Strategic Air and Space Museum.

The Strategic Air and Space Museum used to be on Offutt Air Force Base near the Bellevue exit.  It now has a new home in western Sarpy County at the Interstate exit at Ashland near the Lee Simmons Conservation and Wildlife Safari.

Offutt Air Force Base itself was once the manufacturing plant for planes flown in World War II. Those planes are also on display at the museum.

Flying the SR-71 may be old hat to some but for most of us, just seeing one close up causes Goosebumps.  Once the top secret plane of the Air Force, it is now on display in the Atrium.  Even though we fly several more recent planes, the SR-71 Blackbird holds the speed record for being the fastest plane.  During flight, the plane heats up and stretches out a tiny bit so the joints had to accommodate this expansion.  A lot of new technology was developed just for this plane.  The same applies to the B-1 bomber plane.  For the longest time the plane wasn't flown, but the technology we learned in developing the aircraft helped other endeavors.  Recently, the B-1 has been put to good use.

The museum has examples of just about every important aircraft ever used in the Air Force from the B-52 bombers to the planes that carried the nuclear bomb that ended World War II.

This Tour will make any kid's day and any adult too.  More information.
