanica” flight – July 15 1933 6.24 AM
“Why do we need parachutes? If “Lituanica” was only the property of Darius and Girėnas, then in trouble we would grab parachutes. But “Lituanica” is the identity and hope of all Lithuanians; we are determined to bring “Lituanica” safely to Kaunas or perish together.”

The exposition is open from July 14 during museum working hours.
