Open Cockpit Saturdays continue in September. Museum guests are treated to the extra special experience of being allowed to sit at the controls and pose for pictures. From 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each Saturday all September long, a selected aircraft will be opened up and made accessible to the public. Museum volunteers will also be on hand to answer questions and provide the historical back drop for the aircraft.

Guests are strongly cautioned to dress appropriately for climbing into the planes and also reminded not to leave their cameras at home. This is a rare experience that you’ll want to remember forever!
