Kimberly Anyadike always wanted to fly. As a child, she would spread her arms, take a bounce off the bed and try to catch air. This month, after three years of training, the 15-year-old will try to set a world record by becoming the youngest black female to pilot an airplane across the country. The Inglewood resident and student of Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum, which provides scholarships and after-school programs to aspiring aviators and at-risk youth in exchange for community service hours, will be joined in the cockpit by Tuskegee Airman Levi Thornhill.

Senior Daniel Lee from Crescenta Valley High, freshman Angus Crosby from Burbank High School and sophomore Chance Woods from Pasadena High School each placed first in their school districts for the airport's 2014 Tower Banner Student Art Contest, and will have 16-by-25-foot versions of their designs on display on a three-month rotation.
