Wright-Patterson Air Force Base - Buses depart Hotel 9am
The National Museum of the United States Air Force (formerly the United States Air Force Museum) is the official National Museum of the United States Air Force and is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, near Dayton, Ohio. The NMUSAF is the world's largest and oldest military aviation museum. More than 400 aircraft and missiles are on display, most of them indoors.

The museum has several Presidential aircraft, including those used by Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. The centerpiece of the Presidential aircraft collection is SAM 26000, the first aircraft to be called Air Force One. This was the aircraft that took President and Mrs. Kennedy to Dallas on November 22, 1963-the day of the president’s assassination. This aircraft then carried the slain President’s body back to Washington. It was temporarily removed from display on December 5, 2009, to be repainted. It is scheduled to be placed back on display in the museum on President's Day, 2010. The museum is divided into galleries, covering broad historic trends in military aviation. These are further broken down into exhibits detailing specific time periods and showing aircraft in their historical context.


Lunch on your own. There is a cafeteria. Return to hotel 4pm
