    I missed the open Cockpits day this year that i was planning for a long time. As it is once a year event, can I please get a reminder to my e-mail about a month before this very special day next year. Thanks.
    Just curiosity, why this event has not been made once every month/week???

      Thanks for the practical comment Pratik. Please remember that the preparation for this began 4 months before by the Committee who are all volunteers, and there is always a shortage of volunteers. It is a very popular event in Darwin every year. We would really like to have more events like this, so if you know of any volunteers…. One way to remember the date is that it is always Legacy Day because the Museum makes a substantial donation to Legacy from the proceeds on the day. If you LIKE our Facebook page, you will see upcoming events- the updates are emailed to you!
