100 Years of Aviation at Plum Island

This online exhibition chronicles a century of aviation at Plum Island Airport through research, historic photographs, and personal accounts.

Kayla Haveles served as curator of this exhibition while an intern during the summer of 2010. Unless otherwise noted, all images appear courtesy of Plum Island Aerodrome.

Call for Pictures: We are looking for more pictures of the airport, particularly for the years from 1950 to 2000. A few of the themes of interest are Yankee Homecoming events at the airport, Santa Claus by air, and air shows and fly-ins. We would be interested in any pictures from these years, however, and would very much appreciate your help. Please contact Ken Turino at to discuss the best way to submit your photos.
