Are there any aircraft cockpits or interiors open?Yes, the interior of the four primary presidential aircraft (VC-54, VC-118, VC-121 and VC-137) are open to the public. Visitors can also walk through a B-29 fuselage and sit in two cockpit mock-ups (F-16 and F-4).
How can I get permission to view the interior of an aircraft?Due to the museum's commitment to preserve aircraft and artifacts, the policy is that access to these exhibit items will not be permitted. Only veterans who flew, crewed or maintained an aircraft or type of aircraft on display may request a waiver to have special access to that aircraft. These requests required at least two weeks notice and are look-ins only. In addition, the aircraft must pass all criteria of accessibility and safety prior to approval, and the veteran must have the mobility and agility to safely enter and exit the aircraft. Please contact the Special Events Division at (937) 255-8046 or email@example.com for more information.
Professional photographers or production companies wishing to photograph or film aircraft interiors should first review the Request to Film / Request to Photograph forms. Please contact the Public Affairs Division at (937) 255-4704 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
