Located right at Bradley International Airport (BDL) in Windsor Locks, CT, The NE Air Museum (www.neam.org) consists of two large display hangars, and external compound and a restoration hangar and outbuildings. The main display hangars are clean, and full of aviation interest. The hangars are literally stuffed with aircraft. In the military hanger, they have a WWII B-29 Superfortress "Jack's Hack". On the civilian side, there is a VS-44 Flying Boat. There are Wright Brothers engine exhibits, a Pratt & Whitney exhibit, and an exhibit dedicated to Igor Sikorsky, among other things. This museum is an interesting place for anyone interested in aviation and/or military history.
