Restoration crews at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force recently moved the Lockheed C-141C Hanoi Taxi into the museum's new fourth building. The aircraft, which airlifted the first American prisoners of war out of North Vietnam in February 1973, will be displayed in the Global Reach Gallery. The public will be able to view the aircraft as they move into the fourth building from a designated area on the museum grounds. The 224,000 square foot fourth building is scheduled to open to the public in June 2016. Information on the new fourth building will be updated regularly on the museum's website. The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio, is the world's largest military aviation museum.
