“Adventures in Heroism” (Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum)
The Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum features the Intrepid, a World War II aircraft carrier. The museum on the west side of Manhattan has so much more, so a recent slogan has been added: "Adventures in Heroism."

http://www.intrepidmuseum.org/pages/about
One of the most successful ships in US History is now a national historic landmark, and one of the most unique attractions in New York City. In 1943, the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier was commissioned for service in World War II and went on to serve as a primary recovery vessel for NASA and then in Vietnam. Today the museum features a range of interactive exhibits and events that make Intrepid a snapshot of heroism, education, and excitement.

Since 1974, when Zachary Fisher saved the decommissioned Intrepid from being sent the scrap yard, the Intrepid has become a true icon. His vision to honor our heroes by making Intrepid a lasting memorial to those who sacrificed for our country continues to be realized through the Museum's mission to Honor our Heroes, Educate the Public, and Inspire our Youth.

Kids and adults alike find themselves immersed and inspired by the Intrepid Museum's exhibits, which range from thrilling historical re-creations such as Kamikaze: Day of Darkness, Day of Light, to relevant displays such as Intrepid Remembers 9-11 and Defending our Future. While here, you can also ride in the A-6 Cockpit Simulator, visit our Virtual Flight Zone, or tour the inside of the world's fastest commercial airplane, Concorde.

The hangar deck houses three of the legendary aircraft types which originally flew from the Intrepid during World War II — an original TBM Avenger torpedo bomber (on long term loan from the National Museum of Naval Aviation), and replicas of an F6F Hellcat fighter and an SB2C Helldiver dive bomber.

On the flight deck and portside aircraft elevator, America's modern military cutting edge is represented by a Navy F-14 Tomcat, an Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon (on long term loan from the National Museum of the United States Air Force), a Marine Corps aV-8C Harrier (on long term loan from the United States Marine Corps Air-Ground Museum), and an A-12 Blackbird spy plane (on long term loan from the National Museum of the United States Air Force) formerly in service with the CIA. During your visit, you'll also find international air power on display with a British F-1 Scimitar (on long term loan from the National Museum of Naval Aviation, Royal Navy of Great Britain), a French Entendard IV-M (on long term loan from the French Reserve Officer Association), and a Polish MiG-21.

The Intrepid's helicopter collection includes two Vietnam-era UH-1 Hueys, a Marine Corps AH-1J Sea Cobra (on long term loan from the United States Marine Corps Air-Ground Museum), and a fully restored Army AH-1G Cobra gunship.
