Where do they intend to put that building?


They can always, by the looks of it, add onto the ends of the buildings. 50% more space to the WWII end as well as the other 3. Be about the same price as a new building but allows them to increase display space in each sub section.

That should also give them space to get the other planes from the airpark indoors.

I'm sure they wouldnt do this but it would be nice if the NMUSAF repurposed the old R&D and Presidential hangars back to their original purpose and make them an annex again. It would be an opportunity to display items like SSSB plus several other aircraft that have been off display and in storage for years.


I don't remember the exact amount but the cost of transporting visitors to the annex was tremendous ... Keeping in mind there is NO admission fee .


I can imagine it was by no means cheap. It's too bad people would probably balk at paying to see something like that, I wouldnt hesitate to pay if needed to make it happen.


That's not the issue ... if memory is correct ... as 'The National Museum of the US Air Force' any fees charged need to go to Washington and not be allowed to stay local. That's one of the reasons there is no admission charge.
