  • Not Your Average Museum - The National Museum of the United States Air Force


So a little while ago I found myself in the middle of Central Ohio for a couple of days and I didn't have anything to do and I was like What is there to do in central Ohio? This is not your average museum. It's not just a stop on your way by as you're passing through, This is a destination. I you want to see planes, rockets and military memorabilia tracing the history of flight from its earliest inceptions to modern warfare, it's time to start planning your next vacation to Dayton, Ohio, the birthplace other aviation. You probably know that the Wright brothers flew their first powered airplane near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. But make no mistake: the Wright Flyer was developed and built in their hometown of Dayton, Ohio, Where they returned after their successful 1903 powered air flights and founded the Wright company in 1909 to manufacture aircraft for the US Government. From drones, to ICBM's, and decommissioned nuclear bombs: if it was flown or used by the United States Army Air Corps. or the United States Air Force, this museum probably has it, including the only B-2 stealth bomber on display, the original F-22 Raptor prototype, and its competition, the YF-23 prototype, the XB-70 Valkyrie supersonic bomber the X-32 Joint Strike Fighter, The VZ-9AV Avrocar flying saucer, and hundreds of other unique and fantastic aircraft from throughout history. The National Museum of the United States Air Force is the largest and oldest military aviation museum in the world. it has two times more exhibition and maintenance space than the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, clocking in at a whopping 1 million square feet on a four hundred acre plot just outside the home of the Wright Brothers. At a brisk pace it'll take you hours, if not days, to go through all of the exhibits. So spend a day. Spend two. Or if you're like me, spend a week Sign up to visit the Presidential in R&D Galleries, or book your guided tour through the museum's restoration area. Did I mention that admission is free? imagine he aerial acrobatics and skill of pilots engaged in the dog fights between piston driven planes like the American P-51 Mustang and the British Spitfires flying against the Japanese Mitsubishi 0 and the German Messerschmitt Me 262: the world's first jet-powered fighter aircraft Crawl through the bomb bay of a B29 Superfortress, and fly to the history and evolution aerial warfare from the Korean War and Vietnam Conflict with the F-84 Thunderjet, the Mig 15, the b52 Stratofortress bomber, the Mig-21 and the F-4 Phantom II Meet advanced stealth aircraft, like the F-117 Nighthawk. Find yourself in the cockpit of an F-16 Fighting Falcon. Or make friends with two of my favorite planes: the SR-71 Blackbird, and the A-10 warthog. And if the weather's nice, take a stroll through the outdoor airpark, where massive cargo planes are on display like the C-60 Lodestar, the C 130 Hercules, or the actual c17 plane that was used in the movies Iron Man and Transformers. Nothing can compare to being dwarfed by B-1B supersonic bomber, or standing next to a decommissioned thermonuclear warhead with enough power to destroy a city ten times over. If you love planes, then you have your next vacation destination. Or, if you can't make it to Ohio, take a virtual tour the galleries online and donate museum foundation to help to preserve these aircraft for future generations, and to help the museum with its planned expansion into a fourth aircraft hangar. You can find the links to the virtual tour and donation page in the description below. So bring your camera, make a video to share and subscribe to Tech Laboratories for more videos that I filmed while visiting the museum. If you think that a museum like this is where planes go to die, Think again! This is airplane heaven! This is where airplanes go to live for ever. For Tech Laboratories, I'm Tech Adams saying Keep Thinking And thanks for watching!


The squadron provided worldwide missile warning, space launch and detection in the event of an attack against the United States.


The 4th Space Warning Squadron was activated on 15 May 1992, when it took over the mobile Defense Support Program (DSP) satellite mission which had been performed since 1983 at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico by the 1025th Satellite Communications Squadron, Mobile[note 2] and the 4th Satellite Communications Squadron, Mobile.[note 3]

The squadron employed the Air Force's only strategic survivable, mobile ground system to receive early warning missile attack data. The 4th provided survivable and endurable missile warning detection to the National Command Authority and had the ability to survive and operate through all phases of trans/post attack. Unlike fixed units, the 4th was designed to be mobile, and could deploy to any location in the world. In addition, the DSP satellites provided immediate, worldwide missile warning, space launch, and nuclear detonation detection.

The squadron mission was transferred to the 137th Space Warning Squadron of the Colorado Air National Guard in Greeley, Colorado in fall 1997.
