Our newest aircraft, the Douglas F4D Skyray, is now on display on the flight deck! This exact aircraft flew from Intrepid during the Cold War and is the 28th plane in the Intrepid Museum's aircraft collection.

On July 2021, the Skyray was transported to the Museum in a multi-step journey over land and sea, then craned onto Intrepid's flight deck. For 11 months, our restoration team worked on preserving this historic aircraft so that visitors can learn from it for decades to come.
The acquisition of Skyray was made possible by the estate of Margaret F. "Peggy" Donovan, a longtime member and supporter of the Intrepid Museum. To learn more about supporting the Intrepid Museum with a planned gift, visit our Legacy Society page.

Stage 1

During late July, the Skyray will be loaded onto a flatbed tractor trailer for an over-the-road journey of about 25 miles . The Skyray’s 25 foot wingspan will overhang the trailer sides considerably. This will require a careful route plan and an escort by the Connecticut State Police. This road journey will take the Skyray from the airport to a preselected pier along the Connecticut River, near Hartford.

Stage 2

After its flatbed ride and arriving at the pier near Hartford. The Skyray was transferred to a barge to begin its three-day (30-hour trip) journey down the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound to its new home at the Intrepid Museum.
