A while ago, on a spring day, a few members of EAA Chapter 87 joined up with a members of Chapter 1210 for a trip to the New England Air Museum at Bradley Field, Windsor Locks, Connecticut. The museum includes over 75,000 square feet of exhibit space in two large buildings; one for military aviation and the other for civil aviation. A Vought-Sikorsky S-44A Flying Boat overshadows the rest of the exhibits, a project ten years in the making, was put on display in October of 1998. Members of Chapter 1210 had the pleasure of touring the work hangar while the restoration was in progress. Its a beautiful aircraft and a job well done.
