NEAM: 60 Years, 60 Stories celebrates the New England Air Museum's 60th anniversary by drawing upon the oral histories, archival records, and special talents of many individuals. This project would not have been possible without the generous contributions of the following friends and supporters of the museum, so it is with tremendous gratitude that we thank them here.
