The New England Air Museum, Aircraft of the Week
August 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT
Join us for an in-person follow-up to aircraft of the week. Meet our Loadmaster restoration crew and learn more about this iconic aircraft!
While most aircraft designs have circular cross-section fuselages, the Burnelli has a 20 foot wide rectangular cross-section. The fuselage is in the shape of an airfoil which allows it to assist the wings in providing lift. This results not only in a wide-body cabin, but also gave the plane impressive performance.
