Airplane Day

By Fort Mifflin (other events)

Saturday, May 28 2022 10:00 AM 4:00 PM EDT

Come out and discover  “Why did they build the fort so close to the airport?” This high-flying event includes guided tours, special photo “sweet spots” for the best angles to photograph incoming aircraft and so much more. Meet a pilot and learn the basics of aviation, speak with expert planespotters, enjoy the special Wings Over Fort Mifflin exhibit, and take in the views of the planes soaring above. This year, we’re including a new special interactive presentation on the first manned flight in North America, which took place right here in Philadelphia and over Fort Mifflin! Experience the best plane watching spot in Philadelphia!
