National Museum of the

United States Air Force

Here's the short version of our nearly weeklong trip to Ohio.

So many pictures of the planes in the NMUSAF and from the Gathering of Mustangs are out on the web, I'm limiting this page to just a few of my own.

I pulled Sky out of school tuesday to drive over to Dayton.


Entering Ohio: Yea!


We stayed at the Red Roof Inn, near the AF Museum Sky in front of the Air Force Museum


Me and Sky in front of a Halberstadt


A-36 Apache
Skyler's Grandpa guarded these in Spokane.


The P-82 Twin Mustang.
Skyler liked the Ohka.


One of my favorites: the Northrop P-61 Black Widow.
The bombers and Mustangs nemesis: a FW-190.


The most advanced fighter of the war: a Me-262 Schwalbe.

Skyler seems fascinated by the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, so Bockscar had to be seen.
