Sit in the drivers’ seat of airplanes, construction and military vehicles, and other heavy equipment at the New England Air Museum’s Open Cockpit and Touch A Truck event on Saturday, October 12 from 10 AM to 3 PM.

The Museum is partnering with a range of local organizations including the United States Air Force, USA Recycle and Embraer to showcase the area’s heavy equipment machinery. Visitors will have the chance to climb aboard historic aircraft including a WWII P-47 Thunderbolt, F-100 Super Sabre, and several vintage helicopters — all featured in the Museum’s extensive collection.
“Our Open Cockpit experiences bring the Museum alive,” says Executive Director Deborah Reed. “We’re thrilled to be working with several local organizations on this once-a-year event, and to provide experiences for guests to engage with and learn about transportation equipment.”
All activities are included with the cost of admission to the Museum: $15 for adults, $14 for seniors (ages 65+), $10 for youth (ages 4-14), children 3 and under are free. For more information about the event, visit www.NEAM.org.
