Dayton – January 2017 – Air Force Museum Hangar 4

The USAF Air Force Museum was advertising a robotics event, and since they had opened Hangar 4, the Presidential Plane hangar, since the last time we had been there we made the trip out. Hangar 4 also has a large display of spacecraft.

While we saw very little robotics, the new hangar is spectacular, and well worth the trip. We also cruised through the other hangars, which hadn’t changed much. The USAF Museum does a great job in their presentation, I think better than the Smithsonian.
