Up-Close Aircraft Day

Saturday, March 10  -  11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Helicopters of the Vietnam War


The March Field Air Museum's “Up-Close Aircraft Day” this month will feature five (yes, five!) iconic Vietnam War helicopters in the museum's immersive Vietnam Fire Base exhibit area. Included will be an AH-1F Cobra, HU-21B Workhorse, HH-34J Choctaw, OH-6A Cayuse, and a UH-1B Iriquois. To learn more about the actual helicopters in advance, visit our AIRCRAFT tab on this website, and click on the "Helicopter" category.


Every second Saturday through 2018, a different aircraft is featured monthly during "Up-Close Aircraft Day!" Guests have the opportunity for a close look – sometimes climbing stairs to see directly into the cargo bay or cockpit, other times even climbing aboard. The new “Up-Close Aircraft Days” takes place at the March Field Air Museum from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Included with regular museum admission.
