New York Aircraft Production during World War II

Wings of Victory: Aircraft Manufacturing in New York State During World War II: the first in our series of Saturday programs, January 29th at 2PM at the Museum. All programs are FREE and open to the General Public. Attendance limited to 40. The Winter/Spring 2022 Programs are sponsored by the Friends of the New York State Military Museum with generous support from Stewarts Shops.

Historian Patrick Chaisson examines aircraft production in New York State during the Second World War, tracing the development of such legendary warbirds as the Grumman Hellcat and Republic Thunderbolt fighter plans and many of the lesser-known aviation companies who did their part to help win victory.
