A couple of weeks ago, Bruce and I went to the New Jersey Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum at the nearby Teterboro Airport. It's a pretty old airport, dating back to the earliest days of flight, and it was fun to learn about some of the important moments in local aviation history, including the explosion of the airship Hindenburg in 1937 and Charles Lindbergh's famous solo non-stop flight from nearby Long Island, NY to Paris in 1927.
Our guide was a charming WW2 vet named Stewart Golding. Mr. Golding was a flight engineer in Europe during the War, and had his own stories to tell, as well as the stories of some of the great aviators of the past. We learned a little about some of the different types of aircraft: military, private, and commercial.
I put a few photos together for your viewing enjoyment.
