Aviation Museum's first-ever 'Festival of Planes' highlights vintage toys from Lindbergh to Luke Skywalker

It's a new holiday exhibit designed to make your imagination take flight.

The 'Festival of Planes,' a display of more than 3,000 vintage aviation toys and model aircraft, will open on Friday, Nov. 29 at the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire.

The walk-through exhibit features aviation-themed toys, models, puzzles, and promotional items from throughout the 20th century, from the Wright Brothers to such sci-fi favorites as Star Trek, Star Wars, and more.

"For a century now, children have been finding toy planes and model aircraft among their holiday gifts," said Jeff Rapsis, executive director of the Aviation Museum of N.H. "No matter what decade you grew up in, our 'Festival of Planes' exhibit will help you rediscover the toys that first acquainted you with the magic of flight."

The museum is open Fridays and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sundays 1 to 4 p.m. In addition, the museum will be open from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays during the holiday season for evening viewing of the 'Festival of Planes.'
