National Museum of the United States Air Force

Two weekends ago we went to the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, OH. We probably could have spent several days there because there was three huge hangars full of stuff and then some and there was a ton of stuff to read. Instead of reading everything, we sort of glided through (no pun intended) in 4 hours so that we could see everything.

We did not get to see the Presidential airplane section since it was in a secure area and there were no vacancies left for the day so we'll probably go back. The extra nice thing about it is that the museum free. What is not free is the IMAX movie and the food (which was outrageously expensive). We saw the IMAX movie called "Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag" which was semi-exciting. All of the other movies were completely unrelated to flight and we thought that it would sort of odd to go to a flight museum to see a movie on Nascar or undersea adventures. Anyway, here are the pictures...

Cool photos. Was that the F-4 cockpit in which you took those pics?

I believe it was an F-14 if I'm not mistaken.
