Memories of Washington D.C. - Part 3

One day was spent visiting the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.  This is a Smithsonian Air and Space Museum annex near Dulles Airport in Virginia.


One of the retired SR-71 ("Blackbird") spy planes



The retired Space Shuttle Discovery



Discovery's thermal tiles scorched by its 39 space flights



The center has an incredible number of aircraft and other artifacts on display in a huge building.



A view of part of the huge shop where restoration projects are always taking place



A very important part of America's military history



They even have a couple of Soviet MIG fighters on display.
