Saturday the R2 Builders of Connecticut attended Space Expo at the New England Air Museum. Two of our R2-D2’s were on display for photos and interaction with attendees. Over 1000 visitors came out to partake in presentations and demos from various aerospace companies and organizations. The 501st Connecticut Garrison along with members of the New England Garrison came out to patrol the museum as well. Death Vader along with a showcase of Storm troopers were on hand for photo ops.
This was the second year we have been invited out to the expo and look forward to attending in the years to come.
