We at Cockpit USA have officially begun counting down the days until the Collings Foundation descends on the American Airpower Museum for this year's Labor Day Weekend celebrations! With a theme of Wings, Wheels and Tracks, you can be sure there will be plenty going on! From beholding hunks of military metal on the ground to offerings of flight experiences in the bombers and fighters, including the C-47 and T-6's; there will be something for everyone! Put it in your diaries and on your calendars! Advance discounted tickets will go on sale NLT 13 August. Be sure to grab your as soon as they drop!
This year's Labor Day weekend will see the American Airpower Musuem celebrating with a 'Family Heritage Weekend'. Visitors are invited along to the Republic Airport landmark to explore the military legacy of members of their family through an awe inspiring tour of the museum. Along the way such sights as a B-17, a B-24 Liberator and a P-51 Mustang fighter can be beheld along with the chance to have a once in a lifetime flight experience on these aircraft. As proud sponsors of the AAM, we at Cockpit USA have the lowdown that fingers are crossed that the pioneering German Me 262 jet, a great threat to Allied powers during WWII will also be on display. Mark it in your calendars folks - from August 31st to September 3rd the only place to be is at the American Airpower Museum!
