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.
