Museum officials are flying high as the Empire State Aerosciences Museum in Glenville are receiving a trio of historical aircraft from the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City. The aircraft need to relocate in order to make room for the Space Shuttle Enterprise that is coming from the Smithsonian in Washington.

 

The planes include a Supermarine Scimitar F.1 British Royal Navy fighter bomber, a Douglas F3D-2 (F-10) Skyknight and a Mikoyan Gurevich MIG-15 aircraft.

The trio of planes are on their way up the Hudson arriving in the Port of Albany on Sunday. The planes will be at the port for a while until the Erie Canal opens for the season. History buffs will be able to view the planes as the barge will make stops in Troy and Schenectady then will get unloaded near the Lighthouse Restaurant next to Freeman's Bridge.  The planes will be put on flatbed trucks and travel up route 50 to the museum.

Meanwhile the Intrepid will be making room for the Enterprise Space Shuttle. The shuttle arrives at JFK on Monday, it will be brought to a temporary pavilion until it gets permanently loaded on the Intrepid.
