4/2/2013 - DAYTON, Ohio -- The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force will close its Presidential and Research and Development Galleries until further notice beginning May 1, 2013, as part of budget reduction requirements due to sequestration.

Best part of the museum will be closed till further notice... :wtf:
This part has the Air Force One's and XB-70.
