National United States Air Force Museum

While in Dayton, OH earlier this month, we managed to tour the National United States Air Force Museum. This place is absolutely huge! When I was there last (16 years ago), we were able to take a bus from the museum to a hanger on the air base that held the older presidential planes and helis (the older Air Force one(s). Very cool. Construction of a new hanger is currently ongoing to house the Presidential transports to this new hanger so hopefully it will be ready next year when we’re back. The new hanger will also hold older air defense missiles.  The museum is really too large to tour in one day. You really need more like three days to tour a place this large. These are only some of the planes on exhibit at the museum.

Dayton 2015

On May 13ftrh, a bunch of us made the trip to Dayton, OH for the 2015 Dayton Hamvention. It’s been about 16 years since I last had the chance to go there. As always, it’s quite an event. Every year, thousands from around the world come to this hamfest. This time around as a vender, I was helping to man our booth ‘Alfaspid Rotors’. There was lots of interest in our new ring rotor. People love things big and shiny. Here’s a few pics:
