Sandy Hook Students Get Chance to Smile at Sikorsky Airport

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.
