  •  YOU Can Stand Next to It Too (0+ / 0-)

    The United States Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base has a B-36 inside one of the buildings, so any visitor can stand next to one of those wheels.  They've also got some models of the thermonuclear bombs which the B-36 was designed to drop to give the visitors an idea of just how unwieldy those early weapons were, for ill or for good.
