I'm hoping the Strategic Air & Space Museum has hired an Arnold Schwarzenegger look-a-like for their "Helicopter Day" on Saturday (May 31). How awesome would it be to have a guy that looks and sounds like Arnold screaming "Get to the choppaaa!" as people wait in line for a helicopter ride?

Answer: Very.

Helicopter rides by Galaxy Enterprises ($60) are just part of the festivities planned for the annual adventure in aviation. The museum will also be holding an indoor airshow in Hanger B from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The day begins at 10 a.m. with a group helicopter landing at the museum, located about 20 minutes west of Omaha in Ashland, Neb., off of I-80. You'll have the chance to visit with chopper pilots inside their whirlybirds as they give tours of their machines throughout the day.

Get pumped up for "Helicopter Day" by watching that scene from 1987's Predator when Dutch (Schwarzenegger) screams, "Get to the choppaaa!" Just click on the link to see it.
