Open Cockpit: Supersonic Weekend

Look inside the Blue Angels F-4N Phantom II Cockpit Simulator, the F-106 Delta Dart, the F-4C Phantom II, and the T-38 Talon!

Supersonic Weekend

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

This month we present four planes noted for their supersonic speed: The F-4C Phantom II, the F-106 Delta Dart, the Blue Angels F-4N Phantom II Cockpit Simulator, and the T-38 Talon trainer. The F-4C was a front-line fighter and tactical aircraft for several decades, the F-106 was the fastest single-engine aircraft ever, the Blue Angels F-4N Phantom II Cockpit Simulator helped train US Navy aviators, and the T-38 Talon was the Air Force plane that gave countless pilots their introduction to supersonic flight.

The Blue Angels F-4N Phantom II Cockpit Simulator is loan from the National Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola, Florida.

Our F-4C Phantom II #64-823 flew on the famous Operation Bolo mission during the Vietnam War. Find out more about this plane, and about the F-106 Delta Dart, the Blue Angels F-4N Phantom II Cockpit Simulator, and the T-38 Talon.

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!
