We also signed up for the tour that took us onto Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to buildings that house past Air Force One planes as well as prototypes and test planes. We walked through planes used by FDR, Truman, Eisenhower and Kennedy. In the Kennedy plane, you could see where they sawed through a section in the rear of the plane to allow space for his casket. Fascinating.
We will definitely go back when we return to the area.
