    This is a virtual tour of the National Museum of the Air Force. CLick on the Blue Arrows or the dots on the map to go to the different areas.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Very cool. I think my son went there with one if his aunts once.

    Thanks for the link I really liked. The Trabi was at its peak! "High Tech" My father was.
    I love adventure. Therefore, I stay at home.

    Sorry to disagree Jim; but, I don't think you can see it all in a day--not if you have an inquisitive 12 year old with you. At least we couldn't. A well spent 2 days about 19 years ago.

    That brings back some memories. I grew up about 35 miles from there and that was the best school field trip we took. (Sixth grade, 1966) At that time, it was known as Wright-Patterson Air Force Museum and only had the Early Years and WWII buildings. It didn't take quite so long to go thru it.

    It's been a couple of years since I wsa there. I'm ready to go back. And if you can do it all in one day, you've either rushed through it, or missed a bunch of it. I was sure disappointed when word came down that the NAFM would not get one of the shuttles. That would have been a tremendous addition to the museum. Also, noone has mentioned the fact that unless you buy something from the gift shop or something to eat from the cafe, it's all ABSOLUTLY FREE! It won't cost you a dime. I highly recommend the Air Force Museum to anyone who enjoys the history of aviation. It's fun to see just how big (or how small) some of these airplanes are. Just seeing them on TV or in books doesn't do them justice.
