When are the outside aircraft open for tours?

The C-141B Starlifter and C-130 Hercules are open for self-guided tours if weather permits. The C-141B is also wheelchair accessible. 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. For safety reasons, the aircraft are closed if their inside temperature exceeds 100°F, so plan to come early on hot days.
