Open Cockpit Day at the New England Air Museum
January 15 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Open Cockpit Day will be held at the New England Air Museum on January 15, 2022 from 10 am to 2 pm.
This event will be staffed with more docents than usual, giving us the opportunity to open as many cockpits as possible- including special open cockpit aircraft.
Special activities include climb aboard experiences in historic aircraft; flight simulators; hands-on Build & Fly Challenges, and much more! A variety of aircraft will be open for visitors including the WWII era Republic P-47D, the Vietnam War era Bell UH-1B “Huey” helicopter, as well as supersonic jet fighters including the North American F-100 Super Sabre jet fighter and the Lockheed F-104C Starfighter.
The Open Cockpit program runs from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with the Museum and the Wings ‘n Things Gift Shop staying open until 5:00 p.m. Sneakers or rubber-soled shoes are recommended.
