Recently went to National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center out near Dulles. Since I enjoyed reading your TR's so much, I wanted to give back a little and share photos of the amazing museum, below.

I by no means claim to be an expert photographer, but welcome your comments, questions, etc.

I would recommend anyone go to this museum as it truly is amazing, best part is that ---like all Smithsonians-- it is free. Parking is $12, but not bad. It's a little far from DC, but near IAD (Dulles Airport,) Enough writing, on to the photos, again, comments welcome!


They have a tower at the museum overlooking Dulles....


In the right-hand corner, you can see a jet just touched down and it's wheels smoking


Caught a Lufthansa jet taking off, here is in sequence...about 3:35pm EDT on Sunday, where was it going?






A F-14 fighter jet was just brought to the facility


Air France Concorde was promised to the Smithsonian


Concorde engines:


Boat/Jet from WWII


Old Lufthansa Jet...compare it to the earlier take-off photo


Neat display of airports across the U.S...NYC


A340 landing gear:


FedEx jet


Checklist inside the FedEx jet


Space Shuttle Enterprise


Rescue hatch on the shuttle


Entry plaza to the museum


Major donors


Southwest jet rising


Thanks for viewing!

Sigh. This is one of those 2 things that I miss about DC...
I can't see the pictures on this computer for some reason (I'm in the domicile, and they prolly have it screened) so I'm assuming you didn't get any pictures of the connie. They had just finished the majority of the maintenance on her before I moved away, so I hope that when I go back I get to see her all fixed up!



...Now they face an even greater danger...Tyrannousaurs in F-14's!!

Good stuff. I've actually visited the Udvar-Hazy Center twice. It's a cool little museum. I really enjoyed the air traffic control exhibit and the observation tower. It was a very enjoyable trip.

The same place I am going to on Friday night on AF. That was flight #415 headed to Munich Germany.



Where did everybody go?
