4. One of the Hangers is Still Filled with Antique Planes

The C-47 Skytrain played a critical role in World War II and was the workhorse of the Allied air effort.

While most of the hangers in Floyd Bennett Field go unused, Hanger B still harkens back to the old days of aviation and wonder. Through HARP (the Historic Aircraft Restoration Project), planes from  decades’ past are given new life in this abandoned hanger. Thanks to a team of devoted volunteers, these planes are tirelessly worked on, researched, and preserved all to keep history present and let the general public interact with the past.

Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday anyone who can make it to Hangar B in Floyd Bennett Field can take a look at these mechanical marvels and the work of these devoted volunteers.
