Open Cockpit: DC-6 Airliner
Look inside this vintage propliner!
A Plane that Crossed Oceans
Look Inside this vintage aircraft, and learn about its history from the crew who has lovingly restored it.
The Douglas DC-6 was an iconic airliner of the 1950s and 1960s, carrying passengers across the globe in pressurized comfort. It is considered the pinnacle of piston propelled transport aircraft, but was displaced by far faster jet aircraft. Many DC-6s are still in use today. And you can sit in the “front office” and see just what made these birds go!
Find out more about the DC-6 nose section.
Open Cockpit weekends at the Pacific Coast Air Museum are your chance to get up close to selected aircraft and look inside. We raise the canopies and open the doors to give you an unobstructed view so you can see what a genuine fighter plane, attack plane, transport, helicopter, or other type is like from the inside!
