"USAF Museum at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base" Top 5 Page for this destination National Museum of the United States Air Force Tip by Ewingjr98

One of the finest aircraft museums anywhere, and certainly the biggest tourist draw in Dayton is the Air Force Museum. Billed as the world's oldest and largest aircraft museum, the National Museum of the United States Air Force has some 400 aircraft on display. The museum was started in 1923 in Dayton and it has moved across town since its inception. Some of the most impressive aircraft on display are the world's only XB-70 Valkyrie, the B-29 which dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki, the first Air Force One Presidential aircraft, and B-2 and F-117 stealth aircraft.

The museum is visited by about one million people each year, and is actually considered one of the biggest attractions in all of Ohio... which is not surprising.
