What's Happening

Over Labor Day weekend visitors will see scale versions of aircraft flying over the museum, regaling spectators with daring aerobatics. More than 100 pilots from across the country will entertain audiences as they perform skillful maneuvers with jets, warbirds and helicopters from all eras of aviation history.
This limited-time exhibit utilizes tablets running the innovative technology "HistoPad", which immerses the visitor in the history of Sainte-Mère-Église, France, during the Occupation and the summer of 1944. Through spectacular scientifically- and historically-validated 360° recreations, museum visitors will travel in time to understand the key moments of this decisive battle for the success of D-Day.
