The Air Mobility Command Museum is starting its 2022 Open Cockpit Day on Saturday, April 16. This event is repeated every third Saturday of the month through October. However, it will not occur on May 21st as it coincides with the Air Show.
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.
