Intrepid moving aircraft to make room for space shuttle Enterprise, arriving this summer

NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is moving three aircrafts from its flight deck to make room for the space shuttle Enterprise.

The aircrafts will be hoisted on Wednesday morning by crane onto the pier and then a barge. They’ll be taken to the Empire State Aerosciences Museum in Glenville, New York.

They include a Supermarine Scimitar F.1 British Royal Navy fighter bomber, a Douglas F3D-2 (F-10) Skyknight and a Mikoyan Gurevich MIG-15 aircraft.

The Enterprise is scheduled to arrive at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on Monday. It will be brought to the Intrepid by barge in June and subsequently go on public display in a temporary pavilion.

The Intrepid is working on the Enterprise’s permanent location.
