Open Cockpit Day
March-November—Every third Saturday

On every third Saturday of the month, between March and November, the museum opens up some of its more impressive planes for guided tours. These aircraft will be opened to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. if weather permits and tour guides are available.

Open Aircraft Day

Open Cockpit Day

Event Date: Saturday, 18 July 2015 at 10:00 a.m.
Location: Air Mobility Command Museum
Address: 1301 Heritage Rd, Dover AFB, DE 19902

The Air Mobility Command Museum is starting its 2015 Open Cockpit Day on Saturday, March 21. This event is repeated every third Saturday of the month through November.

Open Cockpit Day provides the public full access to many of the museum’s aircraft from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. if weather permits and tour guides are available. Tour guides are stationed in the open aircraft to describe the history of the planes and their missions. They are often retired crew members of these airplanes so their descriptions are from personal experience and bring the aircraft to life for visitors.

For more information please email Mike Leister, Director. You may request a tour of an aircraft on a day other than Open Aircraft Day by emailing Paul George, Tour Scheduler. (Aircraft that may not be toured: A-26, B-17 (physically fit DVs only), C-45, CG-4A, HH-43, F-101, F-106, TG-4, BT-13, PT-17, and T-33)

Update: Our C-5A Galaxy is undergoing some conservation work and is being repainted. There is a possibility that it will not be available on Open Aircraft Days, the third Saturday of July. It is very likely that it will not be open for tours on weekdays while it is being painted. We apologize for any inconvenience but this is being done for the long term protection of this unique artifact aircraft.
