DAYTON, Ohio - Titan IVB stage two, and the payload fairing were both raised into their final position from 12-13 May, 2016. Maxim Crane Works and museum restoration crews worked together using two lifts to place the final sections onto the stand. The impressive Titan IVB, with roots going back to the early days of U.S. Air Force and civil space launch, is significant as the museum looks to share the story of USAF and USAF-enabled space operations in its Space Gallery. The Titan IVB will be on display in the new fourth building at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force which opens to the public on June 8. (U.S. Air Force photo by Ken LaRock)
