    Being an airplane buff I found this place to be amazing. A great assortment of our strategic aircraft, including an SR 71 Blackbird suspended in the atrium as you enter. It also has a wonderful collection of old warbirds, and not just the SAC stuff. A lot of vintage stuff, all in one area, that you can't see anywhere else. Even some non US aircraft, like the MiG 21. My wife, who's not into aircraft, was impressed by the massive display.

    I have been to museum 3 times and it gets better every time. Just there July 14th, 2013 and the B-29 looks great. I am glad to see that the B-47 and the B-36 have been getting slowly worked on. It was my brother's first time there and had never seen the size of the B-36 in person. He was very surprised. Keep up the good work and I look forward to the next time I can return. (Avro Vulcan, B-1A, unfortunately not able to be seen.)
