The Most Remarkable Globe in The World Is in a Brooklyn Office Building

The Fliers and Explorers Globe is located in the modest headquarters of the American Geographical Society. The globe is just a standard schoolroom model but what makes it remarkable is that it has been signed by virtually every famous aviator and explorer in modern history. From Amelia Earhart to Charles Lindbergh to Sir Edmund Hillary, the heroes not only signed their names but also drew their routes upon the globe.
