Wow–these were the days! Digging through our archive we found a picture of our first store in 1986 that was on 595 Broadway in New York. We were the first themed, fashion store on Broadway, with a real T-6 Aircraft inside. Now you can visit the aircraft at the American Airpower Museum in Long Island and we've moved uptown to 15 W 39th St. Anyone else remember the old store?
At Cockpit USA, our mission is to honor the bravery of the military forces who have served our nation and to preserve their heritage and memory in the form of our iconic apparel collections. In alignment with our goals are those of the Intrepid, Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City. Located on the aircraft carrier Intrepid (CVS-11), a vessel which proudly served the country and is now a historical landmark, the museum is considered a learning hub and a tribute to all uniformed service men and women. With nearly two dozen aircrafts on show on the flight deck, a Combat Information Center and Pilot Ready Room, the museum's exhibits serve as an interactive experience of the science and history of yesteryear. Over ten million visitors have treaded the decks of the Intrepid since its opening in 1982, proving the unfaltering intrigue with our country's proud heritage.
To mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of its monumental Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, The New York Library is exhibiting the best of its collections to the public. The richly varied display of 'Celebrating 100 Years' includes significant relics of American history, from the handwritten diary on which Jack Kerouac based his infamous Beat novel On The Road to the first Gutenberg Bible brought into the country and the final draft of George Washington's farewell address. The centennial commemorative exhibition also explores the changing modes of communication, from samples of Sumerian cuneiform tablets, one of the earliest forms of writing to T. S. Eliot’s typescript of “The Wasteland” with notes by Ezra Pound. Divided into four sections, Observation, Contemplation, Society, and Creativity, the free exhibition gives an intriguing insight into the ever evolving face of human culture and upholds the library's philosophy that 'all knowledge is worth preserving'; something that we at Cockpit USA know all about!
