Udvar-Hazy Rocks!

Today I went to the Smithsonian Air and Space museum’s Steven F Udvar-Hazy Center (http://airandspace.si.edu/visit/udvar-hazy-center/) and all I can say is WOW….

Aircraft ranging from the Enola Gay to a Concorde to an SR-71 to the Gossamer Albatross are all displayed – some on the floor and some from the ceiling. The Shuttle Discovery is also there, along with lots of other spacecraft and space artifacts. Here are some representative pictures. If you’re a Facebook friend, you can see all 84 of them in a new album I just posted today.










This next one may be hard to see, but it’s obviously a happy plane!




Proof that Bill and I were there at the same time.



Five hours of walking around will kill anyone’s legs! Thank goodness for cruise control between there and Richmond.
