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.
