2007 Museums: Strategic Air Command

Ashland, NE

This museum has a collection that reflects the times of the cold war and many of the aircraft are bombers.  This visit is worth the detour from Omaha to have a look at the aircraft technologies that this period generated. 

A visit to the museum's web site is also recommended.
