Aircraft Museums within Easy Reach - Pics and Videos

Postby Neons » Thu Oct 15, 2015 7:31 pm

In the past years I have visited two of my favorite museums that are less than 2 hours ride away. The best one is the the Collins Foundation of Stow, MA if you are looking for variety. They have 3 event openings a year unless you have a large group by appointment. The second is about aircraft history. Bradley International Airport Museum in Windsor Locks, CT. They provide theme days at times like Open Cockpit Day.

I have been visiting both many times. I film whatever I can if time allows. Each video may have different subjects that change in the presentations. So by looking at them you will see more details in one movie over another. This year 20015 at the Collins I had to ration my battery as it ran low and I left my spare home. (Duh!). The Bradley had a fe different subjects and upgrades in some displays. They also had an extensive library of books for sale at a fraction of cost. I have videos posted in both YouTube and Vimeo. I would suggest if Vimeo has the same video use that source as it is of noticeably better quality. YouTube is OK quality. You have to remember to switch the tab in the lower right to better quality if it has it. If you are fortunate to have a subscription to this club website, post your videos here or in the different relative subject forum headers. Share the interests with others.

Here is a professional sampler.
