    In honor of Armed Forces Day, the Museum will also be hosting an Open Cockpit Day where children of all ages can explore, climb into, or imagine what it would be like to soar through the skies in one of the many aircraft on the ramp. Guests will experience historic planes and displays representing over eight decades of aviation history, as well as a chance to view thrilling jets like a US Navy Blue Angels fighter, A-10 Thunderbolt, or a famous "Top Gun" F-14 Tomcat just like the movie.

    Guests at Armed Forces Day will learn about aircraft they may never have heard of before like a Voodoo, Warthog, Albatross, Boxcar, Dagger, or Grasshopper. Who knew aircraft with names such as this carried the heroes that helped to secure the freedoms we enjoy today?

    Activities are planned throughout the day, including an interactive remote control aircraft display by Mather Aerospace Modelers, entertainment by Band of the Golden West from Travis Air Force Base at 11am, and so much more.
