Walter J. Boyne, John Daley:
Thanks to my father-in-law, we got a sneak peek at the Smithsonian's brand new Udvar-Hazy Center out at Dulles, Virginia.
In brief, WOW. An overview of the exhibition hall:
An odd view of the Northrop N-1M:
The nose of the Concorde:
And the brooding Enterprise (notice its leading edges are missing, used for the post-Columbia testing):
The list goes on: Gossamer Condor. Blackbird. Enola Gay. Little Stinker...
The Udvar-Hazy Center opens to the public on December 15, and I hope to get back there before the year is out.
Thank goodness Silver Hill is finally yielding up its secrets.
