Open Cockpit Days at Flying Leatherneck Museum
The Flying Leatherneck Museum in MCAS Miramar showcases the history and story of Marine aviators and magnificent ground crews who flew and maintained the historic aircraft. Known for their feats of daring on the battlefield, they have a well-earned reputation as phenomenal flyers as well. Enjoy and admire nearly 30 vintage aircraft as well as numerous artifacts and pictures. While you’re at the Flying Leatherneck Museum spend some time in the research library to learn even more about the contributions Marine aviators have made to America’s freedom.
When you come out to the Flying Leatherneck Museum during the summer months, you can sit in the cockpit and feel like a real pilot at Open Cockpit Days! Take your little kids — and big kids — to enjoy a free day out in the sun. When you attend this year’s Open Cockpit Days, visit the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum on Facebook to post your future aviator piloting an F/A 18! Open Cockpit Days for 2016 are:
