Dover Air Force Base: An Amazing Field Trip

On November 12, we took a field trip to Dover Air Force Base! Can I just say this trip was amazing! the kids loved it! The parents loved it! I loved it!

Upon arrival, we went out to see the many planes that are on display. These were huge! There was a plane called the Nightingale. This plane flew the injured soldiers back from war and on the top half of the plane was an operating room in case they needed surgery on the way back.

There was a C5. this plane was HUGE!!!! It can hold 32 pallets but the amazing fact was how many ping
pong balls it could hold! Can you guess how many?......... Wait for it................... ok here is the amount!  25,844,746!!!!  Now that is a lot of ping pong balls!!!

We saw so many different planes and got to go in some of them! We got to sit in the cockpit of one of the planes!

Here are some of the planes we saw and a picture of one of my kids in the cockpit!

We also got to see a plane land on the runway!

Here are a few pictures:

This was awesome!!!

Then we went into the museum and saw some more planes! The kids got to listen to some recordings of pilots talking about when they flew the planes.

There was a small plane for them to sit in and get their picture taken. Here is one of my girls in the plane:

Overall it was an amazing day! Fun was had by all! Here is our group photo!!!!

If you ever get a chance to come to Delaware, I strongly recommend going to the Air Force base and visit their museum. The experience will be one to remember!!!!!
