Travel forward on the wings of history
Did you know the first flying field in New England was on the sand dunes and marshes of Plum Island Beach? An aeroplane called the Flying Fish pioneered the way in 1910, running test flights on a wooden runway at the Plum Island Airport.
With a past like this, AirNav 2B2 is now owned by Historic New England, and you can visit the Burgess Aviation Museum to learn more about the airport’s World War II activity, as well as its star appearance in the 1942 movie, “Wake Island.”
