Description

Museums and the Web attendees are invited to a reception at the San Diego Air and Space Museum where you can explore the museum, ride in state of the art flight simulators and experience a 4D movie.

Your journey through the history of flight begins, beer in hand, as you stand beneath a model of the Montgolfier brothers' hot air balloon of 1783 - the first manned vehicle in recorded history to break the bonds of gravity and lift humans above the Earth. Move on to see rare specimens of aircraft in the World War I Gallery and marvel at the entertaining and dangerous antics of the barnstormers in the Golden Age of Flight Gallery.

In addition to mint condition aircraft, including a Spitfire Mk. XVI, a Navy F6F Hellcat and an A-4 Skyhawk jet, experience the FS2000 Two-Seat Flight Simulator with full-motion 360-degree pitch, roll, spin and spiral action with flight training programs on a huge 58" screen in the cockpit.

Finally, enjoy a movie in the 4D Zable Theater with a multi-sensory experiences such as wind, vibration and other surprises synchronized to the film production.
