March 2014 Guessing Game, pt. 1

How good are your detail and pattern recognition skills?  Today, and the next two Fridays, the museum is going to post pictures of things from the museum’s collection.  These three items all have something in common.  The first person to email Maria at mariav@modelaircraft.org with the correct answer on what the common trait is will receive recognition on the museum’s blog and Facebook.  Answers need to be received by March 27, 2014.

The winner and the answer will be posted on March 28th.
