Out We Go

Turtle got here in the afternoon, so we went to the Air and Space Museum that's right over here in Chantilly. The first part was an observation tower where you could watch planes take off and land from Dulles International Airport and hear the communications between pilots and air traffic controllers. It was neat.

The center was set up like a big hangar. In addition to the many cool aircraft, they had missiles on display as well. Like this one:

There was a space hangar too. It had satellites and an R2-D2 mailbox and the first Enterprise.

No outing with Turtle would be complete without a crazy picture of one of us doing something crazy. We weren't sure what this thing was, but this seemed to fit.

They had a Concord and the Spirit of Columbia and the Winnie Mae and the most awesome SR-71 Blackbird.

It was a great way to spend an evening.
