Memorial Day : Arsenal of Democracy Warbird Event
Join us this Memorial Day weekend, at Republic Airport as the American Airpower Museum continues to celebrate its annual Arsenal of Democracy Warbird event. The vintage military aircraft will perform aerial demonstrations on Friday, May 26th at the AAM, and over Jones Beach on Saturday, May 27th and Sunday, May 28th. AAM’s warbirds include a Douglas C-47 Skytrain troop transport, North American P-51D Mustang Fighter and two AT-6 Texan trainers.
Featured here is a video of last year's experience at the AAM, captured by Juliana Magalhaes. Be sure to subscribe to Cockpit USA on YouTube. Our goal is to gain 300 subscribers by Memorial Day!
Your paid admission to the museum (18 years or older to be eligible) automatically enters you to win a Cockpit USA “made in the USA” leather flight jacket! This giveaway will run throughout the event and the winner will be announced on Monday, May 29th 2023.
Flight experiences are available each day on one of AAM’s AT-6 Texans plus the red WACO Biplane! Food and Ice Cream trucks will also be available onsite. Parking is FREE in the AAM’s lot or along New Highway.
The AAM is also open Monday, Memorial Day, closing at 4:00 P.M.
