Valley kids explore inside vintage fighter planes

ATWATER, Calif. (KMPH) -

 

More than 60 vintage fighter planes graced the lawn of the Castle Air Museum during its annual open cockpit day.

Valley kids stepped inside the cockpit's of once raging fighter planes.

They saw how the planes operate, smell and sound.

'It just shows me to show respect to the people that fly airplanes because it was like cramped in there," said Chris Solis.

Kids stepped back into time, as they sat in the seats of war heroes.

The museum displayed more than 60 vintage beauties; some of the air birds date back to 1938 and join the valley from all around the world.

According to museum officials, they are one of three museums that house such a collection.

The open cockpit day is a bi-annual event.

The next one is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend.
