Sunday, March 6th, 2 p.m. on Zoom
The Stratford Library continues the new season of its popular “Sunday Afternoon Talks” series of informative and entertaining talks featuring prominent local guest speakers. The talks, currently presented on the Zoom format, are free and open to the public.
On Sunday the Stratford Library will discuss “The Lindbergh-Sikorsky Connection” featuring guest speaker Igor I. Sikorsky, Jr.
Aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky, Sr. had a lifelong interest in aviation history, and built and flew the first four engine aircraft in the world while in Imperial Russia in 1913. After being barred from his native country, Sikorsky became a leading engineer during the Amphibian era (1930s).
A retired attorney, Igor I. Sikorsky, Jr. will share how the ground-breaking efforts of early aviation served his father when he pioneered the helicopter in 1939. Sikorsky Jr. has served on numerous aviation museums and is the author of the recently published book detailing his father’s interactions with Charles Lindbergh, “The Lindbergh and Sikorsky Connection”.
The “Sunday Afternoon Talks” series, hosted by Charles Lautier of Stratford, is held from 2-3:30 p.m. on the Zoom platform. To register online and receive an invitation for the March 6th program visit: https://stratfordlibrary.libcal.com/event/8510203
