One event on June 17, 2018 at 10:00am
Treat your father to the Museum’s Open Cockpit Day and let him climb aboard cockpits of historic airplanes and helicopters. A variety of aircraft will be open for visitors including the WWII-era Republic P-47D “Thunderbolt,” the Vietnam War era Bell UH-1B “Huey” helicopter, as well as supersonic jet fighters including the North American F-100A “Super Sabre” and the Lockheed F-104C “Starfighter.” There will also be special activities that include climb aboard experiences in historic aircraft; flight simulators, hands-on Build & Fly Challenges, and much more!
Climb aboard cockpits of historic airplanes and helicopters and play pilot. New this year, we will challenge our visitors to Paper Airplane flights. On the new mezzanine in the Civil Aviation Hangar, make an airplane and launch it from above to see how far it flys!
The Open Cockpit program runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the Museum and the Wings ‘n Things Gift Shop staying open until 5:00 p.m. Sneakers or rubber-soled shoes are recommended. Food for purchase will be available.
