DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The national Air Force museum in southwest Ohio will close some galleries starting next month due to federal budget cuts.
The director of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton says the presidential and research and development galleries will be closed until further notice beginning May 1.
Museum Director Jack Hudson says popular exhibits in the affected galleries include President John F. Kennedy's Air Force One and the XB-70 Valkyrie. He says museum officials hope to reopen those galleries as soon as possible.
The mandated budget cuts also will end weekly tours of the museum's restoration area after April 26 and cancel some lectures and all of the summer aerospace camps.
The museum also has canceled all staff training and travel and is deferring non-emergency maintenance work.
