2016 Open Cockpit Weekend - Queensland Air Museum


Put yourself in the pilot’s seat at the Open Cockpit Weekend which is held on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd July 2016

As the name suggests, the cockpits of several aircraft are opened for public inspection. Museum visitors are invited to actually sit in the cockpits of selected aircraft including the iconic F-111. Some of the larger aircraft, for example our 1937 vintage Douglas DC-3, are also opened up so that visitors can experience an aisle that goes uphill, sit in the cabin and see what air travel was like in days gone by.

This event is the major fundraising activity of the museum and in past years has attracted over 5,000 attendees.
