The grand opening of the new National Air and Space Museum Restaurant is celebrated with a ribbon-cutting, an enormous cake made in the shape of the restaurant, prizes, and a food trivia quiz. The architectural firm of Hellmuth, Obata, and Kassabaum, which designed the museum, developed the design. Construction on the addition to the museum, which seats 960, began in March of 1987. The facility included a self-service cafeteria, "Flight Line," and a full-service dining room, "Wright Place."
