This was not at the top of my list, but so glad we went. This is the 2nd Air & Space museum and is housed near Dulles Airport. It contains major examples from the Wright Brothers to the Concord to military aircraft. It has the actual plane-The Enola Gay-that dropped the atom bomb on Hiroshima. This is all displayed in two enormous hangers. We watched an I Max production on aircraft carriers that actually took you inside their huge engine and the catapult used to launch the fighters.
We also ran into several Los Angeles County Search and Rescue guys in Washington for training…small world. A couple of them knew Christopher.
