WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- 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 Wednesday 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 museum goers 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.
