We had family in town for the weekend and took a trip to the Air and Space Museum in Northern VA, near Dulles airport. This museum is the companion museum to the one on the National Mall and houses larger aviation artifacts like the fastest jet-powered plane, Blackbird, (black plane, pictured below), and the space shuttle "Enterprise" (pictured behind Blackbird). Enterprise was gi-normous, by the way. When was the last time you saw a space shuttle?
The museum is a must see if you're in town and appreciate this form of history. I enjoyed our visit and especially liked my ride with Kyle in one of the museum's 5 simulators. We went upside down in a mock airplane, several times, while I was behind the wheel. Although fun during the ride, I felt dizzy and sick for a good hour afterward. Ride at your own risk.
hope you had a great weekend too,
