How cool would it be to escape your normal commute via helicopter, jetting over tangled roads and traffic delays?

The rain-or-shine event includes presentations by the Sky Soldiers and includes military demonstrations of the Huey and Cobra. Superhero fans can snap a photo of the Batcopter. Holy whirlybirds, Batman, The Pursuit provided an in-depth look at this unique museum back in the spring.
