"USAF Virtual Tour" at the National Museum




ANOTHER KEEPER. This might be one of the most advanced sites I have ever been in.
If this is a sign of the future, Wow! Click on the MAP in the upper right hand corner to bring down a visual menu of the different sites within the museum, then click on a dot within that site to view the exhibits from that camera angle and then follow (click on) the arrows.
You can enlarge or shrink the picture to see the next arrow.

It doesn't get much cooler than this!

National Museum of the U.S. Air Force - Virtual Tour

Welcome to the National Museum of the United States Air Force! We're pleased you're with us today and hope you enjoy your tour of the world's largest and oldest military aviation museum.
During your tour, you'll be immersed in aviation history … from the Army's first Wright Flyers and World War I dog fights … through World War II and the dropping of two atomic bombs … to the invention of jet-powered flight and the development of rockets powerful enough to travel to the moon.

These stories share a common thread – the dedication of the men and women of the United States Air Force, without whom these marvels of technology would not have been possible. This museum stands as a monument to their achievements and the many sacrifices they made to protect our proud nation.

This podcast tour will allow you to move freely about the museum – you can take the tour in any order and at your own pace. Look for the podcast tour symbol and numbers as you move through the galleries. Just select the number on your MP3 player and press play to hear details and interesting sidelights about museum exhibits.

We hope you enjoy your tour spanning more than 100 years of aviation history!

The entrance to the National Museum of the United States Air Force is on Springfield Street at historic Wright Field (Gate 28B), Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, six miles northeast of Dayton, Ohio. The museum's address is: 1100 Spaatz StreetWright-Patterson AFB, OH 45433

NOTE: As a U.S. Air Force Veteran, I am very impressed with the National Museum of our nation's air power from the earliest years to present. This site is much more than air craft, it includes the military history, uniforms, weapons, flags & much more! The "amazing" part is this web site for the "virtual tour"... if you want to go visit it, you need to take this tour first!!! - JGWest
