Air and Space Museum

We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in Centerville, VA for a few days while we visited my brother and also took the time to visit the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum new annex at Dulles Airport.

These are photos of the Space Shuttle, Enterprise.

They had one of the retired Concords here, too. I was disappointed. I wanted to the see the inside.

This photo below brought us full-circle. It is the Blackbird and we saw one of these at the Pima Air Museum in Tucson, AZ last fall. Here they would not let you get close. At Pima, we walked under it and even climbed up into one of its bays.

This is Doug standing by a P-47. His dad flew one of these in World War II.

Below is the whole Enola Gay. I said that because years ago its nose was in the Smithsonian's Air and Space on the Mall, but they removed it, put it in storage for many years, and now the whole plane is on display here at the Smithsonian's Air & Space at Dulles. The Enola Gay is the plane that dropped the atomic bombs on Japan.
