#NatsHats: Introduction

If you have to wear something on your head to keep the sun out of your eyes while flying, you might as well show off a bit of your personality at the same time, right?  Modelers of yesteryear certainly thought so!

Over the course of the 2014 Nats, the museum will share some of these shady styles from our collection.  Posts will occur every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, July 7 to August 8, 2014.  Visit the museum's facebook page, or follow along on the blog.
