Open Cockpit: DC-6 Airliner Cockpit
Look inside this classic airliner!
Look inside this vintage aircraft, and learn about its history from the crew who has lovingly restored it.
The DC-6 was a large and powerful piston-powered airliner. In its day, the DC-6 circled the globe delivering passengers to North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and all spots in between. When it was replaced by jetliners in the larger airlines, the DC-6 carried on with smaller and regional airlines. Many served as military transports, and later several were converted into aerial tankers for fighting fires.
Find out more about the DC-6.
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!
