The students visiting Sikorsky Memorial Airport in Stratford, Conn., on Friday looked like any bunch of students on a school trip. As they toured a hangar looking at classic aircraft, they raced under a plane’s wings, acted as if they were pilots and looked a little bored as a volunteer explained the history of one of the planes.

But this wasn’t just any school group.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
