Air & Space Museum
Star Wars™ X-Wing Starfighter
Our Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter is a 3/4-scale replica of the spacecraft flown by Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Signed by numerous cast and crew including Harrison Ford, George Lucas, and David Prowse this fan favorite continues to be one of the most popular exhibits at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Thanks to generous Rocky Mountain Fan Force volunteers and an agreement with Lucasfilm, this unique Star Wars heirloom continues to call our hangar home.
Build an Airplane Showcase
Building Airplanes – A Riveting Experience!
Join us at Wings Over the Rockies for a fun, hands-on, learning day in the hangar! Kids and families will receive riveting kits to put together their own model airplane. We will also have wooden air tanker planes to put together and paint. There will be demonstrations of construction and riveting on actual planes that are in the process of being built and the opportunity to learn from some of our local craftsmen about what it takes to build your own plane. You can also get a walk around of the Vans RV-12iS that was built by Wings Aerospace Pathways (WAP) students and see the very start of the next RV-12iS that is currently being built.
Talk with Neil Kardos about his highly modified RV-6 and with Brian Beatty about his award winning RV-7A. This will be an opportunity to learn about their experiences of building their airplanes from start to finish.
Speaker Series | Why Explore Space?
Join us in the Harrison Ford Theater at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum for a presentation about space exploration by Wings’ Curator, Chuck Stout.
Are there any good reasons to spend money or to risk human lives by traveling into space? Space exploration can be expensive and there are certainly risks. But what are the benefits? This presentation investigates some of the ways that space exploration has already changed our lives, as well as how it might solve problems and improve our future.
This event is included in museum admission.
