Troves of once-classified documents and never-seen-before photos showcasing Southern California’s aerospace industry are now on display at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in San Marino.

The exhibition opened to the public last weekend.

Located in the west hall of the library, crowds can see how the aerospace industry evolved over the years: from the dare-devil barnstormers to Cold War spy planes to moonshot rocketry.

A story in Saturday’s Times gave a preview of the event and explained how it came to fruition.

For a sneak peek, take a look at the photo gallery here and in the the video above.
