I've probably been there five times and I still can't get through it in a day. There are so many aircraft that they are quite crowded in some areas. It's fantastic!

I have visited many air museums, but never seen a 'zero' in person. With the long ss, did they say anything about bringing in a tripod. We haven't visited a lot of Ohio, but will put this on my list, right after I see my football team the Bengals play in person. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment. Great shot and thanks Bob

Bob, they do allow tripods, I took several photos with 30 second exposures, Most of the lighting in display areas is spotlights on the planes, otherwise low lighting, very dramatic. They actually have tips for photographers on the website.

I was there for several hours before my plane left, so I did a very fast walk with my tripod. Its very dark and the lighting is with spotlights. I had my 12-24 and did a LOT of 30 second shots. There are so many aircraft in the collection, it is really very difficult to appreciate all of them.....

You could probably spend an hour on some single aircraft if you wanted, to find good angles, lighting etc. The day I was there I did not see many tripods, maybe none. There were definitely going to be some disappointed people when the see their photos. I was really puzzled by the people with long telephotos. Of course then there were the super optimistic people trying light a stealth bomber with their on camera flash. You've got to be prepared, and the museum is great with their photography friendly policy and tips on the website.
