Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, one of the most historic military installations in the world, will open its Ford Island gates to the public on June 3 and June 4.

This rare opportunity will allow visitors to tour the USS Frank J. Petersen Jr, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, homeported at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

There will also be static displays of military aircraft including a Marine Corps VM-22 Osprey, a Navy MH-60 Seahawk and a Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin.

Over the weekend, the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum’s Flight Adventures featuring Biggest Little Air Show returns after a three-year hiatus. Rivalling the thrill of regular air shows, this air show of radio-controlled model aircraft includes exciting precision acrobatics, and the ever popular “candy bomber.”

The museum has also planned many other activities, including open cockpits, flight lessons and STEM activities for kids, food trucks, bounce houses, and more.

Public access to Ford Island will be available Saturday from 8 a.m. for the two airshows on Saturday, and from 11 a.m. for the one airshow on Sunday.

All attendees, including military personnel and families must register online via the Joint Base Summer Showcase & Expo link here.

Registration is required as the number of vehicles granted access is limited. Certain activities will also require pre-registration.

Visitors 18 years old and older are required to present a valid photo ID, such as a driver’s license, passport or military ID. Once guests are parked on Ford Island, shuttles will be available to transport attendees to the exciting venues.
