Combat Air Museum Gets New Artifact

Topeka, KS -- The Combat Air Museum at Forbes Field in Topeka got a new artifact today. Ken Pringle is lending a cockpit escape capsule from an F-111 USAF Aircraft to the museum. The cockpit comes from a plane that crashed during a training mission and comes to Topeka from New Jersey.

The cockpit will remain in Topeka until Pringle returns it to his private collection.

Two former F-111 Crew Chiefs were on hand for the delivery today.
