Airplane Day

Wheels up for some high-flying fun!

Join us 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. Learn the basics of aviation, speak with expert plane spotters, 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!
