Jerrie Mock Statue Unveiled At Port Columbus

Apr 18, 2014

Jerrie Mock's history-making flight has been memorialized with a newly unveiled statue at Port Columbus.

Mock was the first female pilot to fly around the world solo. She landed at Port Columbus 50 years ago yesterday. The bronze, life-sized statue unveiled yesterday depicts Mock holding a globe. The statue in the airport ticket lobby will eventually become part of a "Legacy of Leadership" exhibit.
