Most of the space suit Ohio native Neil Armstrong wore when he became the first person to walk on the moon is now on display at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport, after being moved from the Cincinnati Museum Center.

The suit's gloves and helmet are now on display at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.. This week marks the 47th anniversary of Armstrong's walk on the lunar surface.
