VSCCA Gathering & Tech Session at the New England Air Museum

We have a fantastic program lined up at the New England Air Museum:

  • Open House from 9-11 in their restoration shop!  There will be volunteers working in the shop who will be glad to answer querstions.   This is a limited opportunity offered to the VSCCA that is not usually available to the general public. Check out this wonderful 7-minute video:  https://neam.org/pages/restoration-program.
  • Presentation by retired Pratt & Whitney engineer Carl Cruff who worked on their restoration of a DC-3  from 11-12.

This will be followed  by lunch and open touring of the museum.  There are over 100 aircraft such as early aircraft like Bleriot , WWII fighter planes, jets, helicopters, even a B-29 Superfortess you can go in.  There are also over 50 engines on display. 

You can also give a one of their Flight Sims a try, check out https://neam.org/pages/simulator (additional costs do apply).

The museum is located on the north side of Bradley Airport, located about halfway between Hartford and Springfield off I 91.  You can click here  36 Perimeter Rd, Windsor Locks, CT 06096 for GPS directions.
