The Connecticut Air & Space Center is proud to present the eighth annual:
CORSAIR CAR SHOW
PLANES – CARS – CYCLES – FOOD – MUSIC – FAMILY FUN!
A fundraiser for the Sikorsky Memorial Corsair Restoration by the Connecticut Air & Space Center!
We’ll see you at the eighth annual Corsair Car Show! See spectacular classic cars, hot rods, imports, dragsters, muscle cars, motorcycles (1980’s & older), military vehicles, and of course historic aircraft!
$5 Spectator Walk-In Entry
(12 and Under Free)
$10 Car Show Entry Fee
(The $10 donation pays for the entry fee of the driver. All other occupants will be charged.)
We ask you consider donating to the Connecticut Air & Space Center, a noteworthy non-profit air museum. The following aircraft will be on display:
1. No.21 Whitehead Flyer “Condor”
2. Vought / Goodyear FG-1D Corsair
3. Sikorsky S-52
4. Sikorsky S-55/H-19B
5. Sikorsky S-60 Flying Crane Prototype
6. Sikorsky S-76A
7. OH-6 Cayuse
But most importantly funds are needed for the important restoration of the Historic 1929 Curtiss Aircraft Hangar. The hangar (located behind The Windsock) needs your donations to bring it back to it’s original Golden Age condition when the likes of Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Howard Hughes, Juan Trippe, and other famous aviators visited the field, and hangared their planes there.
When finished, the Curtiss Hangar will be a regional educational cultural center dedicated to honoring the pioneers, companies, and workers in aviation, preserving the aircraft and artifacts they used, and educating this and future generations on our rich collective aviation history. Help us make our dream a reality! Give today!
