Take a flight back in time at the Cockpit USA Sponsored American Airpower Museum this summer!:
Honor the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, June 6th, 1944, this summer by taking a journey back in time with a one of a kind immersive living history experience.

You will suit up and be briefed on the historic mission of the 101st and 82nd Airborne by a cadre of trained living historians.
