Flying Santa Continues Mission

Santa dropped by Castine on Dec. 3, and reportedly was seen at lighthouses and Coast Guard stations in southern New England and New York this past weekend.

Flying Santa has been visiting lonely outposts along the New England coast by airplane and helicopter since 1929. The lights are no longer manned, but the tradition continues thanks to the efforts of Friends of Flying Santa. Visit their website for a full history of the program, photographs from past Maine visits, and opportunities to support their mission.
