Where it all started for the 352nd

Postby skuzzr » Mon Jan 07, 2013 10:00 am

I just realized I live less than 2 hours away from all 3 fields that the fighter group was based at before going over seas Bradley Field in Ct,Westover Field in Westover Mass and Trumbull Ct (field name unknown). Think I'm going to set up a field trip for next weekend. I'll bring the camera just in case..

skuzzer dude
if you go to bradley there is the New England Air Museum to the north
really good place to go lots of good stuff. go to their website and find
out when they have an open cockpit day. you can get into the
cockpits of the p47, corsair, dc3, huey one of their jets (f100 i think)
and maybe now the b29. they were working on it the last time i was
there about 4 yrs ago. also at one time you could get in the link trainer,
use the nordern bomb sight and other good stuff. the last time i was there
they set up a gattling gun(the ones like helecopter guns) and demonstrated that.
if you go let me know maybe meet up there.
