So, Dayton was on my way back home and the museum is only a few minutes from the interstate. I wish I spent more time there, but I guess that means I will just have to return. Note to anyone who visits, the lighting really sucks in there.

Didn't we tell you to plan more time for Dayton!?

I may be wrong but the last few postings I've seen from here on other boards (POTN, FC, etc...) all claimed that they used a tripod and the museum didn't say boo about it.

Just a note for anyone contemplating a future visit.  But yes, the place is an absolute cave...   Angry

Yes you did, but I was trying to drive a certain bit, so that took precedent.

That F-111 looks like a cartoon bloodhound from this perspective.  Nice shot.  Is the XB-70 still outside?

The Valkyrie is inside - in the R&D gallery - that is located within the base.
