STRATFORD - Nearly two dozen students from Sandy Hook Elementary School got a private tour of the Connecticut Air and Space Center in Stratford today.

The honor included a surprise visit from a Black Hawk helicopter crew, who landed there just for the occasion.

Officials say the event was part of an effort to let the children have a good time following the deaths of 20 classmates and six faculty members. Parents say there is no doubt today's adventure lifted their spirits.
