B26...A Real Dream Girl

The National Air Force Museum is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio.  I was in the area the last couple of weekends for some soccer tournaments and had some time to check it out, twice.  It's a big place, you may need two visits.  The museum is a record of early flight in the US all the way through current aircraft, particularly military aircraft illustrated by the planes themselves.  It's essentially a number of large hangers full of planes either on the ground or suspended.  Throughout the displays are videos that recap events, battles, wars, inside-looks at living conditions, etc.  The aircraft are amazing; the stories and history surrounding them and the men and women who flew and took care of these things is humbling.

This is a B26.  B for bomber.  The environment is relatively dark with lights on the planes.  I saw folks with tripods but elected to leave mine in the car so this was shot hand held, high ISO, three exposures.
