Here is a preview of a new exhibit coming to the National Museum of the United States Air Force. It is a Space Shuttle Landing Simulator with two simulations, wheel chair access, and backlit panels. This simulator and its sister ship will be arriving in early summer. Stay tuned for news as it develops.

Sounds great. I sure hope "early summer" means before June 29th as that is when we make our annual stop at the Air Force Museum on our way PA.

Just to update the exhibit status, the two Space Shuttle Landing Simulators are in place, but they are awaiting some repairs and final configuration setups. The museum will have to determine when they are ready for use by visitors.

The Space Shuttle Landing Simulators have now been installed in the Cold War Gallery of the National Museum of the United States Air Force.

The simulators will be accessible to the public on July 25, 2013, beginning at 9 AM.

Local media covered the opening of the Space Shuttle Landing Simulators at the NMUSAF. I have a small cameo appearance as well.

Very nice John. Congratulations on the ribbon-cutting, and the cameo!
