The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center: Highlights

Posted on Friday, April 18, 2008

Space Shuttle Enterprise

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, their annex facility out by Dulles International Airport.

Longtime Readers™ will know that I’m a complete airplane geek. So I took the opportunity, and I brought my cameraphone with me. The result is a new Flickr photoset with nearly 50 photos of what I thought were the highlights of their collection.

I’ve taken the time to mark up each photo with a short essay that explains what you are looking at, why it’s significant, and how it fits into the history of aviation. So if you’re an airplane geek, a history geek, or just a geek, I hope you enjoy browsing through it.

I have heard all of your Heroes of the Web. They are really funny! I was wondering if there is another site i can go to to read the “boards” that you refer to in your podcast.
Can you e-mail me any information you have on your show, your boards, other additional sites, etc?
Thanks!
Sincerely, Amb
