On Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks will hold a special open-cockpit day for children and their dads.
Visitors can explore 10 vintage aircraft — including the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt of WWII, the Sikorsky HH-52 Coast Guard rescue helicopter, the Cold War era Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, the famous Douglas DC-3 airliner, the North America F-100 Super Sabre which is our nation’s first supersonic jet fighter — a full-motion flight simulator and two static flight simulators.
Sneakers or rubber-soled shoes are recommended.
The museum is by Bradley International Airport. Take I-91 north or south to exit 40 (Rt. 20 / Bradley Airport Connector) and then Rt. 75 north to the Museum.
