NC Bound T-Giving 2013-- Part 8: National Museum of USAF

Well, I finally managed to get into the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force parking lot after another missed sign and met up with buddy Denny and went straight away to a line to get tickets for the shuttle bus out to JFK's Air Force One. Both entry into the museum and the shuttle were free!!! //// Because of the significance of the anniversary of the assassination, several more shuttles had been added than would usually be available. We were lucky enough to get on the first bus out this morning, seats #39 and #40. Afterwards, we were ushered into the auditorium where just a few weeks earlier they had had the Doolittle Raiders Final Toast (would I have ever have liked to been there for that) and were given the particulkars of the trip and told we were welcome to film as much as we like, but not on the way over because the hangar the presidential planes is in is on the Wright-Patterson AFB. High alert, you know. //// Next, A Real Piece of History, a Plane and An Event. --RoadDog
