Featuring selections from the extensive Vail Rare Book Collection and Vail Collection of Aeronautical Prints, Broadsides and Clippings, Come Fly Away is a window into hundreds of years of human interest in flight.
These collections, presented to MIT in 1912 by Theodore N. Vail, former president of AT&T and member of the MIT Corporation, range from the delightfully fanciful to factual depictions of historic events.
