VROC Reunion Rally 2015: Returning Home – National Museum of the US Air Force, Part 3

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 previous blog posts I shared photographs from the Presidential and R&D Galleries and from the Early Year’s Gallery and the World War II Gallery.  In today’s blog post I will share photographs from the Korean War Gallery.

 

According to the National Museum of the US Air Force website “[t]he Korean War Gallery contains aircraft and exhibits that tell the story of the U.S. Air Force’s role and performance in that conflict. Visitors can immerse themselves in a storyline that reflects the emergence of the modern Air Force as the service experienced significant changes in roles, tactics and technology during the war. The conflict’s two most striking symbols of air power on both sides – the F-86A Sabre and the MiG-15 – are on display next to each other. Mannequins used in exhibits depict both everyday moments in the lives of airmen as well as historical images, such as the famous photo featuring pilots headed to the flight line as they walk under the MiG Alley sign.”

The National Museum of the US Air Force is a very cool place to visit. The museum is huge!  No way can you see everything in a day, let alone a few hours!

Before leaving the museum, we ate lunch (cheeseburgers, French fries/onion rings and chocolate cake) in the Valkyrie Cafe.
