Help bring the SST Concorde to ESAM
The Empire State Aerosciences Museum has the opportunity to aquire a half scale replica of the British Airways Supersonic Transport Concorde. The same Concorde displayed in New York City Times Square.
The 100 foot long replica is in Long Island, NY and ESAM needs to raise money to transport the aircraft 200 miles to the museum location in Glenville, NY. It's expected to take five trips as the aircraft is disassembled at this point in time.
Once this arrives in Glenville it will be restored and displayed in front of the museum's main hangar.
The attached photo is a rendering of what the front of the museum is expected to look like after the Concorde is restored and displayed.
Your help and support with this project is extremely appreciated.
ESAM has approximatly 40% of the Concorde ( wing tips, vertical fin and 33 feet of the nose section ) The "heavy" parts (center wing including the engine nacelles and the remaining 68 feet of fuselage remain). transportation being the issue. We expect 4 to 5 more truck trips aqt approximately $2000 per trip ! That should complete Phase 1 !
