Located just steps away from the Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks CT, the New England Air Museum is a hidden gem. Beyond what you might expect, there are over 70 aircraft and engines, a myriad of family activities, and various unique events held throughout the year. You can try your hand at the flight simulator, you can participate in the RC swap meet, and most especially have the unique opportunity of climbing inside one of the many planes on display like the F-100A in the picture below. And yes, you can even purchase surplus inventory for that restoration job you have been working on. This family friendly excursion makes for a comfortable day trip from anywhere in Connecticut.
