Since the museum opened Hangar One, were many of the planes on display outside able to be moved indoors? Are there still many on outdoor display?

Many aircraft still outside .Went there last month and saw the Privateer outside again, doesn't look like it's on the front restoration burner right now. Coronado is now indoors though. Tour guide said it all boils down to dollars as to when another building can be built to house more aircraft.

How can the NMUSAF be pulling in all these private donations and have practically their entire collection under a roof, while the NMNA seem to be less abled? Idea! Sell off some more aircraft (i.e. extra airframes) and that could help fund some stuff.

Is the Coronado in Hangar One?

Coronado is in the main museum. The simulated wood flight deck was slightly damaged when they rolled it in using metal castors. For some strange reason they elected not to hang the two inboard engines?
