“Live the excitement generated by Charles Hamilton’s heroic flights over the New Britain fairgrounds in 1910 in this historical re-enactment program at the New England Air Museum,” museum officials say.
The part of Charles Hamilton will be played by Peter Hannon, a senior at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Performing Arts.
The one act play runs for 15 minutes. The performance is included in the cost of admission to the museum, which is the largest aviation museum in New England.
Located on the north end of Bradley International Airport, the museum features three hangars and an outdoor display, which contain more than 80 aircraft with permanent exhibits that include the oldest surviving aircraft in the U.S. – the 1870 Silas M. Brooks Balloon Basket — as well as an S-39 Amphibian plane, the first aircraft built in Connecticut by aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky.
