Housed inside McCarran International Airport, the Howard W. Cannon Aviation Museum presents the history of commercial and general aviation in southern Nevada, from the first flight in 1920 through the introduction of jets. The museum’s main exhibit is located above baggage claim with additional exhibits located throughout the airport. Among the many interesting aviation artifacts, the main exhibit’s red 1956 Ford Thunderbird convertible is a favorite. The car was once owned by Alamo Airport (McCarran’s original name) founder George Crockett and was a fixture around the airport in the 1950s and ’60s.
