Aviation is one of those subject that perks my ears. They don’t actually perk, mind you, but it gets my attention. Though I rarely get an opportunity, I love to fly. Lately, that only seems to happen when I travel to a conference every few years.

Visiting the Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. is like a sports fan going to the Baseball Hall of Fame, but better. These are the machines that propelled our country through the last century and made our world a smaller place. Some are the exact planes that made the history we read as children, while others a representative of an era now gone by. You can’t help but be in awe as you walk among these heros of our past.

  1. I love how you got the view out of the windows too. I passed this one by when I was there. I wanted to make it back later, even though it would have been closed, for an outside in view. But, alas, I never made it.

  2. Wow! I love this one! The HDR gives it almost a cartoon / surreal feeling. It reminded me of when as a teenager I loved going to the airport and watching the planes take off and land. As a matter of fact, whenever I get to fly, I love the sensations of the plane taking off and landing! And, of course, I’m always glad when the pilot is successful in achieving both of those maneuvers.
