The IMAX theater at the front & center of the museum.
This picture is from the first time I visited, in 2003; back then, it was still
the "United States Air Force Museum." By the time I visited again in 2006,
it had become the "National Museum - United
States Air Force". I don't know if they changed their name first or the
Naval Aviation Museum did,
but apparently the inter-service rivalry extends to changing the names of their
I was actually at the museum one of the days they were changing the lettering
on the front of the IMAX, but I didn't realize that they were changing the
letters due to the museum's name change, so I didn't take any pictures of that.
