VROC Reunion Rally 2015 – Returning Home: National Museum of the US Air Force, Part 2

[Please note that this blog post is backdated to September 22; the post was published on October 23.]

Today is Day 12 of our 13-day vacation. We are traveling home from the VROC Reunion Rally, which was held in Eureka Springs, AR.

We visited the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, OH today.  In yesterday’s blog post, I shared photographs from the Presidential and R&D Galleries.  In today’s blog post I will share photographs from the Early Year’s Gallery and the World War II Gallery.

When we returned to the main museum complex from the Presidential and R&D Galleries, the shuttle bus left us off at the entrance to the museum.

According to the museum’s website, the “Early Years Gallery conveys the magic and wonder of the formative days of military air power. The gallery’s aircraft collection, exhibits and artifacts combine to capture the spirit of imagination of that transformational era, chronicling the time from the Wright brothers and their contemporaries, through World War I and to the lead up to World War II.”

Only the exhibits at the entrance to the Early Years Gallery were open to the public, when we visited the museum.  Rest of the Early Years Gallery displays were blocked off from visitors.

 

According to the museum’s website, “[h]arrowing and courageous moments are captured in the museum’s World War II Gallery, which houses one of the world’s top collections of WWII aircraft and a variety of engaging and evocative exhibits to tell the proud story of the U.S. Army Air Forces during the war. The gallery captures the pivotal moments, campaigns and figures of U.S. Army Air Forces’ air power in both the Pacific and European Theaters.”
