Other Dayton Aviation Attractions?

Fri Mar 09, 2012 6:31 pm

Good Day.

I'll be visiting the USAF museum at Dayton with time to kill the next day. Are there any other things to see / visit for an aviation enthusiast with a car?

Like for example a general aviation field with some vintage types?

Or if not, what else? There doesn't seem to be much - in fact the Rough Guide USA doesn't even mention Dayton!

Thanks. Regards - musang

Coming out of the USAF Museum, take a right (I think it's "Springfield Street") and about 2-3 miles down the road on the right (maybe not even that far) is a Wright Brothers Interpretative Center. Some good exhibits, and two films--a half-hour one on the brothers and a shorter one on the history of Wright-Patterson airport.

And, rght across from the USAF Museum is the Huffman Prairie Flying Field Interpretive Center.. Signs will direct you.

You could have lunch at the "Sky Galley" restaurant at Cincinnati's sleepy yet historic Lunken airport:
