Put yourself in the pilot’s seat at the Open Cockpit Weekend which is held on the middle weekend of the Queensland school holidays. 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.
Next Open Cockpit Weekend: July 7th-July 8th, 2018
Check back closer to the date for further details.
On both days of OCW the Museum will open one hour earlier at 9:00am. Closing time remains 4:00pm.
