Easter Bunny Visit

The Easter Bunny visited the Aviation Museum on Saturday, March 30, 2024

Instead of hopping, he came by student-built airplane!

On Saturday, March 30, the Easter Bunny visited the Aviation Museum of N.H., 27 Navigator Road, Londonderry, N.H.

The celebrated treat-bearing rabbit arrived on a student-built RV-12iS, a two-seat light sport aircraft completed by students at the Manchester (N.H.) School of Technology. 

The bunny’s arrival was accompanied by a water cannon salute courtesy the Manchester Airport Fire Department. 

After disembarking from the student-built plane, the Easter Bunny visited with fans, posed for pictures, and gave out candy including chocolate Easter treats from Granite State Candy Shoppe.

The Easter Bunny then left for his next engagement via a fire truck from the Manchester Airport Fire Department.

This year’s Easter Bunny’s appearance at the Aviation Museum is made possible in part by Granite State Candy Shoppe, with retail stores in Manchester and Concord; and also the Common Man Roadside family of convenience stores, which supplied hot coffee, apple cider, and donuts to guests free of charge. Thanks also to Easter Bunny pilot Bob Cronin and our friends at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport for making the bunny’s visit possible.

Below we’re posting two galleries of photos. The first shows highlights from the bunny’s visit. Many thanks to photographers who contributed to this gallery, including Steve Heffelfinger, Scott Smith, Lois Dziergowski, and Andrew Fournier. Enjoy!
