In addition to being home to the Wright Brothers and the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park sites, Dayton is home to the FREE National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. It’s the oldest and largest military museum in the world. See more than 360 aircraft on display in four hangars — including the famous B-17 WWII Bomber “Memphis Belle”. The museum also houses several Presidential Aircraft used by FDR, Harry Truman, and Dwight Eisenhower. The centerpiece of this collection is SAM 26000. This was the aircraft used by President John F. Kennedy regularly and was the aircraft that flew him and Mrs. Kennedy to Dallas on November 22, 1963. It carried Kennedy’s body back to Washington, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in as President on it, and it was used by Richard Nixon during his first term.
