Doug Lantry talked about some of the interesting items in the museum’s collections. Items included a “Fat Man” atomic bomb, like the one dropped over Nagasaki, Japan in 1945, the plane used to fly President Franklin Roosevelt, and the pen used by President Harry Truman to sign the National Security Act, which established the Air Force as an independent service. The National Museum of the United States Air Force is the oldest and largest military aviation museum in the world and is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, near Dayton, Ohio. 

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Dayton, Ohio, from November 18-21 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed.  close
