Join us on Wednesday June 19, 2019 from 7 PM to 8PM for a program focused on Bradley airport with popular lecturer Bob Bell, former president of the Valley Railroad Company that operates the Essex Steam Train and Riverboat.

Who was Eugene Morris Bradley, and why was the airport named after him? Did you know that Bradley airport started out as a training base for air combat units, and served as a camp for German prisoners of War during World War II? And that attempts were made to camouflage the new airport as farm fields, which got pilots lost during World War II?

Bell will share stories and reminiscences of the airport in earlier years and even disclose some plans for its future in his multi-media presentation. The program follows a short annual meeting.

As a special one-night deal, purchase Thomas C. Palshaw’s Bradley Field:  The First 25 Years for $7.50 (normally retails for $15).

$6 adults, $5 seniors and students, WHS members FREE
