Free (online) cockpit tours!

Mar 12, 2013 2 Comments by

At the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force website, you can climb into the cockpit of a P-40, a Spad XIII, a B-25B, B-24D, B-29 or even a Kellet autogiro! More than 10 aircraft have virtual tours available, and more will be taken and uploaded as time and resources allow. You can even toggle up and down on arrows in the image to get a full, peripheral view! I think it’s a great way to combat writer’s block,but if you’re building a scale model it’s an invaluable documentation resource. While you’re there, check out the other virtual tours at the National Museum website – it’s a fantastic resource.

    That’s awesome! A lot of fun for sure… If you are in the New England aera, check out the New England Air Museum. They run regular “Open Cockpit” days where you can actually hop into some of the selected aircraft in the collection. Included are: F4U Corsair, P-47 Thunderbolt, F-100, and A-26 Invader. Cool!

    Thank you so much for this link! It really makes one think about the men who flew and operated these wonderful aircraft, the equipment they used that were “Modern Marvels” back then. One has to appreciate the technology of yesteryear to understand and appreciate today’s.
    Sitting in the pilots seat and looking around (360 deg) is soooo cool!
    Thanks again… made my day !
