The National Museum of the United States Air Force tells a moving story, one of epic proportions involving man and machine, which begins with early experimenters of flight before the Wright brothers got off the ground. This includes "lighter-than-air" experiments involving massive balloons, gliders, and airships. Visitors then get an in-depth look at the contributions of Dayton's-own Wright brothers team and continue on with the military implementation of aircraft into the action of World War I. Another exciting exhibit is centered around the "first" flights of the 1920's and '30's, and then moves towards the action of World War II. Interwoven throughout the museum is the evolution and history of the United States Air Force; a saga that is still being written today.
