Check out the Foynes Flying Boat Museum, in Foynes, Ireland.  A great museum featuring their fantastic new exhibit – a full scale replica of the Boeing B314 “Yankee Clipper”.  This replica was created for the museum from detailed plans by a team specialising in movie sets, and the reviews they have received of the aircraft are fantastic.

His love of flying and community included Master of the Lorillard Masonic Lodge, Cub Scout pack 146 Cubmaster in Tuxedo, NY, and membership in the Experimental Aircraft Association. He loved flying his private aircraft with his sons, enjoyed building a World War 1 fighter aircraft replica, and appreciated the beauty of nature.
