At the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, we have a collection of how various weather conditions impact aviation. Airplanes are designed to be able to fly through, around or above various weather phenomena. Visit the General Aviation exhibit to see certain planes and how they are structured to withstand weather.
