Open Cockpit: Korean War Weekend

Look inside these historic aircraft of the Korean War era!

Open Cockpit: Korean War Weekend and our Wheels & Wings Car Show

Look Inside these vintage aircraft, and learn about their history from the crews who have lovingly restored them.

On July 21 and 22, look inside four of the aircraft that fought the Korean War. The A-16C Invader was an attack aircraft first used in World War II and then used extensively in the Korean conflict. The RF-86F Sabre Jet was the photo reconnaissance version of this superlative first-generation jet fighter. The F-84F Thunderstreak was a swept-wing fighter bomber. And the F-86H Sabre Jet was a more powerful version of the F-86, not actually used during the Korean War but developed at that time to combat the increasingly powerful Eastern-bloc fighters equipping our North Korean opponent.

The RF-86F, F-84F, and F-86H are on loan from the National Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola, Florida. 

Find out more about the A-26C InvaderRF-86F Sabre Jet, F-84F Thunderstreak, and F-86H Sabre Jet.

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!
