Member Trip – Intrepid: Sea, Air & Space Museum
October 2, 2019
Join us for a trip to visit the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City.
The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is an American military and maritime history museum located on the west side of Manhattan at Pier 86. The museum showcases the National Historic Landmark aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, the cruise missile submarine USS Growler, a Concorde SST, a Lockheed A-12 supersonic reconnaissance plane, and the Space Shuttle Enterprise. All five of the U.S. armed forces are represented as well as several international air craft. The collection reflects some of the greatest achievements in military aviation.
Our day will begin early at 8 a.m. at Mystic Seaport Museum as we board our bus to New York City. Members will have time on their own at the museum before our scheduled lunch, which will be served on the ship’s mess deck. Following lunch, our group will enjoy a private tour of Intrepid, which will highlight stories from the ship’s history with particular attention to events occurring from 1943 through 1974. We’ll explore the hangar deck, where aircraft were maintained and stored, and the flight deck, where thousands of aircraft were launched. The tour requires long periods of walking and standing. Lightweight, portable stools are available upon request. Please let us know if you are interested in one of these stools when registering for the trip.
