Open Cockpit Saturdays: P-47 Thunderbolt

July 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Republic P-47 Thunderbolt

Museum guests are treated to the extra special experience of being allowed to sit at the controls and pose for pictures. From 10:00-12:00 each Saturday, a selected aircraft will be opened up and made accessible to the public. Museum Volunteers will also be on hand to answer questions and provide the historical back drop for the aircraft you are sitting in.

Guests are strongly cautioned to dress appropriately for climbing into the planes and also reminded not to leave their cameras at home. This is a rare experience that you’ll want to remember forever.

Suggested $5 donation for the open cockpit experience includes souvenir Air Museum provided photograph. Air Museum admission also applies. The Palm Springs Air Museum reserves the right to refuse access to anyone deemed to be a hazard to themselves, other guests/staff and/ or the aircraft.
