Patriots Point to Host Open Cockpit Sunday Jan. 20asmith Jan 14, 2013
Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum invites the public to visit on Sunday, January 20 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. for the first “Open Cockpit Sunday” of 2013. This is the fifth Open Cockpit Sunday Patriots Point has hosted since the program began in 2011.
For one day only, visitors will have the opportunity to explore the cockpits of some of the museum’s most popular aircraft, including the SBD Dauntless, F-9 Cougar, H-1 Huey, S-3 Viking, H-3 Sea King, F-18 Hornet and the A-6 Intruder. Patriots Point staff and volunteers will be available to answer questions and to share the unique histories of these historic aircraft. Normal museum admission rates apply.
“Open Cockpit Sunday is one way we’re working to educate the public about our rich military history,” said Executive Director Mac Burdette. “It’s part of our mission; but it’s also a great opportunity for our visitors – children and adults alike – to experience Patriots Point in a whole new way and to walk in the steps of heroes.”
