Visitors can look in the cockpit of the RF-4C Phantom II the evening of Sept. 3. This aircraft was delivered to the museum 55 years ago in September 1965. Visitors are invited to learn more about this aircraft from museum volunteer retired Tech. Sgt. Bob Grimm.
Grimm spent his 20-year military career as a jet engine technician. He has worked on more than 14 different airframes, including the RF-4C.
According to National Museum of the U.S. Air Force Director David Tillotson, resuming the evening hours each month will provide another opportunity for visitors whose schedule does not allow them to come during regular business hours.
“During this unique time for families, it can be challenging to get out during the day,” said Tillotson. “These evening hours will provide visitors more time to grab their masks and see our new exhibits.”
