VROC Reunion Rally 2015: Returning Home – National Museum of the US Air Force, Part 4

[Please note that this blog post is backdated to September 22; the post was published on October 27.]

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, from the Early Year’s Gallery and the World War II Gallery, and from the Korean War Gallery.  In today’s blog post I will share photographs from the Southeast Asia War Gallery.

 

According to the National Museum of the US Air Force website, “[i]n the Southeast Asia War Gallery, visitors can view aircraft and exhibits that convey the U.S. Air Force’s involvement in the conflict. Key air campaigns such as Operation Rolling Thunder and Operation Linebacker I and II – the latter of which applied enough pressure on North Vietnam to compel them to an eventual cease-fire – are examples of significant operations featured in the Southeast Asia War section. The area displays aircraft such as a B-52D, which participated in Operation Linebacker I and II; workhorse fighters such as the F-4C flown by then-Col. Robin Olds and the F-105; and fighters flown against the Air Force by North Vietnam.”

    I have really enjoyed all of your posts from this wonderful museum. Your pictures are beautiful, but I would still like to get there myself. Maybe some day!

    What a very interesting museum. Your photos are super Linda the way you’ve captured the feeling and every detail of their very essence. I think I remember a movie that featured Patches but can’t for the life of me remember the name of it. Glad she’s safe at home now.
