The National Museum of the United States Air Force is the largest and oldest military aviation museum in the world. More than one million people a year visit the museum’s 17 acres of indoor exhibits.

The museum has over 400 aircraft and missiles in it’s collection, including the Wright Brothers 1909 Military Flyer, Curtis 1911 Model D, the Boeing B-17 “Memphis Belle”, the Boeing B-29 Superfortress “Bockscar” (used in the atomic bombing of Nagaski) , Boeing B-52D Stratofortress, Lockheed SR-71A Blackbird, Rockwell B-1B, Northrup B-2A, Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk stealth fighter, and eight presidential aircraft, including the first Air Force One, which was the plane that took President and Mrs. Kennedy to Dallas the day he was assassinated.

The National Museum of the United States Air Force is located outside Dayton, Ohio adjacent to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base at Huffman Prairie Flying Field, where Orville and Wilbur Wright developed their airplane and made hundreds of flights. Wright-Patterson is one of the largest Air Force installations, and is the Air Force’s main research and development base, headquarters of the Air Force Logistics Command, and home to the Air Force Institute of Technology and the National Air and Space Intelligence Center. Which may explain why the FBI wanted to talk to me and the pilot when we landed. :)

My website has several other panoramas of the Dayton area, including an aerial near Orville and Wilbur Wright’s printing shop and bike shop south of downtown Dayton. http://BigEyeInTheSky.com/?CID=Dayton
