End of this month, I have to go to Chicago for work for a couple of weeks, but will be staying with a friend there beforehand, and doing a roadtrip to Dayton, Ohio, to visit this place:
www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/

If there is anything specific any one wants pictures of, let me know. I have 1 1/2 - 2 days there, but don't plan to do a walkaround of everything, so prefer specifics if there are things you need for reference, or want to see in better detail.

As many photos as you can get of the Strawberry Bitch (B-24D) and the Belle (B-17), particularly the Bitch as I'll be doing a D at some point this year and want some interior type shots and up in the wheel wells, engines etc type photos.
One day I'll make it to the US and claim my promised free flights etc

Edit: Oh and the B-25 please same shots as above if poss (happy to provide online storage :) )

Not there, only if you go to CAF even then I'll probably have to do some fast talking as it was about 15-20 years ago but a promise is a promise in my books and I did help identify some of the history of the last flying Liberators.
