Today we are in Dayton, Ohio at the National Museum of the Air Force located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The museum is housed in 4 extremely large hangers (22 acres under roof) and has an array of planes, jets, missiles, presidential planes and helicopters and other relevant aircraft. We spent over 5 hours here and did not watch any of the various movies offered, nor did we walk to the outdoor exhibits. The gallery is divided into multiple sections including: Early Years Gallery, which includes WW I; World War II Gallery; Korean War Gallery; Cold War Gallery; Southeast Asia Gallery, Missile Gallery; The Presidential Gallery; the Global Reach Gallery; and the Research and Development Gallery. We found it interesting that nothing is shown that has been used since 1980.

This is a very interesting and informative museum. If you have not had an opportunity to visit here, put it on your bucket list. It is well worth your time and effort.

Tomorrow we head to Proctorville, Ohio for a visit with Lynd's first cousin. Then we will head to Virginia and home once again.

This has been a wonderful adventure and we have enjoyed it immensely. I am glad you cam along with us and hope you have enjoyed our blog as much as we have enjoyed sharing it with you. Look forward to seeing each of you in the not too distant future. In the meantime, stay safe and have a good rest of your summer.

Until later,

Clara
