Following the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy last week, we are thankful to report that all at Cockpit USA HQ and the American Airpower Museum are safe, well and back in operation. Although our head office in Manhattan was left in the dark and without power for a week, Sandy’s 80-90 mph gusts and relentless showers did not manage to cause any major damage to the Farmingdale area, leaving the AAM relatively unscathed. Although closed in the interest of safety and with only minor electrical issues, the WWII fleet of aircraft and hangar were all accounted for and unaffected. Grateful for the minimal damage caused, our thoughts at this time are with all those left less fortunate in the wake of the storm and the first responders and volunteers hard at work to get the East Coast back on track.
