I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. During the past year, I have been to about six different air museums located in the eastern US and the New England Air Museum is one of the better ones with significant space and proper lighting for many aircraft, both civilian and military. The aircraft outside was in good shape for the most part and I really enjoyed sneaking into the reclamation yard to take some detailed shots of two F-102A wrecks for a book project that I am doing. They have done a great job at this museum!

I am interested in selling my late father's log books. He was involved in spitfire/hotspur tow experiments. I have set up a blog with more information at Perhaps some of you visiting this excellent site might like to have a look.

Have visited the museum twice, and was impressed the same number of times. Had an opportunity to visit the restoration hangar, and every question I had was answered politely and succinctly. I will visit again.

I found out a lot on your website. It was detailed to perfection and it had loads of pictures, the layout of the website was very neat.

I Like all the oddball aircraft in the outdoor exhibits! Some interesting tid-bits of history, a tornado destroyed a lot of the aircraft that the museum used to have, like a C-133.

I've ever been to only one aircraft museum--this one--so weight my opinion accordingly, but I think this museum is great. As I recall, the indoor displays were especially good, all gussied up and made accessable in parts of special interest by scaffolds and stairs. The outdoor displays, by comparison, seemed just a peg above a junkyard, but what glorious junk--flyable metal in a fantastic variety of shapes and sizes. By the way, I AM LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ABOUT B-52 LONG RANGE SIGHTING SYSTEMS SO THAT I CAN BUILD AN ASTRONOMICAL SCOPE OR BINOC WITH THESE TWO 12" BK-7 LENSES I HAVE, SUPPOSEDLY MADE FOR SUCH A SYSTEM(S). THANKS!
