Witnessing History Take Flight
This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit the
Collings Foundation, headquartered in Stow, MA, to see firsthand some of the
historical transportation-related antiques that continue to be preserved and
maintained. Since 1979 the Collings Foundation
has been organizing events across the country to bring to life transportation
relics to enable Americans the opportunity to learn more about their heritage
Some events include antique car rallies, hill climbs, carriage and sleigh rides, a winter ice-cutting festival, air shows, and joint museum displays. If given the opportunity you may see anything from an antique biplane to WWII fighter aircrafts to “Indy” race cars. The Collings Foundation’s collection of vintage transportation-related vehicles is quite fascinating, and I encourage everyone to stop by one of their shows to see history in action.
