Aviation Walk of Honor

North American P-51D Mustang

The etching above, taken from an illustration by artist Jean-Luc Beghin, depicts a P-51 Mustang cockpit. The airplane was designed and manufactured in only 100 days by North American Aviation located in El Segundo in 1940. North American Aviation produced a total of 15,000 P-51 Mustang planes which played an important strategic role in World War II. The P-51 Mustang is only one of many airplanes which were manufactured within the local region and signify the importance of the Southern California connection to aviation ingenuity and history.

The F/A-18 silhouetted sculpture and its P-51 cockpit represent the design and production mastery of three Southern California aeronautical giants: Northrop Grumman, McDonnell Douglas, and Rockwell (North American).

Flight Path Learning Center

A walk

through history, Flight Path honors people and places making the United States the world leader in aeronautics.
This rotunda symbolizes Southern California contributions to aviation/aerospace progress. The Flight Path highlights aeronautical history through plaques and exhibits where much of the world's aeronautical progress was achieved.
The initial plaques at four points of the compass honor names of world-famous Southern Californians who left indelible marks in aeronautical progress. Five plaques embedded along Sepulveda Boulevard make up the original group of Flight Path honorees.
The landing pattern of LAX, one of the world's busiest airports, is clearly visible. Aircraft from everywhere on the globe routinely arrive here, carrying passengers from every state and foreign land.
