Connecticut Air & Space Center Founder George “Doc” Gunther passes away

Connecticut Air & Space Center Founder George “Doc: Gunther has passed away. 

August 26th, 2012
From the Executive Director

The Connecticut Air & Space Center is very sad to announce that our founder, “Doc” Gunther passed away at 3am this morning, after a long battle with cancer.  Doc’s vision after Avco/Lycoming closed in Stratford, CT was to see a small part of Connecticut Aviation history left intact. He was the driving force behind protecting a small portion of the former Chance Vought / Sikorsky Plant. While the museum will morn his loss, we will strive to make his dream become out reality.
