June 4 2016 – “The Wonder of Flight – from Birds to Drones”

The Wonder of Flight as part of Trail Days

The morning was spent at the Nature Center with demonstrations, models and a simulator where people were given the opportunity of “flying” a plane or drone.
In the afternoon, demonstrations were held showing  gliders, acrobatic planes, helicopters and drones at the flying field.  Spectators were given the opportunity to try their hand at actually flying a radio controlled model using the “buddy box” system.

Senator Tony Hwang (28th CT State Senate) also attended and has posted some photos. Click on this link for photos from the Airshow on June 4, 2016 at Sherwood Island.
