USAF Museum Series: Part 4

This will be a short post as we continue the series by entering the Modern Flight Gallery. I didn't take too many photos in this hangar during my last visit so I apologize for the sparse selection.

A new addition to the museum is the YMQ-9 Reaper

This specific Reaper was the first to ever fly in Afghanistan

The F-111A Aardvark pioneered variable-sweep wings

This F-4C Phantom II shot down two MiG-17s on my birthday in 1967
More MiG-21s have been produced than any other modern jet aircraft

The next few installments will include aircraft that everyone loves to see, including the SR-71, B-2, and other Cold War staples.

As always, just a reminder that you can access any of the posts in this series by clicking on the USAF Museum tag in the navigation bar to the right or at the bottom of the posts.
