Yesterday we decided we should check out some of the Smithsonian offerings. It was a bit late in the day and so we decided we would go see the National Air and Space complex out by Dulles airport. This is the facility where they have things that are too large or just would not fit in the museum facilities on the mall and we knew we would need more time to visit the museums there.
Anyway, it was a nice trip and we got to see some interesting aircraft. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

and the Virgin Atlantic Global Flyer.
