DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The world’s only remaining XB-70 will be moved to its new location at the fourth building of The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force on Tuesday.

Along with the aircraft, other exhibits and educational centers will head to the same building that will house aircraft from the museum’s Presidential, Research and Development (R&D) and Global Reach collection, as well as a new and expanded Space Gallery.

The building will open to the public in June 2016. The XB-70 could fly three times the speed of sound and was used as a research aircraft for the advanced study of aerodynamics, propulsion and other subjects, according to the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
