Just wanted to thank the US Government for the Airforce Museum - I was really impressed with it.
This would be worth seeing just on it's own - there were 3 huge hangers filled with the latest aircraft. In one hanger, there was a B-52, Stealth Bomber, Stealth Fighter, Cargo plane that opens at the nose, F-4 Phantoms and a U2 Spy Plane.
A replica of the Wright brothers plane hung above the new F-22 fighter. Very cool. Amazing how far we have come in 100 years of flight (even more amazing how far we have come in the last 40 years - makes you wonder what they CAN'T show us!)
I was impressed by the unmanned Globel Hawk and didn't realize it was the size of a large fighter plane or how cramped and uncomfortable the cockpit of a modern day fighter is. 7 hours in one of those? No thanks! It gave me a new perspective on our pilots and how hard their jobs are.
