Sound Barrier

The other day I learned some really cool trivia when I was writing my Condor Flats post in my Lands of California Adventure series, and I decided that this would be great trivia to share for Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia!  So, I begged my friend Sheila from Cooking Underwriter to sacrifice and go to Disney’s California Adventure — I know, big sacrifice, right? — and get me some pictures.  All of the photos in this post are hers, and I am thankful to her for taking them and sending them to me!

The Fly ‘n’ Buy Souvenir shop, located in Condor Flats, fits the theming of this land perfectly.  Inside you will find some really cool stuff, and Sheila engaged Cast Member Jim from Brooklyn and learned a lot of great information.  Inside the store is a clock, a calendar from 1947, and a replica of an airplane.

The clock is frozen at the exact time when the sound barrier was broken by Chuck Yeager:

It looks to me like it was 10:27:30 in the morning.

The calendar is fixed on the date that the sound barrier was broken:

It’s a little hard to see, the according to some sources, the date is October 14th, 1947.  There is some contention that another broke the speed barrier prior to Yeager, but it is contended that that was done as part of a dive or something like that.

Lastly, this picture is a replica of the plane that Chuck Yeager flew to break the sound barrier.

Thank you for stopping by!  Now, please head on over and check out the rest of the entries, and thanks!
