Sikorsky VS-44 Flying Yacht. This is the last of four trans-Atlantic luxury planes created by Sikorsky. Originally developed for flights from the East Coast to Ireland they were put into transport duty in WWII and then returned to civilian use. This particular one was named Excambian and was used extensively in South America, southern California, and the Virgin Islands. It was damaged beyond repair in Charlotte Amalie and donated to the Naval Aviation Museum who then loaned it to the NEAM. Since Sikorsky is also located in Connecticut, restoration was led by past and present employees.
