Gunther from the Connecticut Air and Space Center for coming out and sitting in the heat and working together to help raise money and awareness to this great project.
Jerry O’Neill and his Airdales, Three Wing Aviation and Vlad at Sikorsky Memorial Airport made the event safe and fun and lent a big hand in the transportation of equipment. I would like to also than the Discovery Museum for making the event possible. Lastly, to all the Corsair Owners and Pilots who got their birds onto the tarmac for the week end and providing such a moving sight on all three days.
