Wright Patterson Air Force Museum

While we were staying in Wilmington OH we took a day trip to WP AFB to visit the museum, WOW is all I can say.  The museum is free of charge and if you have a military ID you can take a tour of the President area on base.  Those of you without an ID card will need to arrive early as there is a shuttle bus and it full up fast.  The day we were there all seats were taken before 10:30 AM.

The main museum is three hangers and starts at the beginning of flight with the Wright Brothers and continues to modern day rockets.  Honestly, these three building will take a good part of the day, with early flight taking the most time.  We didn’t get to see everything, so on our return trip we will spend another day.  For the elderly and handicap they have free motorized wheel chairs.
