So literally a week after 9/11 my cousin invited me to fly out to Dayton to go to the USAF Museum. I said yes, and we boarded a USAir Express puddle jumper for the quick flight from PGH to Dayton. These pics were taken on a shitty Kodak APS camera, and have been enhanced after scanning to make them less dark.

You can just make out the canard and fuselage of the XB-70 behind the Hustler. Sadly, this is the best pic of the Valkyrie that I got.
