D-Day, observed annually on June 6, brings overwhelming memories of the brave men and women who fought a strategically planned and well-executed battle that ultimately led to the end of the Second World War. More than 75 years after the end of World War II, these memories remain fresh to the over 300,000 living U.S. veterans of the war. The rest of us look to their legacy and the rich history of events told through museums and memorials. There is not a more important time than today for us to remember and honor them as we reflect on D-Day, June 6, 1944.
Through an ongoing partnership with KeyBank, the New England Air Museum will continue to waive the admission fee for all veterans and military service members throughout 2022. The museum thanks KeyBank for making this opportunity possible, and we thank all those who serve or have served in the military for their dedication and sacrifice.
The New England Air Museum’s collection contains over 100 aircraft ranging from early flying machines to supersonic jets. Over 55 aircraft are on display in three large exhibit hangars and in an outdoor display area (open depending on weather) while other are in storage and restoration hangars.
