Air museum puts flight in perspective

June 26, 2011

NORTH KINGSTOWN – When visitors pour into the Quonset Air Museum this weekend they will see everything from a small balsa wood model of the Wright Brothers’ plane in a showcase to the giant TBM-3 Avenger – the same type of aircraft George H.W. Bush bailed out of as it crashed into the sea during World War II.
Although it’s open year round, this tribute to the history and genius of aircraft design receives its biggest audience – upwards of 1,000 – during the Quonset Air Show. This year’s event, celebrating the centennial of Naval aviation, starts at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
