The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force is in the midst of a multi-phase, long-term expansion plan. The Air Force Museum Foundation is currently supporting a major capital construction program to expand the museum's current one million square feet of exhibit space with a fourth building that will house the Space, Presidential Aircraft, Research & Development and Global Reach Galleries.

Each week we will show a photo of the construction progress. Click here to browse a slideshow of expansion photos.
