>On our way to Louisville, we stopped over in Dayton, OH and made an all too quick visit to the US Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson Air Force Base on the Wednesday morning. In the display of early 1900's aircraft including those of the Wright Brothers were a couple of windtunnels used in wing development and instrument calibration. They were made of laminations of wood and in the order of 10-12 feet long. This one was made by Orville Wright in 1916 and achieved an airspeed of 160 mph.
