DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in southwest Ohio is reopening two galleries on a limited basis due to popular demand.
The Dayton-area museum says the Presidential Gallery and the Research and Development Gallery will be open Thursday through Sunday beginning this Thursday. They closed May 1 because of federal budget reductions.
Visitors must take shuttle buses from the main museum to a restricted area of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The museum says it decided it could use existing resources to partially resume but hopes to eventually display key aircraft from the galleries at the main complex.
A highlight of the Presidential Gallery is the plane used as President John F. Kennedy's Air Force One. The R&D Gallery includes the XB-70 Valkyrie, a high-speed, high-altitude prototype strategic bomber.
