Washington/Dulles (National Air & Space Museum) – Sunday 23rd September 2018 (John Tomlinson)

The second main aviation museum that was on my to do list was the Udvar-Hazy Center located next to Washington-Dulles Airport.

Another excellent museum and larger than the museum in down town Washington at The Mall.

Of the reported 191 exhibits here, I required 164, so plenty to look forward to and photograph.

I supposed fours hours could easily turned in to six, but we had more travelling and sightseeing to do before the end of the day….Gettysburg being the end of day target.

We arrived in good time, just before opening at 1000hrs. After a security check, my wife had a quick look around from the balcony and then made her way to the cafe and relaxed with a drink and enjoyed reading a book. Garry and I wandered around, took in the atmosphere and clicked the camera for plenty of photographs.
