Jerrie Mock Google Earth Flight at The Works Museum · · PAGE 20.
June 18, 2016: I was distracted while at the
exhibit upstairs and had to get back down to the meeting room as I was few minutes late
for my 10 AM scheduled start time. There were a number of folks who were interested
in how I created the Google Earth flight for Jerrie Mock. Here is a cell phone photo
taken during my presention of how to use Google Earth to get close-up views during any of
the Jerrie Mock flights. The image projected in the photo below is from my 15-minute
movie I made using Google Earth Pro. The movie was made for the exhibit dedicatiion

US Air Force.
That black and white photo stand is the real height of Jerrie Mock. I

The man talking to Chris is Art Weiner, a former US Air Force officer who
created the flight plans for Jerrie's flights around the world in 1964. He was 30
years old at that time.
Art attended my presentation and answered some questions for me. This
cell phone image and similar ones above were provided by Ruth Jacobs.
