Kansas Aviation Museum offers F-4 simulator flights

December 25, 2012


WICHITA — The Kansas Aviation Museum is offering a rare opportunity for the public to experience a flight in an F-4 simulator.

The so-called F4 experience will be available today through Sunday at the Wichita museum.

Detailed flight controls simulate the real thing. A museum volunteer and F-4 simulator creator Justin Messenger will take museumgoers through various options from a quick flight to one the museum touts as challenging even for experienced pilots.

The museum is charging $20 for a basic flight that lasts 30 minutes and includes a simulated launch from an aircraft carrier.

For $60, the public can experience a so-called immersive flight lasting 90 minutes that includes suiting up in a functional flight suit and strapping to the ejection seat.

How about extending this further. I'd fly to Kansas for this. It's not going to happen in the next 3 days no matter how much I would like to!

Please extend it one month. Dorothy and Toto would like it.

That was my exact thought!! I love F-4's. I worked on them in the early 80's as a Plane Captain...
